2011 Formula 1, 2 days and counting

see the ridges in the red & white stripe?
Albert Park is now closed to the public as they put in place the final barriers, signs, hospitality tents and advertising.

Pedaling my bike around the track, 
an overactive imagination can make it quite thrilling, I even overtook a guy on a scooter (who may or not have been turning off the road).

Much disliked by the locals for the disruption to usually sleepy Middle & Albert Park neighborhoods the association does its best to make up for it with free ear plugs, and free tickets to the Thursday's warm-up day, and loads of community notices & fliers.

'Local Access' passes are worn with pride on everyone's windshield... not just this week, but year round - which seems rather sentimental for something they claim to so dislike!
