Any pre-F1 events scheduled to break in the track and get some rubber down on the new asphalt?

How about a SCCA regional event?

It won't leave much rubber, but as far as I know this is the only "event" happening before the race:

JohnDavid,

How did you get the invite? Is it free as long as you buy a Cadillac?

I'd love to get on that track with anything.

My brother and I did Kawasaki's "Ticket to Ride" in Dallas back in 1986. We had both just gotten our motorcycle licenses and we each got a Ninja 1000R. We were in heaven but the whole thing went by like the blink of an eye. I swore that I pulled a wheelie with nothing but the throttle in second gear. I was probably full of it, but it was awesome!

How did they come up with the name 'Americas'? What does that mean?

So it's the track of the western hemisphere? Is that the best they could do?
Couldn't they come up with something clever or memorable?
