Without a doubt, preparing for your first Grand Prix experience is a marathon of planning and strategizing. Dreaming of this day for over ten years, it all seemed a bit more glamorous than the past 24 hours. While not going into the specific details of our drama-filled day, we're glad to finally be getting on the road to drive to Montreal from Albany, NY.

We've gained a lot of, er, experience (of course, experience is what you get when you don't get what you want), and if the image of our temporary workspace in the Albany Airport as we await the arrival of Contributing Editor Andrew Swinghamer is any sign that we're ready to get this show on the road, then we're well on our way. (Thank you FREE WIFI!)

So, in just a few short hours we'll be in Montreal ready to see the Canadian GP Free Practice tomorrow morning! The day is almost here and it couldn't come soon enough...

If you are in town for the Canadian GP, swing by the W Hotel Montréal's Wunderbar tomorrow at 5:00PM. We've planned a casual happy hour to meet and chat with F1 fans from around the world. We'd like to meet you, introduce ourselves, and answer questions about the Circuit of the Americas track that is under construction in Austin, Texas for the return of the United States Grand Prix in 2012. We will have limited information and merchandise on hand to share with you!
