Here at First In Watches we think pictures are nice, but video is nicer – and so we turned to our friends and partner TheTimeTV.com for their super-sweet video production of the event – which puts you behind the VIP tents and then right in the middle of the high horsepower action! $20 if you can avoid wincing when you see a couple of these super-sweet Lambo’s sideswipe the wall and spin out!!
Next up? The fourth of the six competitions scheduled for 2009 will take place on the Silverstone racing track in UK on August 15th. Stay tuned!
