The fine friendly Formula one folks have released their schedule of races for 2019! For those of us here in the USA, we have the race in Austin which has usually been in October now showing up in November. The next closest race in Montreal remains early in June, so I hope you're out of school by then for the race on June 9th. Also close, Mexico City's date will come up on October 27th.
For anyone wanting first hand reporting, photos, and stories from these events, the NMS squad would be happy to grant your wish! All you have to do is send us the plane tickets, race tickets, and some extra spending money and we'll let you know how it turns out! We'll be happy to take photos, write stories, whatever you want!
