The first F1 race I ever attended I was too young to have a license and had to talk my parents into going, it was so different back then (1966), you could walk through the paddock and into the garage to watch the mechanics work, I remember being like a foot away from Jack Brabham driving thru the infield, and the cars wore national colors and no advertising at all.
i dont mind the advertising on the race cars, its expensive to run in a lot of classes. in fact back in the late 70s we had western auto on our race car because they gave us garage space and some parts to keep our car on the track.

i just wish more amateur class racing would be shown again. it was fun watching vintage sports cars race up against later model hot hatches.
