These may sound obvious, but you'd be surprised how people forget:

1. Wear a hat
2. Bring sunscreen
3. Good & comfortable walking shoes
4. Small blanket to sit in the grass (unless you're staying in the stands)
5. Extra camera batteries
6. Immodium (.. Korean tacos)
7. Bottled water

I carried a small backpack to the F-1 race and they never looked inside it...but the will probably search bags this weekend.

$8.00 beers at a venue is actually pretty competitive, I would think they would be even higher

Full bar in the Velocity Lounge if you want to pay more for drinks.


I think the normal beer areas are $8 and $8.50 though.
