Yep! And we decided to wander around past the entrance and empty ticket booth and bleachers to see if there was anything going on. Kind of like exploring…. ever done that? Just gone to see what you can see?
Sure enough a car was making the rounds around the track getting some test trials in. You can't see much from the parking area. It is flat. So we parked near 6 or 8 other cars and went up onto an observation mound.
I found a map online.
It was hard to keep the fast car in the frame at times…good thing for the 'continuous' button on the camera. One fun thing was seeing a couple nearby who had a rented RV. Patrick and (forgot her name) are from Switzerland on vacation. They rented their rig out of Miami and were driving around doing the same thing we were doing. Exploring.
And we saw another cool car. A couple of guys brought folding chairs to watch the trials.
They were driving in style too - a 1961 Corvette.
On the way out we passed the grandstands and saw the winners banners from 1952.
For a place with limited access, it was fun to see some Indy Car action up close. A real bonus on a day 'just out exploring'.
Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles! Leave a message and say 'hi' - its always nice to know who's out there!
Until next time...
