F1 Race Indianapolis
I got very lucky and got to go watch the Formula 1 race in Indy. Sorry for the lack of cropping but these raw images will have to do. This was my first F1 race and it was pretty cool!
The trip included a round trip flight on this Gulfstream jet. Our seats were at Grandstand C and this was where the cars were coming down the straigt-a-way to a turn. The cars were zipping by at 200 + MPH.
This BMW car caught fire right in front of us with about 7 laps to go. I think the driver was in 5th place when this happened.
Ferrari fans were out in great numbers cheering on their driver, Mr. Massa.
