  • Can one of you Indy Hoosiers take some pix for us.......

    of the new look of the turn one infield?
    I would sure appreciate it and I'm sure many others would as well.

    One of the members here was periodically posting pictures to their blog. Can't remember the name right now.

        Yup, that's the guy.

        Here is the most recent update I found on his website, for photos of the new "MotoGP Road Course" area.

            Today's going to be high of 60 and party sunny. I might take a track tour today and take my camera.

              I went by the track on Thursday and very little has changed since the last photos from the track. I know they will construct some kind of inside wall and catchfence on the inside - but the view from the museum of turn 1 was fantastic!

                    On my way out the door right now. Think I'm only going to take some shots from the museum parking lot though.

                        ...I can see enough in those pictures to determine that IMO they've totally ruined the turn 1 infield, just as they did the turn 4 infield. :mmph:

                          The T1 infield deserved to be torn up... Those POS infield bleachers should have been either upgraded or demolished long ago... oh, IMHO, of course.

                            ...the bleachers weren't the greatest, and it's certainly nowhere you wanted to sit on race day. I don't have much of a problem with the bleachers going away, it's the infield itself I'm disppointed to lose. I always liked parking there on practice and qual. days. During those days it was kinda nice during the day to go back to your vehicle to re-stock the cooler, perhaps grill a little something to eat and converse with others in the vacinity doing the same thing.
