My family gave me the Indy Racing Experience for Christmas... I scheduled it for this weekend hoping for nice weather, and it was VERY nice.
The whole family went along, and they let the boys right by the car as I was getting strapped in...
|All suited up!|
|Sure looks fast...|
|Posing for the picture that you KNOW you are going to buy at the end of your "experience"...|
|The sun was in their eyes - they were excited...|
|"Is now a good time to tell you I need to go to the bathroom?" :)|
|On my extra lap - apparently the instructor didn't see the checkered flag, so we took one more spin...|
|Done soooo soon...|
So in the end, it was a LOT of fun. Very exciting even at only 135 mph max speed. I averaged a little over 105 for all my laps - you follow the instructor and he slows down if you get too close - and I did a few times :)
I was a little disappointed to hear that its a motorcycle engine, not a de-tuned INDY motor. The biggest surprise was NO SHIFTING. They were breaking clutches too often, so they start you in 5th gear and give you a push... Oh well...at least I didn't have to worry about screwing up the gear...
It was an awesome present, I'm a very lucky man :)
