    My Felt Speed 22 Takes on the Long Beach Grand Prix!

    Riding down to the beach I noticed the gates were open to the street course. Note the Long Beach Grand Prix is this weekend. I asked a couple of people working there if I could ride a short section of the track, the part closed to street traffic. "No problem" was their reply so off I went. Now I didn't get up to 200mph like the open wheel racers will but it was still a blast.

    First picture a shot looking south underneath the Firestone Bridge, next looking north into turn nine. Final two pictures I cooked turn 10 too hot and landed in the tire barrier. Luckily I and the Felt only sustained minor ego bruising. I was Black Flagged and told to take my Racer Fred Butt to the bike path.

    Too bad about your crash into the tire wall.

    No swimsuit in evidence, but this is my buddy Ray and Danica back in 2003 at the Cleveland GP. She was running for Bobby Rahal in Toyota Atlantics.

    Ray is ~6'0". so you can see how much of a munchkin Danica is. She's pretty cute, but a little non-curvaceous (un-curvaceous?) for my tastes...
