As usual the Honda Indy Toronto did not disappoint. It was a blast. And as an added bonus it was a great way to spend my birthday. Here in no particular order, are the rest of my shots from race weekend. Enjoy.
In the paddock.
Race winner, Dario Franchitti.
Some pit action.
INDYCAR rookie James Hinchciffe, who hails from Oakville, Ontario, was given the rock star treatment.
The story goes that when James Hinchcliffe was a kid, he met his childhood idol, the late race car driver Greg Moore here at the then Molson Indy. The story goes on to say that Hinchcliffe was so impressed with the fact that Moore took the time to talk to him when he was a fan, that now when he meets fans of his own, he goes that extra mile, because he remembers what its like to be on the outside looking in. Pretty cool guy.
Sebastien Bourdais waves to his wife and daughter in the stands beside me.
Finally getting my shot with my mythical white whale, Dario Franchitti.
Dario doing the pre-show on Versus.
Enjoying the show.
Lined up for the national anthems.
The view from our seats.
Danica Patrick got knocked into the wall in the early stages of the race by Takuma Sato and ended up going several laps down. This is a shot of her driving past Sato's pit and flashing the thumbs up sign in appreciation for him putting her into the wall.
Paul Tracy didn't have a great day either.
Helio had a terrible day with problem after problem.
EJ Viso exiting the pits
It was the ultimate guys weekend out in the sun, with fast cars, scantily clad women, and lots of beer.
What more could a guy ask for?
