The Parking Lot at Infineon Raceway for IndyCar Testing

This entrance shot is definitely a good sign of things to come.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all car event parking lots are sure to contain tons of Hoontastic rides.”

Last weekend, Infineon Raceway/Sears Point Raceway hosted IndyCar testing.  A handful of teams and drivers participated, most notably Formula One Iron Man Rubens Barrichello. Pictures of the race cars and a wrap-up of Barrichello’s answers at a very public press conference will be covered in a separate post.  This post will focus, for the most part, on the spectators’ cars.

Purists may not dig the plastic headlight covers, but this is a very clean 280ZX.

The juxtaposition of the brand new Bentley coupe and the Dakota Sport pickup says it all about car lovers. 
Something for everyone.
