Practice Run at the St.Petersburg Grand Prix
St.Petersburg has hosted the IndyCar series for the past 12 years. For at least a week it has been difficult to navigate the downtown city streets because some have been blocked off for the race which was held Sunday. It is an 1.8 mile long waterfront course with 14 turns. It includes a combination of adjacent downtown streets and extends unto the runway of Albert Whitted Airport. From our seats Friday we could see way off in the distance Tampa Bay, and St,Petersburg Harbor and Marina.
