    2022 Indy 8 Hour Weekend

    SRO had a big weekend at Indianapolis, with several GT and TC races, plus a Viper Reunion. I was on the fence about going, but when I saw they had an inexpensive car corral that included parade laps, I went for it. Most of the grandstands were closed the whole weekend, so I mostly walked between the pit/paddock area (including pit entrance where I had a sweet angle of cars braking for the pit speed limit line) and the spectator viewing hills between turns 1 and 7.

    My little pocket super zoom was pushed past its limits in a lot of situations, but out of a couple thousand pictures taken, I think I ended up with hundreds of (admittedly very similar) keepers. My phone and the car's PDR did a little bit of work as well. My favorites are here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/AyPbgMJz7yFS6iw87

    And some highlights are below, including a souvenir and wings of a different kind:

    The Pirelli techs were just tossing them aside after they took them off the wheels during the 8 hour race. People were carrying them all over, some had two!

    Oh nice! I saw some of that on YouTube (which is turning out to be a pretty good source of live GT3 streams) and it was a very exciting finish.
