Stopped by SmartCenterIndy on Friday and picked up some touch-up paint (bad thing with the metallic blue, it CAN get dinged by idiots that you park next to :( ), and Walter said to be on the lookout for an event coming Memorial Day weekend - he mentioned Indy 500 and Guinness Book of World Records.... he was with some potential buyers, so didn't have much time to chat.
I drove on the Speedway track before (198something, way back when I was in high school, they were testing some cars, the group we were with was watching, and they let us each drive 1 lap (but the cars were sedans, and they didn't let us "open them up" - bummer).
I think it would be a hoot to see a bunch of "toy" cars doing laps at the Speedway!
We just got our new smart car on Thursday so we have almost had it a week. I am still pumped even though my wife drives it everyday. Walter told us that they were trying to get 100 smart cars together and drive around the speedway on May 20th. We would be 2 wide and only going 20 or 25 mph but it would still be fun. He also said to dress up the car for the race and there might be some prizes!
My husband and I have had out Smart since Jan 10th and we can't wait to drive on the track - we still absolutely LOVE our little car and actually got to 'order' our car this past weekend. We got an orphan in Jan - if my husband gets his Stratoliner paid off in time then he can have the new Smart!!!! Hope to see you all on the 20th. Kathy - Smart52
