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.

Sunny California Day + Car Event = Triumph Stag + NSX + 1960s Mustang
The Stag, incidentally, is for sale. 
A fleet of Audis for the . 
You can too. 
Who knew there was a road-going version of the TDI Cup car?
Note the personalized plate. 
This F-350 fire rig reminds me of another F-350 fire rig.  
This 1986-ish E32 with BBS wheels is still looking sharp, apart from the mal-aligned fuel door. 
Apologies are in order as this photo fails to capture the presence of this Zed. 
Purists may not dig the plastic headlight covers, but this is a very clean 280ZX. 
This Trans Am was the biggest surprise in the lot, and perhaps my favorite.  The second biggest surprise– there were at least three Crossfires there. 
The juxtaposition of the brand new Bentley coupe and the Dakota Sport pickup says it all about car lovers. 
Something for everyone. 
 That Bentley engine was emitting some serious BTUs.  It created its own micro-climate in the parking lot.

  • So what engine was swapped into the Stag? I've never heard of one of those running under its own original power.

    • More to the point, why mention it's for sale without providing any information? You know, in case any of us want to… um…. No, on second thought, I should probably just be grateful for its absence.

      • I purposely omitted the "for sale" info as a public service to y'all. You're welcome.

          Yes, public service.
          Should we expect a post on your new Stag next week?

    You must be new around here 🙂

      I just recently learned of its existence as well after seeing one in the parking lot of a local In-n-Out. I'll have to read that article a while later…

  • STAG!

    (notes lack of tow-truck)

    Gotta say, the Trans Am appears to be my favorite as well. Absolutely love the snowflakes!

    Hmmm… would it be blasphemy or even just weird to put a set of the reproduction ones on a GTO…?

    • I don't know if they would look right with the GTO/Monaro.

  • No closeup of the pastel blue W123 coupe from the last pic?

    Oh well, that white 993 is slick.

    • I could have easily spent another hour just taking photos of the cars in the lot. The one I regret skipping was a Mercedes-Porsche 500E.
