2012 Long Beach IndyCar – Track Work Begins

The Hairpin (Turn 11) before…

The front straight (Shoreline Drive) is not exactly straight! Standing starts this year???

Turn 4 awaiting rumble strips…and paint.

Turn 8 heading toward the back stretch. In the Formula 1 years, the cars would go up this hill and turn right at the next light (Ocean).

Looking back at the backstretch from the entry to the recently re-paved Turn 9.

It looks like a parking lot now, but next month this will be Turn 10! More new asphalt here too.

The first IndyCar race I attended…victory circle @ Long Beach.
