2015 – Indy Car Pre-race at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg (Mar 27 to 29)

The pre-race festivities on the front straight are always an exciting place to be with the teams getting the cars onto the grid, the crowd of excited fans, and everything else that goes on before the race start. Hope you like the photos.
