1997 Indy Lights Dixie Crystals Grand Prix – Track Action

Archives

Here are some more scans from the photos I found of the 1997 Indy Lights Dixie Crystals Grand Prix.  Eight of these are from Indy Lights track activity and the ninth one is Mark Blundell from the PacWest Racing CART team doing a demo run in his Motorola Reynard.  Mauricio Gugelmin was also there that weekend doing demo runs in his Hollywood Reynard.  Seeing the CART demo was one of the highlights of my weekend.  Blundell did a lap of 1:01.4 around the 1.8 mile course but the team reckoned they could have gone faster with more preparation time.  If I recall correctly, they stopped in Savannah for the demo on their way back from the CART race in Brazil and they didn’t have full road course setups on the cars.  PacWest eventually became KV Racing Technology, which is currently an active Izod IndyCar Series Team.
