I had a great time at the Indy 500. Not only that – Cate had a great time at the Indy 500. She loved it. We are both astonished by this turn of events.
It was an astonishing spectacle from the pre-race events to the event itself.
We had fabulous seats on the top level and in the shade – with a view of the main straight - the pits and turn 1.
I made ham and cheese sandwiches with raspberry and wasabi mustard. We washed these down with mandarin flavored mineral water.
On the way in Cate bought a pair of heavy duty ear muffs. I made do with the ear plugs given to us on one of our flights. These were not adequate and my ears are still ringing.
Cate says she would like to go again – but only if we can get good seats. This is not easy. Those who bought the more expensive seats have the option to buy them again the following year.
What happens is that everyone buys them – and sells them if they do not use them for themselves.
So the only way to get tickets is to buy them from one of the existing ticket holders – and of course an exorbitant price.
But I will see what I can do.
