New Hampshire in the Morning

Go Speedracer, Go!

M – I will never complain about potholes on River Road in Manchester ever again. On Wednesday, I went on a trip in a street-legal Indy car. Not on a smooth track. On city roads. NH Motor Speedway offered me the opportunity to  cruise with driver Grant in a 1600-pound Indy race car. Was it fun? Yes! Was it comfortable? No, but still worth the experience. We brought the red rocket to Camp Foster for the kids at the Boys and Girls Club summer camp to enjoy. Boy, did they! Smiles, questions, pictures and more questions for Grant. I sat in a small opening with no seat right behind the driver. At 5-10 and 160 pounds, I barely fit into my compartment. Grant is a tad bigger. He had to remove the detachable steering wheel just to fit into his tiny space. Once we got going, I forgot how tight my legs were in front of me. It was literally like driving a supercharged go cart in traffic. Loud, very low and fast! With about a 2-inch chassis clearance above the road, I felt every rock that kicked up under my butt on the dirt road to Camp Foster. I have new-found respect for the likes of Danica Patrick who literally muscles her car for hours at 200 mph. I had a great time and I’m hoping to be able to sit down again one of these days!
