The Baltimore Grand Prix is in its second day, and while walking around has become more than annoying, it’s still been fun.
Here are a few pictures I snapped between yesterday and today that I thought you guys might enjoy. I love this event so far. It’s been great fun, however there are so many people that the bridge that you use to walk over the area of turns 9-10 on the track is always packed! And I don’t mean, like, a lot of people. No, it’s so many people that both sides have lines of close to a half mile long… That’s ridiculous! It’s all because the car corrals and American Le Mans team paddocks are in the back. So when the teams aren’t on the track, they’re back there working on the cars, and thousands of people are watching.
I will say, though, the Baltimore Grand Prix definitely needs to come back in 2012, but there should be more seating areas for everyone. I could see Grand-Am even potentially doing a race here, too.
I’m a little partial to this area because it’s where I was born and raised. So being at the first ever Streets of Baltimore feels great, but it’s even better when you’re part of the media and get to mingle with the drivers and teams on a more personable level.
So enjoy the photos from the 2011 Baltimore Grand Prix.
