Met's Spring Training / St. Pete Grand Prix 2007

Mets Spring Training / St. Pete Grand Prix 2007

Went the last Mets Spring training game, which was played in the Tropicana Dome in St Petersburg.  Very different in a dome.  After the game, I realized the St Pete Grand Prix was going on a few blocks away.  We took a shuttle to the harbor area and got into the race, which was like one big infield inside the track. They had allot of kid activities including a Sony truck with lots of games. We wondered around and were able to get into the grand stands for free on a corner. I was really excited when I realized Audi was racing 2 TDIs, which actually won (1st and 2nd places) the race.  They sounded so quiet compared to all the gas burners :)
