Ya know, trespassing in many jurisdictions is not only tortious, but a misdemeanor.






Oh, and great looking C6 btw.

Yeah, what a coincidence to see that there That facility is GREAT! Even has a drag boat lake. The sound of the fuel burning drag boats even exceeds those of the top fuel cars and funny cars!! Simply AWESOME!!!

You can drive the whole way back to the Bondurant building (past the skid car area and open tarmac). The garages will be on your right and I would guess the C7's are sitting out back on the way to the Maricopa Oval.

On 5:00 on a Sunday afternoon I drove back in the distance in both lots to where the fence was locked. No auto transports visible. The building maintenance guy who was leaving as I pulled up said it was OK to do that. He also said he hadn't seen any C7s yet and said he couldn't tell me anything when I asked him if I should come back and hang around tomorrow. Anything else?

Hard to say, maybe their cars aren't there yet. When they got all their new CTS-V's in, they were lined up in the back (near the end of the front straight on the full course) of the maintenance garage.
I am sure if you call and ask, they'll tell you if the C7's are there yet.
FYI...gates should be open by 8 am tomorrow for new classes. Plus they run shifter kart classes in the evening so they don't close up until ~8-9 pm.

Think it would be enjoyed by some here if I had been able to post some photos here tonight of some C7s already delivered to Bondurant in Phoenix? That was my plan. Anything else?

I drive by there several times a week. I haven't seen any yellow vettes in their parking lot for several weeks.

Take over surveillance with camera on the ready if you are up to the task I gave it my best shot and was foiled

What is your problem? I am offering constructive suggestions to you regarding where Bondurant may have their cars. If it's not good enough for you then continue hanging around the old Firebird entry gate taking pictures.

The empty lots were definitely large enough for some unfettered foolishness (which isn't to say I haven't been known to do that on occasion ) but I just didn't feel like it tonight. As I drove out there I was thinking about how cool it would be if the transports were just pulling up as I was. A REAL photographic coup (of some coupes), if you will, to share with you folks

Nothin wrong with preserving tire...I've been known to do that as well.

Couldn't you infiltrate and hit the track! Being that close to a road course makes me antsy....I gotta have it! That's why I avoid strip clubs...
