of the Indycar Series !
and 2008 Indy 500 Track Car Owners, READ ON .....
Pace Car Registry has been contacted by the National
Corvette Museum in search of the owners of the (57)
2007 and (61) 2008 Indianapolis 500 Pace cars that
were assigned for use at the Speedway in 2007 and
have in their posession the "Photo Books"
that were developed for each of the cars.
is a Photo Book? When the cars were distributed
to the keepers of the cars during the race (IMS
Festival Committee, Track officials, etc.),
they were also given a disposable camera and
told to take photos of the places they took
their cars - Indy 500 Festival events, or wherever.
These cameras were returned with the cars after
the race, and these photo books were created.
content varies per book, based on what photos
were taken, but there is a "standard"
photo set at the minimum.
here are some additional photos of the 2007
book has a black "felt" like feel
with an aluminum front cover and photo of the
2007 Pace car sitting on the bricks at the entrance
to Gasoline Alley. Also on the cover is an engraved
plate with the vehicle's VIN number, 2007 Indy
500 event logo, and 50th anniversary IMS Festival
inside cover has printed versions of these logos,
and also identifies who the car was assigned
to along with the VIN and track car numbers.
are full color photographs (not computer printouts)
that are 4"x6" in size.
there is plenty of room in the album for expansion
of your own photos of your car, or the event
if you were there!
2008, the same book is used, and on the cover
is a photo of the 2008 Black/Silver Pace car Convertible
sitting on the front straight across from Pit
Lane. It also includes the 2008 Indy 500 and Indy
500 Festival logos with your car's VIN number.
Again, photo contents will vary per car.
