Santa Stops in Indy

T’was almost the night before Christmas and there were only hours to go… The traffic in, out and around the shopping malls was horrific, the grocery stores were flaying away while trying to keep up with grumpy shoppers demands and everybody was in a hurry to get somewhere…

Not sure if I’ve been naughty or nice this year and I definitely haven’t made a list for Santa to check twice… I’m pretty sure that I won’t get the Ferrari F430 I ask for every year, but I do know that Santa’s been extra busy preparing for his upcoming ‘round the world jaunt…

On Wednesday, Santa’s elves’ dropped off the first 10 production Panoz DP-01’s at Champ Cars Indianapolis headquarters. There members of the 10 teams committed to competing in the 2007 season gathered to pick up there shiny new “toys…”

The teams proceeded to collect their unpainted chassis, load them into awaiting transporters and haul them back to there workshops “just-in-time” to return home before Christmas…

The teams will be given a brief respite to enjoy the holidays,
have some eggnog and see what else Santa brings them before going back to work. The teams will immediately strip down their new “steeds” in order to prepare them for the upcoming seasons first test…

Champ Cars first official test session for the teams and their shiny new DP-01’s is January 23-25, 2007 at Sebring…
