We weren't expecting it, but there were actually cars racing on a "track." There was only one course set up, so the Minis, MGs, Lotuses, and Land Rovers all ran the same course. It was awesome watching the Land Rovers make three point turns where the Minis barely had to turn their wheels. The Lotus wasn't so bad either:
We watched the Lotus' first run where he learned the course. We were a little worried he wasn't going to open it up. After about 8 runs of him at full throttle, it occurred to us that one doesn't buy a Lotus if one doesn't intend to open it up.
Proof I was there (and that I am huge, no wonder its so hard to get in and out of chairs):
The kids were also super stoked about the star stamps they got on their hands to show that we "belonged":
As luck would have it, Eric's super awesome vanity plate was waiting for us in the mailbox when we got home. It missed the show by hours =(
