The Grand Prix is coming to downtown St Petersburg Florida April 2-5, 2009

Grand Prix racetrack

Every year some of the streets in downtown St Petersburg Florida are turned into a racetrack for the Grand Prix. The 2009 event starts with a night parade on April 2nd and culminates with the 100 lap Indy car race at 2:45 pm on Sunday, April 5th. (click the photo for an enlarged view)

Barriers have been going up along some of the streets for days, and the megayachts have started to arrive. It’s a weekend you either love or hate and Bayfront Tower condominiums are the best or worst place to be, depending on your point of view.

Race organizers promise that this year will be quieter than the last few as there’s a new design on the exhaust system, providing a “mellow” or at least “more mellow” tone with a “pretty” whine.

ALVA International, Inc’s real estate office is a short 3 block walk from the racetrack, but fortunately doesn’t have any barriers along the street.
