Day 19 – Wednesday 07/24 – Car-racing adrenaline at Daytona International Speedway

Day 19

Thursday was a day to remember for race car lovers as the day’s visit was at the Daytona International Speedway, a must-see stop in Florida. The race track is located very near Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and it features special backstage tours. Opened in 1959 to host racing that was held at the former Daytona Beach Road Course, the Speedway is home of the Daytona 500, the most prestigious race in NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing).  In addition to NASCAR, it also hosts races of Superbike and Motocross, among others.

During the tour, students learned more about American motor racing and the history of the race track.  They visited the well-known start/finish line and rode down the pit road to get a close-up view of the pit stalls. Also included in the tour, the International Speedway Corporation Archives Museum contains one of the world’s largest collections of trophies and race cars, as well as other items from the world of speed. The pictures are awesome!

 

Quarta-feira 24/07 – Automobilismo e adrenalina no Daytona International Speedway

A quarta-feira foi histórica para os amantes do automobilismo, pois a visita do dia foi no Daytona International Speedway, parada obrigatória na Flórida. O autódromo está localizado bem próximo do campus da Embry-Riddle e oferece tours especiais para os bastidores. Inaugurado em 1959 para receber GPs nacionais e internacionais, sua famosa corrida é a Daytona 500, a mais importante da NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing). O local ainda recebe disputas de Motocross, Superbike e outras modalidades.

O passeio permitiu aos alunos conhecer mais sobre o automobilismo americano, a história do autódromo, visitar garagens, inspeção técnica e pit road. O Museu International Speedway Corporation Archives contém uma das maiores coleções do mundo de troféus e carros de corrida, além de outros objetos do mundo da velocidade. As fotos ficaram muito boas!
