PRI 2015

I was fortunate enough to attend the Performance Racing Industries trade show this weekend as a representative of the Purdue FSAE team. After a lot of hard work getting sponsors and parts for our car this year, I was able to explore a bit.

Before this year, I had never heard of PRI, so I did not know what to expect. Oh boy was there was a lot of impressive machinery there. Lots of drag cars and the like, but I stayed true to my inner road racer and only took pictures of the cars that really stood out to me. Some highlights below, full album here. Enjoy!

Dat ass! I was blown away by the rear of this car when watching the Blancpain races this year. In person, it is truly extraordinary. My favorite rear of any car, ever.

2011 McLaren MP4-26. While I was standing between the front wheel and sidepod, I had an epiphany that this was the closest I have ever been to a Formula 1 car. I saw them at the 2014 USGP, but at a distance of course. Seriously insane that this happened.
