Hype News: Indy Cars Cross The Golden Gate Bridge In Honor Of Justin Wilson (Video)

IndyCars_GoldenGateBridgeVideo

The next and final race in the Indy Car 2015 season is the Grand Prix Of Sonoma up in northern California.  To promote the race, the iconic Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco was shut down (at least half of it was anyway) and five Indy Cars were sent across it to deliver the Astor Cup (series championship trophy) to the race venue.

While this event was likely at its birth a plan to simply promote the last race of the season, it was also turned into a tribute to Justin Wilson who tragically passed away earlier this week due to an accident.  Leading the Indy Cars was Marco Andretti (Justin’s teammate) driving Justin’s #25 car.  Will Power, Josef Newgarden, and Graham Rahal followed while James Hinchcliffe brought up the rear driving a two seater Indy Car with the Astor Cup occupying the back seat.

Two safety vehicles were on hand as well, flying Justin Wilson’s flags to further honor the driver.  You can watch a video of the event below.
