There have been questions sent to us about whether the contest is open to people outside the U.S. Littelfuse tells us that the American races are open only to U.S.-based contestants and the China race is open only to individuals in China.

Indeed, passion is a major component of this, ChasChas. We're already hearing from people outside the country who want to attend the Indy 500.

I'm sure this is a dream trip for many of our readers. These cars are so state-of-the-art and are really serving as test beds for many of the electronics and 3D printing/manufacturing processes that will eventually make their way into more mainstream/traditional cars. As an example, check out our story on Prodrive which is using 3D printing technology to quickly produce highly accurate, production-ready parts for its race vehicle.

I agree, screenwriter. Looks like a nice opportunity. From what I've been able to glean from the Long Beach Grand Prix race, they're giving access to contest winners that extnds all the way to the point where they start "gridding" the vehicles onto the track.
