Besides looking at cars at the Seattle Auto Show last Saturday, Lyle enjoyed getting to drive a one-lap race car simulation in the Mazda display area. It seemed funny for him to have to buckle in for a simulation, but as it turned out the seat moved around quite a bit during the course of the drive, so it made sense.
Lyle's an avid auto-racing fan, and he used to participate in an on-line racing league years ago, with a steering wheel attached to his computer. I can't remember what race track he said was the one featured in the simulation, but it was one he was familiar with... and in fact, was his favorite track to race. He actually scored quite well (not surprisingly to me), in spite of "spinning out" once.how much I know about cars?) Turns out the blue paint job was a $1,000 option. I'm not sure what it would look like without it.
LeMay Museum. Lyle had visited the museum one weekend earlier this year while I was at one of my homeschool conventions, and had told me how impressive it was.
Maybe we can make another trip to Seattle for that.
