IZOD IndyCar drivers Ed Carpenter, Justin Wilson, and Alex Tagliani visited Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana this past week in conjunction with the Racing for Kids organization. The visit, meant to be a unique opportunity for patients and families at Riley, turned out to be special for the drivers as well.

Ed, Justin and Alex had the opportunity to visit playrooms where the kids were drawing or playing with toys and video games. The drivers enjoyed talking with the children and giving away signed hats, hero cards, IZOD IndyCar Series calendars and Hot Wheels diecast. The children enjoyed the visit as well– greeting the IZOD IndyCar drivers with numerous smiles and autograph requests.

In addition to the playroom visits,  the IZOD IndyCar drivers also had the opportunity to visit individual rooms of children too ill to visit in common areas. For the patients and families at Riley, this week’s visit brought a momentary break for the challenge of childhood illness. For Ed Carpenter, Justin Wilson, and Alex Tagliani, the visit brought the chance to meet some of their biggest (well okay, littlest) fans.

Flickr and IndyCar Teams

I usually like to start the week with a blog post about Flickr. In this post, I thought I’d do some research and let you know if any of our IndyCar teams are using the Flickr world. We’re not the only ones that take lots of photographs over the course of a season and I found a few examples for you. Check out what some of the teams are doing.

KV Racing Technology, is incredibly active on Flickr with hundreds of images. Here’s a cool shot of E.J. Viso getting fitted in the new 2012 Safety Cell from Dallara. They cover all kinds of things through imagery.
