Must be some kinda show as the wood platform goes out into the track and the dirt is built up on one side so you can drive on it. I though at first it might be a drive-in but there are no speakers on the all the poles in the field so must just be markers for parking.
It look as though the cars are supposed to jump that ramp?
I think the platform slopes from ground level on the left. Looks like a '35 or so Tudor so the T's are older. I don't see any pigs. Interesting that the cars in competition are all tourings.
They used to use those jumps at county fairs. My '14 had a busted sill due to that sort of abuse.
I guess this competition/demonstration activity must have evolved into the current and even-more-stupid demolition derby some people enjoy......I would rather putt-putt down to the ice cream shop and sit on the running board and discuss the car and the weather with folks......as we get older the nature of our fun and other values changes?
at the minnesota state fair they once laid track in front of the grandstand and had two of the "obsolete" steam engines crash head on! now thats entertainment !
