11/6/08-Willows, CA- Thunderhill has just confirmed that Google will be coming out to the track to add the facilities to Google Maps and Street View. They will be here for the NASA 25hour-test day on Thursday December 4th. Google and Thunderhill want 5 cars to be in the shots for the Street View. The car will need to run about 2 laps during the lunch break at about 40 M.P.H. Eligible cars will be limited to all racecars registered for the 25hour.
Currently Google Maps only shows a big white block where Thunderhill exists. Once completed there will be a track map in the Maps view on Google. Also, the track and paddock will be available in Street View. This will allow one to do a virtual trackwalk, seeing the track at eye level as if one was standing on it all from a computer!
You could be one of the cars in this once in a lifetime experience that will be hosted by Google for many years to come.
Interested parties please email pictures of your car, in the shape it will be in at the 25hour to: firstname.lastname@example.org
