GRAND PRIX OF PORTLAND
110 LAPS | 216.04 MILES
Portland International Raceway opened in 1961 on the former location of the city of Vanport, which was destroyed by the Memorial Day 1948 flood. The 12-turn, 1.964-mile natural road course is relatively flat but contains several spots for passing opportunities, including a quick chicane at the end of the frontstretch, a hard-braking right-hander (Turn 7) leading onto the sweeping backstretch, and a three-turn complex leading back onto the fronstretch. Al Unser Jr. won the first Indy car race in 1984. In 1997, the race set the now current all-time record for the closest two-car and closest three-car finish in Indy car racing history on a road course. Mark Blundell beat second-place Gil de Ferran by 0.027 of a second, and beat third-place Raul Boesel by 0.055 of a second, in a three-wide finish.
We laser cut and hand paint a replica of the GRAND PRIX OF PORTLAND race track, that comes with stainless steel standoffs, to be proudly displayed as wall art.
The track design comes in 2 standard sizes which are laser cut from either a 800mm x 600mm Board or a 600mm x 400mm board. Each track design will pretty much utilize the space given without distorting the track shape.
The race track wall art can come with the track name in the center of the art piece too.
