Thanks for posting! I never raced at Riverside, but spectated there ... in the old days you could stand right next to the track, no guard rails, etc...the Greek almost ran over my feet...the other great place was on the hill where the bridge ran over the finish line...just the sound at the top end between the hills was unforgettable!! Really sorry the track is long gone.
