Once invented to proof that the cars can actually drive further than from the trailer to the show field and maybe once over the ramp the tour not only gives those not fortunate enough to get on the field on Sunday the opportunity to see a good portion of the cars but also for all cameras a memorable image in front of the Pacific. As mentioned several time during the last days the Tour had to be redesigned after the horrible forest fires down highway one towards Big Sur.
