Take a cruise around a legendary racetrack and find some beautiful buttes in Southern California as latest “Weekend Driver” column is published today in the San Diego Union-Tribune.
I visit the famous Willow Springs International Motor Sports Park and, just in case you don’t have an invitation to drive one of the tracks, take a very scenic and challenging drive around the area, located in Rosamond.
Where’s Rosamond? It’s just north of Landcaster and east of Edwards Air Force Base in the Antelope Valley, in northern Los Angeles and southern Kern counties. About four hours from here, it’s worth a visit.
And the car? A sweet 2017 Lexus IS 350 F Sport that made enjoyable the twisty roads around the track.
This is the 110th “Weekend Driver” column, which started running in the U-T in July 2000, by the way. It’s on sale at a newsstand near you.
