Indyanapolis - On Aug. 27, GoPro and INDYCAR joined forces to produce an interactive 360-degree video of the Verizon IndyCar Series' ambitious endeavor to send cars across one of the world's most iconic locations - the Golden Gate Bridge.

Four competition Indy cars that competed in the season finale GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma on Aug. 30 participated, piloted by Josef Newgarden, Marco Andretti, Graham Rahal and Will Power. Andretti led the procession in the No. 25 Andretti Autosport Honda driven in six Verizon IndyCar Series events by the late Justin Wilson, who passed away Aug. 24 due to injuries sustained in a crash. The event was dedicated in memory of Wilson.

James Hinchcliffe drove the INDYCAR Experience street-legal two-seater with the series' championship trophy, the Astor Cup, as his passenger in the rear seat. Holmatro safety trucks followed behind the procession bearing flags with a logo created to honor Wilson.
