This is really tough. I guess it could be a Reynard or Lola Indycar, around 1996/8-ish. I wouldn't say it is any earlier than that, because there is a .com website written on the car's front wing. Wherever that is does not look like a proper circuit...unless it is some kind of test/non-race layout like the Patriot course at VIR.
No fun if it's easy ;).

But not bad, PT!

It is indeed from a test session, in that timeframe. It is a permanent circuit...
I might need a clue.

I'm trying to use the guy's mullet to decide whether it is in America or Australia and I'm struggling.

I dont think it is Australian. Not something one off like a publicity thing in Hawaii (Hawaii Super Prix?).... they nearly had an Indycar/CART (non championship exhibition race there in 1998, but it fell over at the last minute. It was going to be a huge purse (several million to the winner)

Damn! It's Zak Brown!

I would have never guessed. The others, I do not have a clue.

Putnam Park near Indy, 1997..... according to Greg Murphy ex V8 Supercar driver and now part of the V8 Broadcasting team.

It's actually not Zak Brown - it's Greg Murphy himself, testing Zak's car after Greg was testing a Lights car.

Question has already been answered and it was not Zandvoort or even Europe.
