Tried the new flat track at Pirahna today. Man, that is an awesome, smooth track. Had the only Retro type car on it, as others were running LMPs.

 

Excellent power, just couldn't hang with those LMPs, but really liked it. More practice for any upcoming SCRRA races on it for me, but, what a nice track.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Looks like every inch of it is a curve. Beautiful track.

Nice, looks like a King that was left out in the sun too long and melted.  :D 
 
Also shows how a raceway can have two tracks with essentially the same pattern but with totally different driving experiences.

Damn, yeah I did and it's only now I realised my fingers did not type what my brain intended LOL... must have been because I was chatting with an old studio engineer friend and describing a Stratocaster I made for a friend that had an 'Aperio' custom neck made by Greg Hails in Georgia :)... doh !!
 
Sorry, guys (edited my post).  :)

   Note the slightly curved main straight which allows everyone a better view of all turns!

I noticed that. At first, I thought it was lens distortion.
