And racing 24 hours no less, with 20+ four-six person teams. The logistics alone are staggering.

They hold several of these endurance races during the year and their rules are consistent from country to country, so they expect 100+ racers from all over Europe. Cric Crac is in the track building business so a number of clubs like ICAR are updating their facilities with beautiful CNC tracks.

Very impressive.

Does Cric Crac own the Cric Crac Superdome?

Not sure if they own or lease the building but I'm sure it is more than naming rights. ;-) I did not have time to check it out. I do know they are into the track building business building beautiful CNC routed wood tracks for some of the local clubs. The picture shows I think original Ninco tracks but this year's race will feature wood tracks. I'll post a picture if I see one.

I do know that Cric Crac owns Scaleauto and IBBAutoRacing which is their distributer arm for Scaleauto, BRM, TopSlot and other major brands.

The driver panels are in the middle, there is another row of panels off the picture (the drivers race back to back) with another two tracks not shown. All four 8 lane tracks are routed wood CNC.

The building is leased, not positive but this might be used for their track building activities as well.

Wow,

 

The tracks are handed.

Does that mean the drivers race on each.

 

Are they all run clockwise.

 

Or one clockwise and then anticlockwise.

And then repeat.

 

Ie; run one L/H, left to right anticlockwise, one R/H, left to right anticlockwise,

Then;

R/H, right to left clockwise, one L/H, right to left clockwise,

 

I am getting giddy.

 

Who writes out the heats?????????  H,A,L?

 

Amazing.

Well done.

 

Be seeing you.
