This track was designed with one purpose in mind -- to teach a
to the "mash the accelerator" school of racing. It worked. In the
year of operation, only one driver ever completed a full race lap,
that driver just happened to be the track's designer. The nature
track's construction (the walls are solid, except for drainage
a system of pumps is installed under the track) allows the racing
to be configured for off-road races, ice races, and even boat
The course begins with a 90-degree left followed by a 180-degree
(note that the track narrows from 3" to 2"!) followed by an
left onto the longest straight on the track. The track narrows
the corners after the northeastern 180-degree turn. Like the other
this U-turn prevents a driver simply drifting through those
some events, barriers are erected in the zig-zag sections
at the center, to prevent drivers straightening those corners. A third narrowing of the track occurs in the corners just prior to the finish line.
The "killer segment" of the track is the Serpentine, the 2"-wide
near the northwest corner. In one infamous event, the entire field
eliminated in the fourth 180-degree corner. The track designer claims he was the winner of that championship event.
Pits. The pit entrance is located 1" past the Start/Finish Line. The pit exit is located just on the other side of the wall from pit entry. The actual pit area is off the map.
Walls. Both the exterior and interior walls are 1/2" high and have infinite DP.
