Good tip, I'll have to remember that.

Sounds to me like 'wheels can not spin' is the best idea to protect a marshall. Work gloves are an excellent idea as well.

As pointed out above, trying to run smooth is often a lot quicker than trying to run all out. Now i've not been to this track yet, but the videos from last years race show it to be quite rough in sections. I saw a lot of drivers hit the gas hard only to slam into a rut/bump and go flying off the track.

Are the turns numbered? The driver of a flipped car could call out the turn # to the other drivers.... however that would take a lot of practice and learning of the course. Just a thought.

Mac, I'm definately interested in coming out to check this place out. My new buggy is almost complete and I'm hoping to put some laps in on your track. Will there be any more construction days needed to complete the track/facility? If so let me know. I'd be glad to help out.

Whats the preferred way to get a hold of you to find out if someone can show up at the track?
