So apparently there's a European NASCAR championship

  1. Lol NASCAR.
     
  2. HEY! DON'T MAKE FUN! THEY ARE SPECIAL LITTLE BOYS! WITH UNIQUE TALENTS. JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE A LITTLE SLOW DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN LAUGH AT THEM!
     
  3. There is one oval track in the UK, to my knowledge. It's about an hour from me.

    Rockingham Motor Speedway

    I see it on TV when I watch BTCC (and the associated support races like Ginetta Juniprs and British F3), but naturally they use one of the the infield track layouts which only uses 1 of 4 banked turns.

  4. Seems like only some of the tracks are oval.
     
  5. Yeah as far as I can tell there are longer tracks with more than two distinct corners, and short tracks (like, 1 mile or 1/2 mile) with what looks to me to be two straights and a corner either end, although apparently this one (Bristol Motor Speedway, and probably all the others, come to think of it) somehow has four corners

    I think they count both the entry and exit of each end to be it's own "corner", but that doesn't make much sense to me.
