We Ran our Annual Enduro races last week. We had entended to run a 1 hour race with the Racers and a 500 lap race with the Formula 1 cars on a large oval.

We decided to just run both races for an hour as we decided to not change the track to an Oval and just run the layout we ran the racers on.

here is a drawing of the track we ran, and the trophies. (you can click them for larger views).

That looks awesome! Congrats guys!

thanks Tom. We had a great time. We are limited to running the enduro races outside, it was a good 95+ out there, we had plenty of traction, as the sun set and we finished the F1 race as the track cooled down you could really feel the traction going away.

That's real cool. I wish we had that option! It looks like the perfect weather over there to do that sort of thing. How big was that track? That's one big drive way!
