Drivers view of turn 1 light.

Light in turn 3 at pit entrance.

View down back straight. The 8" light looks a little small from here. Check out the unique pit/hot chute arangement.

Signal control buttons. Easy to figure out which buttons do what.

Soft wall on front straight.

Detail of soft wall. Passenger tires between plywood walls. Outer wall is fixed. Inner wall moves on impact.

Inner and outer walls a held together with lightweight chains. Bolts are used to adjust the chains so the tires are in compression.

Overlapping plywood panels.

Spare plywood panels for overlapping.

Pit entrance. Just follow the yellow line down to the...

Sharp left turn, which leads to...

the pit stalls. I bet that turn can be a real trick in a heavy B.

Pit road exit. A slight jog to the right, and onto the racing line. Looks tricky. Note the black marks and replaced plywood in the high impact hit area of the wall.

Trackside view of the pit exit.

Shaded grand stands.

He-man sized Bots-Dots used for speed breakers in the turns.

Paper number have the track name. Race each northern California track and collect the whole set.
