I appreciate it's nowhere near finished but the track looks dangerous with no run offs and those steep or sloping banks waiting to launch cars in orbit if the shit hits the fan. Trying to emulate a street track when it's not needed.

Latest comment: maybe you should wait so till the track is finished before making your stupid assumptions.

Would have said that they are getting the track level right then will build the run-offs...

Yeah, I thought that as well it just seemed odd they hadn't removed run off areas as well. Maybe they have to crack on with allowing the track surface to settle before they know the final dealio. Time will tell but I'd bet it ends up with an Australian Grand Prix feel to it. Totally unnecessary when you're building a course in a desert, IMHO.

Does your knowledge have no limit. Is there anything you are not an expert on. (with the exception of having a life).

The yanks used to [laughingly] call F1 'cart racing'. Therein lies the problem...they think the cars are built in a blokes garage next to his house somewhere in Oxford. Time will tell if they take to it. Oh, and Blong: an F1 car will do rough terrain - it's got around 800bhp.

CART stands for Championship Auto Racing Teams, and represents a class of open-wheeled race cars that are similar to F1 cars, but not as fast. I suspect Blong's comment about rough terrain has to do with the normal ground clearance of the car. Sure, you can increase the ride height, but I suspect there are limitations

Just raise the suspension a bit. You don't think that car is in race trim do you?
