Photo Essay: A Day at the Races

I suddenly had an urge to see auto racing in SL, and checked my events list on the off chance there might be such, and what do ya know, there was! I dropped in on the Tahiti International Raceway which is floating up above Tahiti Isle. As you might expect, sitting above a Mall is lag hell, but the race track is cool, and the racing scripts (I believe written by Gremlin Glitterbuck) are very nice — keep track of average speed, order of finish, etc. This has some potential. More pics follow.

Screw the Indy cars. Screw formula one. I want that!

Uri checks out the pit.

And if your vehicle is crap like mine and breaks down, there is this rig to pull it off the track.

    yeah but how was the NOISE? i was once at a NASCAR race in New Hampshire, and the most glorious thing about it was the NOISE. nothing else makes a noise like that.

    I confess that the .wav files could use some work. The cars sound a bit like remote control model airplanes.
