For Car Racing Fans: Must See Competition

I had no idea something like this existed or could be so entertaining. The announcers really add to the entire race along with the camera angles and slow motion. The amount of detail (and time it must have taken) to construct the track is, at least for me, pretty darn amazing. File this under "Why Didn't I Think of This?":

It's rigged. The car in the inside lane at the start has a shorter distance to travel and always ends up in front of the other car after the 1st turn.

That is just awesome! Excellent time waster, really liked the Camaro Summer Tournament.

"It's rigged. The car in the inside lane at the start has a shorter distance to travel and always ends up in front of the other car after the 1st turn."

Two cars race twice with a lane change. There's an interesting point system the DRC has as well. In any event, it's the announcers (and whoever writes the script) that make this entertaining.

I'll have to send this to my son for those weekends that Formula 1 is dark.

Reminds me of my old Hot Wheels racing as a kid.

That was a lot of fun!

I still have my Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars, unfortunately I got rid of the orange track.
