So today Edmonton's IndyCar race promoter, Octane, unveiled the new track layout for the race. The layout, worked on by the promoter and NZRConsulting (Tony Cotman) is pretty awesome, especially when in comparison to the old track. It has 2 very long straights, and 3 clear passing zones with possible others.
The buzz is out there; Mike Cockrall, one of the guys behind saving the race, even posted on a familiar forum that he's gotten 150 comments, all positive about the new track. Awesome!
Another site posted a fuzzy screen-capture from Google Maps with numbers to show the locations of circuit turns but it's pretty difficult to read. Since the airport is clear from Google and because the overlay is worth fan's interest to see the track comparison without eye-strain; I decided to start from scratch and even spent more time on it this go-around, and I present to you now:
Ye Official GrabBagSports Super Exclusive, you totally couldn't make by going to GoogleMaps searching 'Edmonton City Centre Airport' pulling screenshots then merging images and adding arrows, text and nifty Photoshop effects, Edmonton City Centre Track Map:
So what say ye fans? Do you like the new track? the old track? Any ideas?
