Can you imagine what the sound going through the tunnel would be like?

"The most popular forms of racing on a single site: Open Wheel, Stock Car, Mixed Configuration, Motorcycle, Drifting, Moto Cross / Off Road, Electric Vehicle Racing and much much more….. "

Is drifting a form of racing?

And what is electric vehicle racing? How would the circuit be different then a gas engine vehicle? Would there be plug-ins in the pit row?


...in all seriousness it looks like a great facility

They could also be busy with all the tour bus drivers that used to wait at the casino for their geriatic passengers from the Pacific mall.Sort of like this

I didn't see "bus" circuit on the list, but I am sure the off-road circuit would do well for the bus drivers.
