    To be honest pouring the milk over yourself was NOT a tradition until Wheldon did it. And everyone after him has said “wow, that was dumb, why did I do that?” X) The tradition was to drink the milk. I’m hoping guys will start to realize it’s a baaaaad idea to pour milk on yourself during a hot Indiana summer, haha.

    Oh, and more to topic, this happens all the time. It’s pretty darn common for the podium girls to get sprayed with the champagne. I get the feeling this is someone not familiar with F1 or racing stretching for something to make a headline. I’d ignore it.

    @vmaxmuffin Your link for the current layout and the unusable section link to the same map fwiw.

    Crap, I’m sorry guys! After going over these, it was a tough choice. Some really awesome courses people found up in the mountains. Unfortunately a few people didn’t check to make sure that some of the long trail portions were wide enough for a car. In the end it came down to a close race between Phil’s and Vmax’s. But @vmaxmuffin use of the ski resort struck me as a very cool twist and it goes to him!

    Sorry for the delay, guys. I’ll try and announce a winner later today!

    That’s weird. It showed up fine when I posted it. Now it won’t even record points for me… Well regardless, as I said above, the relevant area is within the state of Colorado which is marked. I only circled a large area in case someone wasn’t sure where the mountains were. So the circled area wasn’t meant as a hard fast “MUST BE IN HERE.” Just know if you’re inside the big rectangle that is Colorado, you’re golden.

    Thanks, Phil! This is the first time I’ve won, actually :D. So I wanted to do something a bit different. Instead of an F1 circuit, your challenge is to design a hill climb run. Since I recently moved to the foot of the Rocky Mountains, your area is anywhere within the state of Colorado among the Rocky Mountain Range. If you’re not familiar with American geography, you can find the relevant area circled here: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6563351

    Rules:
    -Track must be between 4 and 10 miles in length (about 6-16 kilometers)
    -The finish line must be at minimum 800 feet (about 243 meters) higher in elevation than the starting line (gmap pedometer has an elevation map you can turn on and off)
    -Only already-made roads are allowed (private or public) though custom built sections are permitted as long as the total is less than .25 of a mile (.4 kilometers)
    -Using any part of the road along the Pike’s Peak Hill Climb course is not permitted and will automatically disqualify an entry

    Here’s one last twist to help make things interesting and fun: roads do not have to be paved to be counted as roads. If it’s dirt or gravel and wide enough for a car to drive on, it counts (and won’t be considered as part of your “custom built” portion if you have any). I’ll be looking for large elevation changes and courses that provide a challenge for the driver (a straight shot up a hill with no turns won’t get you any points in other words…).

    Have fun!

    Might want to check your map, Sam X). You have what looks like a little add-on that bumps your track up to 557 km ;)

    She’s known as The Iron Maiden. She’s not exactly a weakling by her track record of gutting through injuries…

    GREAT news! She’s long been a favorite of mine.

    Oh snap… I didn’t even think about that. Though the other day I was wondering when Indy Car will give in and allow power steering. It used to seem like a neat machismo bragging point for the series, but the wrist injuries just don’t make it worth it anymore to me. Time for them to get with the times.

    Honda aero philosophy: Is there an open space on the body? Put a bird wing on it!

    My money is on simply creating run-off. That’s been a dangerous corner prone to red flag blockages.

    The iracing Daytona 24 is getting ever closer. Anyone else running with a team? Myself and some friends have our stints planned, car painted, setup dialed in and we’re ready to go.
