As cool as they look, I dont see a huge market for them. Oval racing isn't very big in America.

Looks like they are just using a bicycle velodrome as a track, I don't think it was built just for this type of RC Racing.

Have another look guys there's only 11 batt's in that picture.

Can you imagine tyre wear, it would be atrocious.

I still see 12, 4 on the back end, and 8 on top, the battery is in a T shape.

I think you're right Steevo, that's a velodrome. The cars look like the Tamiya Tyrrell P34 6 wheelers, and they sell the conversion kit for those that have the basic F103/2 kits. The bodies look pretty awesome, I would like to check out a video clip of them in action.
