If that driver's stand were in the US the handicap ramp would be so long it would have to wrap around the mountain.

Lots. I've been drooling over the euro tracks on youtube lately... Why can't we have something like this here??? Here's one with big scale cars. So cool...

Wow, it would be worth spending a vacation week there. Now, if only that damned money tree I planted several years ago would begin to show some hope!

I wonder how it is possible for a track like that to be financially viable. Either the races fees must be very high, they sell advertising space for a fortune, they get help from the government, or they've got hundreds and hundreds or races there every week.

Or the owner is rich and just likes to make his own dreams come true. Then uses the places as a write off?

But looking at some of the videos, there are a large amount of people there.
