Default Dots on European tracks

I watch and follow most of the races around the world. In Europe and other international races use dots to create the sweeping turns around the track. I have been looking for a while to try and find out what brand they are using and how they are attaching them to the carpet. Can someone from across the pond please give us some insight into what you are using to create sweeping and flowing tracks that seem to be very car and tire friendly?

Also how they are attaching them is almost as important. After looking at the pictures from the European race of the weekend they seem to be attached without the use of tape on the outside. What magic are they using to keep them down?

Thanks

If you use plow dots, they hold them self down for the most part.

Eagle racing make dots that are very similar to the ones they use on the euro indoor tracks.

It looks like they just use gaffa tape to hold them down
