How would you like to marshal the hillside turn in this vid?

I ran a track this year that had a dukes of hazard jump over a racing lane. Great crashes.
We have a crossover at the track here (Indy) it isn't bad as long as nobody just "rolls" the jump.

That track in the video just plain sucks. I wouldn't want to drive it OR marshall it. (and there are some non-driving fools in that video too...)

There's enough astroturf to play putt-putt on that track.

Holy crap that guy on the hill is workin his butt off.

Looked like he was about to roll a couple times. That track is for knuckle heads.

1st video, interesting idea, but horribly executed. Just as bad as their triangle shaped jumps. I don't understand how some tracks continue to make those jumps, but that's another topic. If I were to make a good loop, it would be at least 10' high, 12' wide and smooth so the cars don't bottom out.

The first video had a horrible track design. Super narrow lanes, a curb right after a huge jump, a small loop that doesn't even let a 1/8th scale got thru and a tunnel with a nice blind spot. Marshall's must hate that track

The second video was just plain stupid. Who decides to put a HUGE hill were cars end up tumbling and marshalls losing 5 pounds after getting a car in the field somewhere. It must be a nightmare mashalling there.

Should play mini putt instead on all that astro turff.

Looks pretty stupid and none of them seemed to manage it to well. Maybe the next layout they will have a brick wall in the middle of the lane.
Better yet a 75 foot double with a pond in the center if you dont make it.

You need a broom stick and a running start to marshal anything up there.
