Definitely looks like some serious upkeep is needed. But with it being the worlds, I'm sure there will be some sprucing up lol

I'm wondering though, what's all the talk about concrete? It looks like dirt but I could be wrong..

The front straight is definitely cement.

Track does look like fun though.

That looks like they will be racing on an abandoned mini golf course.

I think the phrase we are all looking for is "it has lots of potential".

Could be pretty cool with some maintenance to the infield and some fresh dirt on the track....
