Default RC Tracks with Google Maps.

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UT...,28.608398&z=5

this is a google map i started with tracks that i could find and whatever info i could gather. i am posting it in hopes it gets stickied, and i left it open to collaborators so anyone, especially owners, could pin their location with times, classes, rules, and all pertinent information. this is open to all states and countries.

it would be nice to have one goto source for this info and be able to find nearby tracks when you travel.

thanks to the guys that have contributed. to the viewers, even if you each add just one track it would help, lets keep this growing. the more this grows the less threads in the forum needed to ask the question "where's the nearest track to __________?", and it might get new people to show up to tracks..

weird... i logged on just now to start a thread like this and there's already one.

i saw that your map is open collaboration but i can't remember my google account name. anyway, here's a track location that my friend from Barcelona Spain sent me: 4126'52.70"N 211'44.05"E. sorry i don't know the name of the track.

here's another one from Taiwan. the track name is "GTR" 23 9'33.56"N 12014'19.27"E

added altoona, to add placemarks, click edit in the left column close to the map. then placemarks, and couple other icons show up. either click on the placemark in top left of map and drag, or right click and add placemark, then put info in balloon. thanks for contributing.

ps HEY MODS, can i crosspost this thread to other forums, especially race forum, regional forums and internatonal forums?
