I was looking at the track layouts of all of the Nascar tracks and was noticing that Infineon Raceway looked like a bent and broken guitar.

Then came the thought that if you built a track that was the shape of a Fender Stratocaster it would make a really challenging course with 2 really nice straights and good hairpins along with a big sweeping curve and 4 chicanes. It would be a great F1 layout.

You could call all of the accidents ; Fender benders.

Just so you know : I came up with all this after 13 hrs at work while looking at the last page of the Cat Nascar calender that is on our wall.

I was tired and needed to go home, could you tell ?

Interesting thought for sure. Now all you gotta do is find some sponsors, locate a good property, and make it happen!

There was an article on a new track being constructed somewhere in Mid east country in Racecar Engineering a couple of months ago. It looked like a really fun track.

Autocross courses have odd shapes from time to time, lots cheaper too! :)
