The Geography Of Racing
If you watch racing of any sort, there are certain names that spring to mind. Those tracks that you know, and just hearing their name conjures a mental picture of their various features. The corkscrew at Laguna Seca, Eau Rouge at Spa Francorchamps, or Adenauer Forst at Nürburgring. But how good a picture do we really have of all of that geography. Not very, would be my estimation, thanks to this handy map.
That is the Isle of Man TT course. And, inside of it, completely to scale, are the vast majority of the greatest tracks in the world. Click the picture to get the large scale version where you can see what each of them are. For reference, I’ve color coded the Nürburgring in red, Daytona in blue, and Indianapolis in yellow. Crazy, right? The poster is available for purchase at this link.
