Inside the van is even more impressive. One end looks has computers and two people looking after the track to the north. The other end has computers and people looking after the fast track to the south and the communications/radio announcer sits in the middle so he gets to hear what is happening on both tracks. It is very professional and gives all the entrants and the spectators a feeling of involvement in the event. Something we can aspire to in the years to come.
If you build it, they will come!
