Shanghai, Motegi, LeMans, and Turkey didn't want to show up on Google Earth. I also tried to get a side view, to show the changes in the land (the drop of the corkscrew at Laguna) but it wasn't obvious as we would hope.

Also, check out the runoff areas on Losail (Qatar). That is a photograph, and it's amazing how clear the contrast is. I wish I could zoom in and still show the whole track. If anyone has or can get Google Earth, I definitely reccomend it. You can see the Losail track from WAY up in the air, it's the only thing out in the middle of the desert. Either way, enjoy bigsmile

Nice.

I found Sepang via GE before, but the last time I tried to find Laguna Seca, the area was all blotchy. You couldn't zoom in at all. :eh:
