Google Earth Track Image

Looking around this morning in Google Earth for work, i can across some sort of track facility. Anybody know what it is?

29 deg 38 min 34.34 secs N
95 deg 6 min 29.19 secs W

I'd attach image but I cant from work. Looks to be north of a facility called Techemet LLP.

From the looks of the cones that appear to be set up on the rectangular lot I would think it is some sort of training location. Maybe police driver training.

They appear right. Track is 0.5 miles due north of intersection of Red Bluff Road and Genoa Red Bluff Road.

Sorry, I wish I could post pics from work.

We could make it a real time driving academy. Police get to chase minis around the track.

hmmm...who has friends?

i'd be afraid of the "PIT maneuver"...but the thought of a cruiser on the tail could probably help out lap times.

We tried to rent it for training courses. Wouldn't even bother talking to us. They said that City Hall refused to let anyone use it.
