I saw in another thread where someone suggested we make a map of the track locations and approximate team locations. I thought this was a great idea that could come in handy in all sorts of situations, so I made one. I've only added the California tracks and my team's (approximate, don't want any of you showing up at my door unannouced) address.

 

The old map died, so here's a new one on Google.

Instructions for adding yourself:

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Click this link: http://j.mp/1Hf0LM4

 

 

2. Hover over "additions" in the menu

 

 

3. Click "Add Marker - Simple"

 

 

4. Put your team name in the "Entry Name" bar and put some basic contact info in the details sections. I'd suggest at a minimum your forum name. You could also throw in your car make/model if you like, or any expertise you have. Basically anything that you think could be useful, add there. You can set a location by clicking on the map or typing in an address. I think a town/state plays well with the map application.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I know I don't even have to ask for questions or suggestions. Those are pretty free-flowing around here.  :)

Done.  Added BIR and our team.  See if anyone gets the joke...

 

 

Google makes it easy to check addresses ...     You should really try to get a sponsorship from Surly.   In fact, dump those Frozen Rotor guys,  who needs free brake pads when you can have free beer...

Man thats really cool, but the map is so frustrating since mouse-wheel does not zoom

ctrl-mousewheel zooms fine.      Oops,    it only does the normal webpage zooming and makes the fonts tiny and huge.

Yeah that annoyed me a bit too. It only takes a click or two on the zoom bar to get in pretty close though. This was the friendliest service I've found in terms of not needing accounts/permissions and ease of use.

I added Nelson Ledges and Mid-Ohio in an alternate color with hopes we race there in the future. Edit as necessary.


How about adding part stores and junkyards near race tracks?

Not a bad idea. Is there a way to add layers or filters to the map? That would be pretty slick
