After talking to some teams at a recent event, I discovered there are quite a few people that don't know where a lot of the tracks we race at are located. Like, they did not know what state "Virginia International Raceway" was located in.
So, to help them, I have made a clickable PDF map.


don't click the image Above, because it is not interactive. You have to download the PDF. The first person that emails or messages me saying they can't do anything with the image gets 10 laps.

Yes. Very nice. Are you still working on linking things up once the map takes you to the web site? Coz of course I found an error. :D

Nebraska has a race track?!?!  Who knew?

It is a very fun track to boot!  Think of a flat gingerman or the Brainerd comp course.  Plus, the novice school involves a tour of the track in a modified school bus, which the track owner holds and will attempt to beat his record time around in it.

 

Really happy its back on the schedule.  Also, One Lap was there today, albeit in the pouring rain.

Any prize, if you “de-throne” the track owners time in another modified bus?

I corrected Road Atlanta's new name.
Also, my proofer is away finishing up her Doctorate, which she gets tomorrow!
 

New version updated. 
But if you find errors, please let me know.

You’ll have take that up with George.  I don’t think he’s scared of much so good luck.

This is fantastic.  @Bill Strong, Is it okay to re-post that map on a team webpage?  VERY impressive resume of events.  No other endurance series in the country can come close to what ChampCar is offering, in terms of variety and number of events.  Quite frankly, it is why we chose ChampCar over the others.  Well done!

Now I can see just how far all the other races are from Texas. Sad face. 

 

Nice map though.

How about High Plains in Colorado?  ;)  First class track outside of Denver.  If this track was in the east, it would be considered one of the best tracks in the country.

As you and I have talked about in the past, that is my favorite track I have ever driven.

 

Crazy elevation changes, fast corners, slow corners, long straight, it's got everything.  Awesome track!
