  1. Been there done that. Las Vegas track. Was OK, but I have been faster on the short tracks I race on with my own cars. Could have been better, but the tree car follow the leader format depended on all three cars in close formation. I was behind the leader (one of the hired instructors) the third car was behind me…. Way behind me… Because he never pulled up close, the leader never got us rolling.
