    I always wonder about the paint on race courses. It is so slippery on regular roads, it can easily cause you to break traction, especially in the rain or if you are pulling away from a light and cross the stop bars or cross walk marking. Is it different on tracks?

    I realize that most of the cornering forces are on the outside tires, but the inside tires are working also.....

    Never thought about how slippery the paint is. I suppose it has some sort of non-slip substance in it with it being a racing circuit.
    I have a 1972 Land Rover Series III Truck Cab/Pick-Up and a 1962 Land Rover Series 2a Carawagon Camper.

    It looks like the barrier is carefully designed for cars to skim their wheels on it.

    The armco type barrier has the joints behind (like on a house roof) to avoid damaging the tyres when they touch it as in that slomo. He sure was cutting that fine.

    What a rush to be in the seat.
