Centrifuge view camera
Build a railway circumscribing the track, so a camera or spectator train can go around.
This idea is a refinement of "Centrifuge Racing." While building a giant carousel would have relatively low RPM's and operating expense, it requires probably 10x more capital than a stationary speedway. It would be more feasible to have a camera array traveling about a railway buit to circumscribe the
track, which would run alongside the cars and providing the same experience.
BTW, there already is a camera mounted in the center of the racetrack, but this makes a different cinematic effect.
