"In Place" Car Racing

They all race on a treadmill that tilts, bends, raises and lowers like a regular course would.

This is a great improvement on a regular race in that:

1- All the action stays right in front of you because although the cars would be driving at a hundred mph plus, the treadmill would be turning in the opposite direction at that same speed.

2- There is no 2.

       Bun. I’ve seen this with toy cars and it’s hilarious. But it looks like a demolition derby sometimes.

       Well then, there's reason number 2.

       <link> to a youtube channel that has lots of toy cars on treadmill races. just scale em up. might be fewer smashups if there are drivers in the cars.

       Engineering the treadmill would be a feat. Also, should a car break down, it will be flung backward at high speed. So you'd still need at least one gravel trap.
