Speed Racer

"The difference between men and boys is the size (and expense) of their toys".

I wandered across the street on Sunday, and noticed a large crowd out in front of the Technomart. On closer inspection, it was racecars! Not real racecars, but radio controlled cars.

The first race was pretty tame. But a later race was really cut-throat. Cars were crashing into each other, rolling over, and there were several complete wipe-outs. Unlike real car racing, apparently doing a couple of barrel rolls doesn't faze these cars. I remember one mini-cooper (car #7) rolled two or three times in the air, landed "feet down" like cat, and just kept on racing. This happened several times in just a few minutes.
