curlacious

Don’t look at me. I’m irrelevant.

Doubt it , expect it will be the much larger car parking area under West, North & East stands but it may be the south
The press release says it's under the south stand. I'm sure they'll squeeze it all in somehow.

Can't stand to watch Formula 1 but sports car racing/karting is a great day out so I think this is very exciting - and if it's another revenue stream then that should translate to more funds available for players more sticks to beat Levy with.


Gotta say this part of the press release made me spit my coffee all over my keyboard:

"With music concerts, boxing and rugby now also being staged in London N17, it means an estimated 5.9billion people globally are interested in events held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium - equating to nearly 80% of the world’s population."

Yes - I saw that too. What a ridiculous sentence.

If we don't hold chariot races on it like in Ben Hur with Levy and the Arsenal chairman whipping at each other as their wheels interlock approaching the turn then what's the fucking point.

I think Mario Kart is more Levy's size. ?

I stand corrected , being under the south assume you would be able to view the whole track from a spectator viewpoint and when you think how much track you could fit onto the size of a football pitch it's going to be pretty big.
Levy did say in that documentary on building the stadium that big announcements were coming in the next few months

I mean it just brings more to the whole place. Turn up a few more hours ahead of the football crowd, have a race, grab some food inside, walk around the roof, come back down, have a beer, watch the football.

Will be interesting to see how the logistics work of moving the track when the pitch needs to be stored under the South Stand and how Spectators will be accommodated.

My guess would be in the car park area where the pitch goes. It wouldn't be active when there was an event and the pitch was stached.

Indoor kart tracks generally only need a flat area and they arrange the barriers to create a twisty circuit. There was a really good one down near Kings Cross which used electric karts. I got pole there in a special event once. :)

All sounds exciting. Errrr, with maybe the exception of the football.

Just need them to finish the Cheese Room and I'll happily stay there the whole weekend.

Commercially, ENIC and Levy are incredible, arguably the best in Football considering everything has been achieved organically and without on pitch success. Man u are better but that is because of the insane amount of glory hunters obtained by winning trophies.
