Committed racing fans
I hope they cancel the race. It’s a stupid track from T4 on, it just meanders until one of the straights. Too many 1st gear turns and it’s all freakin’ desert, so featureless. I know, I’ve raced there in online races (RACE 07). I hate it. The track from a few years ago was OK, though.

They didn’t hold races in the communist bloc during the cold war.
