World Figure-8 Three Hour Enduro Race Is Like Scalextric Only Real

No this isn't the computer generated result of a child's most insane motorsport dreams, this is actually real.

The World Figure-8 3 Hour Enduro sees 28 cars racing like absolute maniacs around a figure of eight track with an exceptionally hairy crossover right in the middle.

The race is held every year at the Indianapolis Speedrome.

And if you're interested, a Mr Ben Tunny won in car number 5 while the record for the most laps ever completed at the event which started in 1977, was 8576 by Doug Grieg.
