The sinking car at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve

Google Earth shows what seems to be a white car sinking into the asphalt at the first turn of circuit Gilles Villeneuve, Canada. I just hope that no driver needs to take that escape route today! The race starts in 15 minutes… 🙂

Besides that funny detail, great imagery from Google Earth, as usual. What follows are some pictures of the circuit, namely two diagonal views (with and without “atmosphere”) which capture the entire layout, one perspective of the surroundings, and the starting line.

You’ll also find a ZIP of a KMZ file containing a “placemark” that you can import into your GE and observe it yourself.
