:thinking: I agree that don't look like turns 3 and 4. Those buildings in the background were never outside 3 and 4. I'm not so sure it's even Williams Grove. Outside turns 3 and 4 have always been a corn field. 1 and 2 had horse stables.

Definately not Port. The track sure looks like the Grove but from the guardrail out it doesn't.

The track, guardrail and outer fence look like the grove turn 3 but the background of chainlink fences, yards and houses and sheds sure doesn't. All that's there now is speedway drive and some cornfields. :thinking:

Williams Grove :thumbright:

The zoom level on the camera has the farm proportionally drawn in also. It sits straight across from your view at that angle.

Check Bing Maps........

If that's true , I never saw a camera that draws things in farther away to make them look much closer than the things in the foreground. It makes sense though , because the tin fence also looks closer to the track than it really is.

I checked the veiw out on Friday night . It's the Grove for sure but that background sure is deceiving.
