I enjoy stuff like that, but I wish the game designers wouldn't be so cheesy with the speeds they display. 30,000 mph? Give me a break.
That's 500 miles a minute! Doing one lap with real distances would be like circumnavigating the continental US, or at the very least (for a small circuit), like circling Texas!
I can just picture writing a course summary...
Accelerate hard through Virginia, but gently ease off the throttle and swing wide to the left as you descend out of Shenandoah to set up for a nasty chicane the length of Delaware and Maryland... Watch out for the blind turn into Long Island.
