in anticpation of adding altitude and possibly other info, i created the new track facts section on each page, moving the TimeZone there (from track office, where it was always kind of an odd placement.) for a couple of the canadian tracks, altitude is now present.
the question that comes to mind is what other data might be good to put in track facts. track surface? width? banking? length? how should i present this data for multi use complexes like Las Vegas Motor Speedway or Memphis Motorsports Park? this needs to be thought about because i intend sometime before the end of the year to migrate the data into a relational database, so it needs to be organized sensibly.
for that matter, how detailed does track surface need to be? fairly detailed? dirt is different from red clay is different from black gumbo, for example? what about paved dragstrips? concrete vs asphalt? part one vs part another? there are oddities; for example, the long defunct Jungle Park track had dirt corners and paved straights -- but then, this is a very weird case and maybe i don't need to hurt myself trying to represent it.
