Racing, Moldovan Style

 These photos are from last September, but they just got processed.  Moldova has its own car racing league, completely private and supported by local businesses.  Some of the drivers are women, and the courses are all road courses.  The main one for Chisinau is a couple of blocks from our house, and is a main, wide road that gets blocked off for the whole course.  This makes it long and skinny with tight corners - and also makes it so the person who's got the pole position at the beginning of the race is, by far, most likely to win.  They race in heats of three or four cars.  Races start next month!
