“Because honestly, what average married guy’s wife is going to let him put up Yamaha banners in the house?” Linear Edge’s track maps are conceived as an alternative to posters or other childish motorsports enthusiast ephemera, they’re supposed to be something that fits in with the accoutrements of a modern lifestyle. “I think seeing the tracks as lines like the riders do will help the enthusiasts learn each track better and give them a better sense of how dynamic the tracks really are,” says Russell, the guy that makes them.
Each track is CNC milled from laminated birch plywood and formica. All current MotoGP, Formula One, SBK and NASCAR road tracks are currently offered, but Linear Edge can custom make any track or road of your choosing. We’re currently hankering after a map of Laguna to complement our piece of Robin Rhode’s “An Expression Of Joy,” but the girlfriend’s going to have to move her “Sex and the City” poster first.
