I actually love the mix of Orange and Yellow.. . too bad they aren't gonna leave it that way.

the orange looks great, but the "fire" effect you get from both colors is really pretty :)

Do we know they are only painting the track one color? I assumed they were going for a two-tone yellow/red thing.

the yellow looked like the "old" paint.

It'd be fantastic looking if they end up keeping it two color!

The old paint is orange (the entire top of the first photo), looks like the red and yellow are new. Maybe I'm wrong, this is the first I heard it was getting painted at all, but a mix of yellow/red is what it looks like from the photos.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

^ Interesting. At first glance, I also assumed the "yellow" track was just some of the unpainted orange reflecting in the sunlight, but now that you mention it, it does seem as if there's now true yellow track. That would look really cool!

Quite sure that yellow is the primer, pre-orange paint.
