Well thankfully this year's Green Grand Prix Stage 1 was not an off-road competition. I had no problem staying on the track...
WAIT - WHAT IS THIS!!! Oh look, it's not just that one Sendler: Reviewing this year's footage from Centurion's on-board cameras, clearly the red insights are not suited for the rigors of the Green Grand Prix. Bwah-ha-ha-ha!
