Exactly the same except different

I had two days autocrossing this past weekend at the same location (Namao). I've been using a GPS datalogger to record my runs and help me improve. It took a while to get it working right, but the author of the software was very helpful and it's working really well for me now. One of the neat features is the ability to export a run recording to a .gpx (GPS Exchange) file that I can load into Google Earth and Maps. It's interesting to compare different course layouts at the same location. Here are the courses from the past two days overlaid on each other. Saturday's course (dark blue) was run clockwise around the circuit, Sunday's (teal) was run counter-clockwise.

Edit: Well, that's interesting. Embeddable map widget won't show multiple tracks at the same time. Google Maps itself will.
