Signage Notification

This is a fine example of the signage being considered as the HL88 Manufactory standard for all Cosmodromes in the Western Hemisphere.  It would have to be adjusted to fit the specific configurations of the individual cosmodromes. One thing is certain, any carpet must be removed so the full effect of paint on hardwood can be realized.

All Aboard!

Three dollars seems like a super deal to witness an atomic bomb exploding. Who doesn't want to see an atom split to smithereens?

Cosmodrome Welcomes New Technician

Happy Lucky 88 Manufactory has developed a prototype technical technician labour saving device aptly named Mr. Atomic.  Mr. Atomic will replace human bike mechanics in an effort to facilitate faster and more accurate mechanical support under race conditions and suring downtimes at the cosmodrome.  Mr. Atomic is greatly anticipated at the WORC (Western Oceanographic Research Cosmodrome) after Lampo Bianco was forced to let his staff of forest dwarfs go due to insubordination. 
There is absolutely no back talk from Mr. Atomic.  Simply program the type of repair desired and Mr. Atomic will work and think like an automaton.
