^ ^They might have refurbished the track, or it's a clone with new track, because I noticed that the crossties are straight instead of having a "Trench"

^ I don't get it? Loads of coasters have turns into tunnels? Am I missing something here?
No, you're really not missing much. @AshleyScared noticed the resemblance, made the image(which I found to be rather funny), and I posted it here. I understand if you didn't find it as funny as I did.

Anyway, the coaster looks awesome! I'm looking forward to seeing how the ride runs with a lift rather than a launch.

^ Ahh ok haha. The photo of Speed does look quite similar to be fair...
This Vekoma is looking pretty great though!

That corkscrew exit will probably ride brilliantly as this is New Vekoma we're talking about... if it were Old Vekoma, I could understand your worry. But New Vekoma apparently build lovely, smooth rides!

On a side note, how tall is this Vekoma? Is it over 200ft, like a proper hyper coaster? Or is it more like mega-lite coaster height? I'm presuming the latter judging by the sort of scale Formula 1 is, but I just wanted to check.

It's like 100ft.
