A time-lapse of the building of a motocross track at the Millennium Dome, including footage of the race. Preparing the arena, bulldozers dance around with tonnes of dirt getting the central arena ready for a motocross event. Motorbikes are shown jumping over different sized jumps at different speeds, with varying trajectories. The motorbikes also race around the track five times with split timings to see who will win.

Nice clip to accompany work on estimation. Can you estimate the time taken to prepare the arena ? What would be your estimate for a) the first lap time? b) total race time? Work on speed, distance and times would fit quite well following this clip.
