The "tracks" the Heat and Wind packets create/follow are clearly visible in many photos. One of the clearest examples in which they are prominent is in the outermost Ring in the Cowdown "MeanderRings" Formation (England '95)

I've studied the lay sequencing of complex Formations and have discovered that all contiguous segments of a Pattern are laid simultaneously. The associated but separate parts of the Formation are most probably laid at the same time. The split-second timing which creates these magnificent Patterns must indeed be awesome to behold in process!
