With all the heavy weather over the last few days in Gauteng, I've been watching the FR24 radar pic. Lots of diversions and lots of en-route holding going on.
However I notice that many en-route holds seem to take place on no particular heading. Many are done on a right-hand racetrack on 360 but many appear to be on pretty random headings.
Isn't the correct procedure, when requested by ATC to hold en-route, to hold in a RH racetrack on 360??

then also the weather dictates how the hold looks, to stay clear of the weather
that is the practical experience I have had before, no time to consider the "theoretical" enroute holding
