    Woodland Trace Raceway

    Woodland Trace Raceway is a 4-lane mdf circuit with an average lap length of 80 feet. The Trace became operational in January, 2012.

    Except for the Corkscrew (which was built using 3/8" mdf to enable sufficient flex), the track is constructed of 1/2" thick mdf. The width between lanes is 3.5". Luf's lexan routing strip and tape laying tools were used in the track's construction.

    The surface is 3 coats of semi-gloss latex, lightly sanded after each coat. The track surface is smooth to the touch. This track had excellent grip from the first day. We most often run NSR and Slot.It rubber, but also Ninco rubber or Paul Gage urethane for certain classes of cars.

    Power is provided by a Pyramid PS26K 22 Amp unit. There are two electrical taps into the track and the current is supplied to the cars by 7/32" X 1 mil copper tape. We run at 10v and use DiFalco controllers.

    Driver's stations were built by the good folks at Slot Car Corner.

    TrackMate takes care of the race management duties.

    The pit buildings, grandstands, timing tower, bridges, and other trackside accessories are constructed of basswood, balsa, and/or photographic mat board. The cliff face is constructed of acoustic ceiling tile. Trees are made of dead azalea branches with Woodland Scenics foliage glued to them.

    I downloaded .eps image files from brandsoftheworld.com for the signage and used Adobe Illustrator to re-size and in some cases, alter the files. The graphics on the Dunlop bridge were made from scratch based on aerial photos of the 1:1 bridge at Le Mans. I took some liberties in it's design, so it is not a 100% accurate replica.

    Landscaping the track is a never-ending process and I will be posting updated photos as changes are made.

    Currently, the lap record at the Trace is 5.599 sec, set by my Sportsman Mustang pictured immediately below. Modernslots has a Pioneer Mustang that is quicker and he has beaten me and the rest of SCANC at SlotZuka with it by a pretty good margin, but to date that car has not raced at the Trace.

    How many 100% accurate replicas are there but you could have fooled me.
    Beautiful scenery really adds so much realism and thanks for the expo on signage.
    So what lap times are you capable of or do you not record lap times?

        Thanks for the comments guys.

        Bruce, fast lap times are in the low 6s and high 5s. The current lap record is 5.735 sec if I remember correctly.

                      So where are all these tracks? Someone close by might want an invite to visit.

                      By the way, love the Porsche 914. Something I lusted after back in the day.

                        Ed, Woodland Trace Raceway is in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Most of the tracks listed in my footer below are in Winston. Two of them are within a half hour's drive from here.

                              Yes. I love the Ninco classics! Straight out of the box they're excellent runners. All I do to them is oil the bushings. They're not speed demons like some other brands, but they're well matched and as a class they're a lot of fun!
