      VERY nicely done! The Monza tower with the Dunlop signage caught my eye. Thanks for the look in! -- Ernie :>)

        Really cool track I like how you have done the scenery and the elevations.
        Do you have an overhead plan of the track at all?

        Inspiration for a future track build.

        cheers

          David,

          I based the circuit on this Adobe illustration I designed, but when it came time to put the router to the mdf, many small changes were made, so this is just a rough guide.

            Here's a video of a few laps around Woodland Trace Raceway. Taken with an iPhone 7 duct taped to a BRM 1/24 scale Porsche 917 chassis running at 6 volts so you can see something of the track as it goes around.

              The downhill section is reminiscent of Laguna Seca corkscrew ;-)

              SlotCat, that's what I was going for. Before I put the router to the mdf I posted several drawings of tracks I was considering. One of the things I wanted was a corkscrew. Then someone suggested why not do a replica of Laguna Seca. I watched many races at Laguna Seca when I lived in California. Problem was that my basement space is so narrow. It's bisected by a stairway that comes down from my living room. So I decided there were key elements that I wanted - The Corkscrew, the rise at Turn 1 and the Andretti Hairpin. So I went with that and ended up with a sort of squashed Laguna Seca. After 9 years, the track is still challenging and fun. We just hosted Round 3 of the GT3 Proxy on it last night. You can see the video of that race on the Slot Car Addicts of NC Facebook page here - https://www.facebook.com/10064191512...6214339211417/

            And a very short slow motion video of cars catching air at T1.

              Thanks Steve

              I really like the elevation changes and scenery. My 2 lane cruising track is Blue Ridge Parkway (posted a thread on here) We don't race on it. Just for running cars. The group I race with we have 7 tracks at the moment (used to have 10) 5 routed and 2 Carrera - though one of the Carrera tracks is changing to routed. Looks like we race similar classes and all.

              cheers

                David, If you are not too far away maybe our groups can meet up for some racing here or there. Road trip! (After Covid, of course.)

              Be a long road trip - boat across the pacific first - but have plans to visit your country in the future - once everyone get this virus sorted
