    This is the 4th iteration of the Palmer Divide Raceway - aptly named as I live on the Palmer Divide in Colorado. This version is an homage to Riverside International Raceway (RIR), but borrows elements from my area and the now-defunct Continental Divide Raceway in Castle Rock, Colorado.

    It is hand-routed, 20 feet long and 7 feet wide at the top. Copper tape with 1 power supply per lane. Interior latex satin paint on the surface, and an IR timing setup running Race Coordinator software for timing. I really love the fuel option it has.

    Lot's of landscaping completed, many resin and 3D-printed figures I've done and painted as well. I've used grandstands from Magnetic Racing and all the other structures are scratch-built.

    I've really enjoyed this track build and am very happy with how it performs.

          Hey David! Missed you lately. Are you doing okay? I still have your 1/32nd figure of me (uncanny), sitting by my computer, safely stashed until the decks are clear for me to detail a self-portrait. Its going to be a feature of my renovated track, along with the 1/32nd scale airplane (my favorite), the beer joint/brothel/BBQ joint, the pelicans and the alligators, not to mention the shrimp boats and pirogues.

              I'm alive, thanks. You haven't painted mini-me yet? Slacker!

                Still good Dave. I couldn't access the pictures in your post, only the one shot of the track from the end. Anybody else have any trouble?

                      Another very nice track. Your tracks have been a lot of inspiration for me when doing mine. Really like the stories your little people portray. Keep up the good work. 👍
