  • Mugello

    With the F1 circus travelling to Mugello this weekend, I am pretty excited...not so much in terms of who may win the race.... but to see a live race on a track that I designed my own routed track from.

    Back in 2007 I built my own version of of Mugello, with a bit of artistic license, to mimic the fast, sinewy circuit. I've been very pleased with the track as it lived up to the hype of a fast, flowing track.

    So finally get see what F1 looks like on my home track LOL

    A few pics of my interpretation....

          Agreed, very nice looking layout, what's the table dimensions and running meters of track?

Lane spacing is the same as Scalextric (3”) with 5-5.5” for the outside apron and 3” for inner apron.

            Great track Tom

            I just watched F1 practice 3 on this track and it is AMAZING, the speed and flow together with the elevation changes makes me really looking forward to the weekend's Tuscany GP, what a fantastic setting!

              Agree. It’ll be nice to see a new track, plus tire deg issue with the abrasive grip surface that could add some spice to the race.

              Glad to see your still running on Mugello. Have always like the flow of your track. Just watched qualifying for the f1 very cool track glad it’s was on the schedule. Your track was one of the tracks that inspired to build my own. Cheers🏁🏁🏁👍

                    Looking forward to watching the race this AM. I saw some of the practice yesterday what beautiful track. I can see why you were inspired to build a slot car version. Great job, and looks like a fun track to race on.

                        That is certainly a very cool looking track although I think I would find it extremely challenging as my coordination and finger control on the trigger is only about 75%.

                          Just finished watching today’s race. Who knew there would be 2 red flags? But I’m glad there was some passing with all the high speed corners. Cool to see the F1 cars flat out through the Arribiata’s. All 3 of my kids actually sat to watch the race to see the 1:1 in action. The real thing inspired my youngest daughter to run some laps with me afterwards 👍🏻
