Plenty of people race on ovals (especially popular with our cousins across the pond). It's certainly an easy set-up to recreate. Whether they are fun or not is all down to your own tastes and preferences.
I prefer more than four corners in my racing so it holds absolutley no appeal for me at all, but there are others who no doubt will love em.
As I recall you were after a layout idea for a 9x4 foot space using Carrera track from the figure 8 lemans sets? Well Carrera's track planner only handles metric so I converted the dimensions and here's a plan. The lanes are quite equal in length (about a metre different) but it might be fun.
If you don't like it then let me know, it's your layout after all
I have found that ovals are a lot of fun to race on, but they quickly become boring when you run on them by yourself. I race on one track that is a "squared circle", like Indy, that has an infield section that is optional. Making the track convertable just increases your options
