"Digital" magracing

I am wanting to create a system for magracing ( mr ) that will be very similar to the digital slot car systems on the market. So I am asking just how can I accomplish this?

Controlling System:

PC or Arduino?
I am thinking pc. Much faster.
This is where I am overwhelmed. Been reading as much as I can about making programs. Hopefully I will get the much assistance form the great people here on this forum.

Track Set Up:
This seems fairly strait forward. IR's placed throughout the track ran into a Digital I/O Interface linked to a pc

So what do you think?

Yes the pro micro is the one I have just taken delivery of. It looks ideal for a slot car.
If you do a kickstarter search for "arduino wireless" lots of others pop up. Many are bluetooth.

I'll start a new thread today to publish my progress.
