My current (plastic) digital track is about that length, and if anything, two lanes are too many. As pointed out above, the cars get really spread out, and it often takes a looong time to come up on traffic. My next (two lane) track is going to be considerably shorter.

There's nothing wrong with a track that size, and I really enjoy it for just running laps or chasing down ghost cars. But if you want exciting digital racing with multiple human driven cars- it's a little too long.

If you really want a third lane, I'd recommend you make it for only a section of track. I'd also have lane 3 split from lane 2, and then have lane 1 merge with lane 2 at the end- if that makes any sense. On the right section of track, it could make all 3 lanes a viable option...

Most of us aren't that good at being that equal.

In my analog club, there are often a pair of cars/drivers in each heat (most of our tracks are 4-lane wood) that run fairly close together. Rarely are all four evenly matched.

When we race digital, it is often with a set of similar cars prepped by the same guy- so the racing has the chance to be closer. But that also means one off and your a loooong time catching back up to the pack.
