So how does your dream track look like?


I had some time last night and conjured up this baby...

There are some of the tips and tricks I have learned thanks to members on the forum..."You know who you are..." as they say.
The idea is that the left of the track systematically builds up in height and the long straight at the back drops down again into the "Valley"....

....and of course we need a 4 lane pit lane....of course.
I tried to be creative with some R4, R3, R2 and R1 combo's here and there...

Nice track!
Hmmm, I'll have to have a think about my dream track, but definitely lots of dramatic height changes. Kind of a cross between Brands Hatch and a hill climb track. Time to fire up Trackpower...
Cheers,
Richard

Hi Richard,

I love Brands Hatch, especially Paddock Hill Bend, it was an awesome sight when the DTM cars were racing there last year!!

That's for Slot.it Oxigen racing, right? MASSIVE overkill for 6 car digital, though. At that size, 2 lanes will still feel like you're driving alone for most of the race.
But, a dream track is what it is. I don't think I've done a "dream track" yet, so I might have to have a play with that idea later.

I love the overall layout shape and the curves, though.

MrFlippant,

Yeah....it's all a dream....and the budget to do it is also a dream! LOL!
Lotto here I come!!

Thanks for the compliment on the layout, what was suppose to be a 1 hour "got nothing else to do" thing turned into 4 hour "play with TrackPower"...nearly the same effect as "I'm only buying one car this month...."

Designed mine ages ago. It's a 4lane analogue layout based on the Croft circuit in North Yorkshire. I already have all the track to build it. What I lack is space. Something about 10m x 10m is all I ask for


The Original...



My Interpretation...



Failing that, I'd want to build an epic routed single lane rally track that incorporated elements from the most significant rallies, e.g. GB, Finland, Monte Carlo etc. But I have far more ambition and imagination than I do time, funds and talent. Perhaps we should start a Lotto syndicate.

No, I don't know who I am.

Whaa-haa-haa, I knew you were going to say that Graham!
But I did use your "fastest through the curve" trick, not once but TWICE!

That's all I'm asking for as well! 10 by 10 pleeeez....


Stoooo I raced Croft in TOCA Touring Cars and it was one of my favourite tracks, VERY fast.

Strangely enough, I've never actually been there. I spent some years in Middlesbrough at University, and didn't even know it was sitting there 20-30mins away. Sigh. But I love watching the BTCC there. It's always struck me as an almost pure race track. There's a big fast road section, an adequate pit lane, a bit of parking, and it's surrounded by fields. It's not chock full of all the frippery you see springing up around other tracks these days. Turn up, fire it up, and drive it like you stole it. Sure, it may not really be like that in the flesh, but it's the impression I have of it.

A track I *have* driven on that would also be a fun track to build in miniature would be Cadwell Park. But I've yet to figure out how to do justice to the Gooseneck.

When were you racing Touring Cars ?

That's big! I reckon it'll have a lap time in the region of 30 minutes!

Apologies Stooo, should have been a bit more clear about the TOCA racing,
a few years ago there was PC game TOCA Touring Cars, it was quite realistic, even had the smallest of race track details, like dips and small inclines etc, Croft, Snetterton and Brands Hatch was my favourites. REAL racing is far beyond my budget....

OK, you had me, I thought you were John Cleland hanging out here under a pseudonym
