Garage layout

For about 2 months i have been using my dining room table with a sheet of 8'x4' chipboard on top for my carrera go layouts,i have been using different layouts and buying more track but i have now got to the stage were i feel i need longer straights than 8' and mor elevations/tunnels/scenery etc.......
So this weekend i decided that 2 trips to the tip was needed to empty my garage of rubbish (it was used as a dumping ground after my house renovation projects and i could'nt bear to throw anything away as i new i would need it in the future)but in the end i bit the bullet and now have 12'x24' of space
,i was thinking of cutting the 8'x4' into 4 2'x4' strips and placing 3 end to end with the 4th at an angle like a large L shape.
Would this give me enough width or would 3' be better and a shorter overall lenght?
Any advice appreciated.

Thats a really nice track Phil but as i've got lots of track especially 90 degree bends and i was thinking of a long straight and using the bends on an incline,i'm just unsure about the width as when i cut the board there will be no going back!
Great idea with the castors but as for space in the garage i have 12' width and a workbench on the opposite side which is 3' deep that should give me ample room
(well 9' for layout & frre space),under the layout can be used for storage aswell.
3' width give or take a few inches would give enough room to reach all the track and should give me 2 radius's and 4 sections wide,i will take some photo's when i get home to make it clearer aswell.
Thanks for the input.
