hy, i,m going to route a track.[my ninco has so many lumps and bumps where the grandkids walk all over it]. the space is 16ft by 6ft 2 lane. i only have 2 criteria, it must have a long straight at the back with 2- 5ft6in outside radius bends on each end of the straight. the middle can be filled with anything as long as the lap lengths are roughly equall. could someone point me in the right direction. thanks. john

Whilst not free form you could layout your basic ideas on Slotman track design software and modify from there. It uses standard commercially available plastic track pieces to design a track and it will give you lane lengths, but if you ask it to equalize usually it puts in a crossover.

It does take a few tries to figure out but if you treat the whole experience as a game? You can put your 6ft x 6ft as a shape and fit track pieces in, it will reverse the corner direction etc., etc.. As you will be routing the gap it calculates between the track ends can be ignored.
