Here are some pics of my first layout. Lane length is 19 & 19.3 metres. Average lap is about 7.5 seconds using the Aussie V8 Supercars & the quickest was a 6.4 using a Scaley Subaru WRX. Enjoy!!

I still have some small features to tidy up here & there but that all seems to have taken a back seat as all I do now is get out there & race since it is at a raceable stage.
The table was built over the weekend & I put a section down the bottom for my son & his Thomas The Tank Engine layout, although he spends more time racing with dad!

Cheers all,

Lynchy

cool, like it. Do the straights get boring?

Hi Again,

Thanks for the kind words.
The table dimensions are 12 1/2 foot x 6 foot. I wanted to fill the space with as much track as possible. It took 3 attempts but I am happy with the final result. The straights don't get boring as they are just long enough to give it real gut kicking & then time to slow for the corner & whip around sideways!
I put a controller extension for lane 2 so the drivers are on either side of the table, which makes marshalling with 2 people easy. I drilled in some beer holders on each side of the table as well. This was a hard lesson learned as during the build stage, I had a full can of VB sitting on the table & one of my cars launched of the corner & smashed straight into the beer, spilling it over two track sections which I had to replace

Cheers all,

Lynchy...
