Good looking track Bob. I like the chicane section, but haven't had a home track in 45 years, so don't know how it would work in practice.
There aren't a lot of options for magazines in English: from the US, Model Car Racing, published and edited by Bob Schleicher, and (I think), Scale Auto Racing News, by John Ford (both in e-versions as well). In the UK, there are two brand new magazines, Slot Car Mag and something similar, mostly e-based, but now available in print. The forums also have lots of info for home tracks.
