Cool! I like it. I like it a lot!!!
Looks alot of fun to drive! In fact I think I'll try it myself, sometime.
Reminds me of my favourite circuit, Silverstone International.
Good luck with it. I thinks it's (a VERY unusual) winner!
I've always liked that concept for getting a bigger track into a small space.
A couple of thoughts I had when considering this type of layout.
- driving from the middle is going to be a pain, but having the middle open is great for landscaping and accesing all the corners so:
-- consider using all the walls like you have but cut a diagonal straight from one wall to another where your door is. You can then easily have 2 drivers stations, side by side on the outside of the track. Build this section of benchwork as a very narrow span. you will be "ducking under" into the centre to retrieve your offs - or if you're pretty handy, hinge it so you can lift the "bridge" to gain access...
-- the other though was to create a horseshoe layout with drivers stations at the end of each end of the 'C'. The track would have two passes along each wall - one up, one back - cross overs can make this type a pretty decent track, and you still have the center area open if you want.
Just some thoughts...
