Hi all,

I will be starting my 4th track in a bit and am at the moment brewing up ideas.

The plans are making a routed track and using something like oxigen or scorpius to Digify it.
It will at least be 2 laned Asphalt and will have a single lane looped rally section attached to it.

That means i will have to be able to exit the asphalt and enter the rally lane,
and should have the choice of staying on the rally track doing rounds or choose to change lane and enter the asphalt 2 lane again.

Lot's of ideas just not sure how to accomplish them all yet.
But that's only a matter of time

I will start with a new RallyCrossTrack for one of my friends how is determied to RallyCars.
I will be a copy of a real swedish track , Höljes, on four sheets 750mm x 1200mm of 8mm MDF.
And I will try to lay the asfalt, I use a 2mm thick asfaltboard or papp!! Something u have on the roof as the wery first cower.
Then I will make some another type of surface, pictures is coming, better to explain that way.
Starting tomorrow.

Ok so i need help with a track design...
while looking at possibities....

The plans are making a 3 lane 1:24/1:32 routed track and using something like oxigen or scorpius to Digify it.
It will be 3 laned fast asphalt and will have a 1:32 single lane looped rally section attached to it.

That means i will have to be able to exit the asphalt and enter the rally lane,
and should have the choice of staying on the rally track doing rounds or choose to change lane and enter the asphalt 3 lane again.

Will give the asphalt 3 lane at least one lane changer each lane for Digital mode.

The space i have is 5,35x4,20 Meter i am starting to realize that a fast 1:24 3 lane and a 1:32 Single lane looped rally section may be difficult to realize.

If annybody has some ideas qua track design i am all ears, as i am suffering a "designers(writers)" block

Great minds it seems, see my topic "into the attic"..

We should end up with similar concepts, with 3 uses:-
1. Outside road circuit
2. Rallycross circuit, a mix of road and then onto Rallycross section. Can even build in "Joker laps" where say 1 out of every 5 laps you stay on the tarmac section. Not sure I will go as far as jumps from the World Rallycross series, but it could be possible in the stadium section in front of the pits.. maybe some mini pyrotechnics as well??? (OK maybe a little too far!)
3. Stage rally venue. Many combinations of on road/off road routes where 'coning off' particular crossing points sets a route the driver must follow, the consequence of getting a junction wrong means lost time resetting the car prior to the missed junction.

Thought for your design, most Rallycross events have 2 sections of "off-road", can only fit 1 into mine for the moment...

Best of luck, hope you enjoy the build.

Ian,

That track looks great,
something i would be aiming for, what track is that? anymore info on it?

Very True Zook,

I have raced on Graham's track during the 2010 Mini Mille Miglia,
i stayed over at his wonderful house for a few days and met some great people from the forum in person.
There are some around i was wondering why there are not more around

Jaak,
I don't know any more about it, it was one I remembered as a three lane with nice sweeping bends, I thought of you
