Hi, want to fix track to a board that can be stored in a custom built vertical frame against a wall in a cramped room. Laid out as shown, with an idea of how cars may fling out at the corners as a help for knowing how much space I need for borders. Thinking that railway modellers matting all over would be an idea. People's thoughts on its practicality? I tried to get the best possible mix of enough straights, sweeping corners and tricky hairpins.
New to the forum and hope this link works.

Hope you can make out what's going on in the pic. A few small buildings, incl footbridge I need to make wider. Aim to do a little landscaping, raising a couple of the corners slightly. Can't be anything magnificent as its so cramped. Tightest bit is on the infield where the shallow curve comes close to the short straight, thinking if cars slide out on the curve, keep barrier down the straight only.

In my mind I have a few favourite bits from real circuits, hairpin at end of main straight as the old Daytona Beach North Turn, hairpin from Targa Florio, some curves echoing bits of Bathurst. Could be a mishmash when I eventually add spectators - mix of Sicilian peasants, beer drinking Aussies at the top of the mountain and Nascar fans. (What's the best paint if I want to paint a sandy effect on that first corner?)
Not keen on a bridge/crossover, I think I'll have enough going on elsewhere. Actually writing about this is of course is forcing me to put it all into action!
Need to sort out the mechanism to swing a board up to the wall and hold it in place.
