Hi All

looking for ideas as to power a portable track as some venues do not have 240v supplies,

generator ?

Car Batterys ?

Plug in to van ?

It would need to run for 8hrs with possible 15min breaks inbetween

Cheers Tony

Car battery and solar panels...

...or a hamster running around a wheel

Save the planet

If you plugged it into a van for 8 hours that van wouldn't be taking you home afterwards. A generator running for 8 hours is a whole load of energy and fuel pollution for nothing other than flinging a few cars around a track. The kids racing would breathe in so much rubbish, you'd have to take them hosital in your van afterwards.

Maplin Electronics for solar panels, OK?

Tesco for the hamster

I'll say again, go for solar panels !

Get to Maplin Electronics and ask about the common sense confusion that you need sunlight for modern panels to work. You can charge up batteries in advance and save a load of cash and a load of pollution. They last for years and nothing can go wrong, either.
