First off I better say thanks to the missus for supporting me. She was the one that encouraged me to make a thread about my build because to be honest Id rather be building it than posting on
a forum but hey I guess some of you would like to see it. So lets get on with it.

The design was made on Autocad and was in the making on and off for about a year. I have used artistic license on the layout to fit in with my requirements. i.e. dismantlable and no bigger than 6' x 12'.
I wanted a track with as long a lane as possible and use the ROC format but also be able to have longer races so the lane spacing is 50mm going to 100mm on the straights and 2 passing points.
Lanes are yellow and red
Barrier Blue (which will be routed also and strips of hardboard glued in)
Grass green
Lane lengths are in the top left corner in mm

Progress so far

As you can see I work in a single car garage so logistics is a nightmare.

I dont plan on going too indepth with the build but occasional updates when there is something worth showing, but if you have any questions or comments I will try my best to answer them.

Thanks, Im looking forward to it being finished too, but its a way off yet.

At last I do have some progress to report.

All the white will be grass when finished.
Just a bit of touching up to do and I'll start the next one.

Cheers Slim

Wow, over 2 months since my last post.
As you all can guess progress has been a little slow.
I have been doing little bits as and when I can.
I have very nearly finished all the painting and copper taping.
Will post up photos in the next couple of days of the other 2 painted sections.

Cheers Slim
As promised photos of the other 2 sections taped and painted.

Next job Im doing is the wiring.

I managed to get all the wiring done in a couple of days and decided to put it together.

I gotta say Im really pleased, it works great. My son loves it.

Just got to put the grass on, finish the timing and get some logos printed and it will be done.

Great build you done there

You must be really pleased

Looking very good indeed

I think that more people will be building this kind of track, racing circuits are likely to be club thing.
Yours looks like a nice size, what sort of lap time is there?

Kind regards, Leo
The track looks great and is very neat which makes it look more like a piece of furniture. The motif of the track is probably one of the best for home tracks if one wants to have the track to be as close as possible to the 1-1 counterpart.
Excellent job and an superb inspiration for me and hopefully others. We raced on a similar track at pendle, a single lane version of this track which is a good track to drive
Awesome track, you have worked hard too get it too this stage, I wish I had the room for a track
that size.

Absolutely fantastic, Well Done.

Great to see it going
You have done a great job on this track
Excellent build, and I second the demand for a video!!!
Hi Slim

One minor point, the cars run in the opposite direction at Wembley.

The circuit looks like a beautifully engineered piece of work, you should be very proud of it, we will need videos though once all the grass and logos are sorted.

On the big night, if you are losing you could always force a spin on the last turn and them blame the tyres like Schumacher!

Thanks to all for the kind comments.

@ scuderia_turini. I wired up the timing yesterday. Will be putting the track up this weekend and will post the lap time then.

@ mtucker666. Thanks, I hope it does inspire others. Im just glad I made a contribution to these forums. After all this is where all my inspiration came from.

@ 4.3 ZOOK & dreinecke. I will see what I can do about a video once it is all complete.

@ RacingSnake. I have wired it up so I can run in either direction at the flick of a switch. 2 tracks for the price of one.
