Hi Folks,

i´m working on my track and it seems i can finish it in the next few weeks.
After a long planing period i started in April 2011 with the routing.
The result will be a 3 lane track, build with 12mm MDF, each lane with nearly.

The szenerie should be old style, like a desert track with rocks, sand, maybe like Riverside.
But my goal for the next weeks is to drive asap.

Keep on racing
Thomas

Interesting layout

I am curious to see how it works for you.
Looks like a few good opportunities for guard rails and safety walls in your scenery plans!

More pictures welcome

Hi Thomas,

I like your track, good use of space.

Can you tell me the dimensions you have used. Track width and lane spacing - I'm building a two lane track at the moment and it would be good to see how much extra room 3 lanes takes.

Cheers,

Hi Jens,
yes, but i have been very lazy over the summer.
The track got painted in Juli and then i stopped....
But the last weeks i´ve spend some time in the basement.
I have done the copper foil, some eletrical connections and the driver station.
Yesterday evening i finished the additional power connections on the track.
I think i can finish the construction work next weekend, starting driving soon.
But first i have to tune some cars to have some fun!

and the i have to start with the scenery..... ;-) after a visit on you track!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How is your track going on??
Regards
Thomas

The next work will be to tune some cars with new tires and to test some chassis.
Also i will start with the scenery. My idea is to build the landscpae like Riverside Raceway.

Has anybody some good pictures or has anybody build a racetrack in Reiverside-Style????
I need some ideas and impressions!

Regards
Thomas

@ Lasp

the base is about 2,5 x 5m and the track length is aprx. 25meters, but i have to check my CAD-drawing to sure about the length.

@Lasp: You have been here and didnt come for a visit? Südpfalz starts 2km from the place I live!, too. Thomas only lives about 20km away! Next time!

Regards Jens

Btw: Thomas, you can post pictures by clicking your photos in picasa with the right mousetrigger, then goto "Grafikadresse kopieren". After that just chose the "insert picture button" from above the answering sheet and just insert the copied adress into the popup. Its easier for us others to watch your pictures then...

@ Lasp,

I have made some different versions of the drawing with Auto-CAD light to see if the track will be ok for my available place and to my required needs.
And finally i have transferred the drawing handmade to the MDF.
The routing was executed with a long circle for the Router and a Aluminum lath for the straights.

Before I started with the final routing I have made some samples for routing-training and it worked very well with some routing exercise.
I was fun working and to see some progress. The main machine, except the router, have been the vacuum cleaner.....

Best regards and the Pfalz Wine is one of the best ones. Especially the Schorle ;-)

Thomas
