suitable paint for the track

Can someone give me some advice as to what sort of paint to use on my routed mdf track (rally), I don't particularly want to use the 'sandtex' type as I prefer a smooth finish but I will be texturing the surface in certain locations with the addition of sand or similar to try and represent a change in grip (as you would find in the 1:1 version )

Most wood primers work well - I've used them on MDF (special hardwood primer) and my Carrera plastic track (B & Q undercoat-primer) - and they seem pretty robust. Some primers specify they are for 'hard' surfaces and these are the best (i.e. they adhere better to smooth surfaces, rather than expecting to soak in). Any good decorators' shop should be able to point you in the right direction.
