I'm including an image of a track I'm considering building. I'm new to track layouts, so would appreciate feedback as to potential problems, etc.

According to Tracker 2000, the track lanes are 75.6' and 77.4'.

Thanks in advance.

Randy,

I like it, but just a few comments...

Is this going up against a wall? If so, it is very wide, and thinking the back part has two tunnels and a crossover lane may be problematic for getting cars that crash back on the track.

Other than that, looks fun!

Thanks. Yes, it is going up against the wall. I see your point - it would make it difficult to re-slot cars.

I'll re-work the layout and try to ut the turns toward the front and sides.

Thanks.

Good variety of curves but too many levels in elevation. You will have a hard time supporting this track for the bridges and getting the deslotted cars under this spiderweb of bridges will be hard.

Aim for one (or two at most) bridge that gets the two lanes at equal length.

To facilitate getting to the deslotted cars, think about a L-shape table.

Definite Wow!
The only problem I can see is that you've got your elevation changes in one corner. Depending on where your driver's station is, you may find that bridges etc block your sight of parts of the track, especially if yoou build the track on tables.
Looks a real challenge though. Let us know how you get on.

If on the front straight the cars go from right to left, then you have 3 potential problems where cars will de-slot at the ends of straight sections. and each of those areas are difficult to reach. A de-slot at the end of a straight tends to send the car off the track in the direction it was travelling - obvious, but true. You need to get to the cars easily.
