My First Track Nepean Valley Raceway

Recommended Posts

It's coming along quite well Greg . Whats the race surface .

Craig

 

It will be Schuey Coat Craig. Black chalkboard paint I think ine coat no undercoat for better grip. Am I right Schuey?

 

Mine is undercoated Vince. Only because it was originally interior acryllic wall paint (that had no undercoat) and then I resurfaced with two coats of chalkboard rolled straight over the top. I have found the grip to be very consistent, except when it hasn't been used for a bit, then there is a fine layer of dust. I either wipe it down, or just drive a bash car for a few laps to get a clean line. Greg was over on Sun arvo and you can see the lines on white and yellow lane which were the only ones we used.

 

Oh yeah, it looks good Greg sheppard24.gif

Once again it’s time for an update (because Schuey said I had to) :P

 

Spent the last two days fencing the layout, putting in some crash barriers and doing some bridge work. I was wondering around Bunning trying to find material to use (does anyone else do this or am I just weird?) and found this 50mm plastic strip which looked good for concrete barriers. I routed a 6mm slot 6mm deep in the shape I needed and tapped them in position.

Also used it on the overhead sections. I think it looks good.

I was doing exactly that on the weekend looking for exactly what you found, but didn't find it. What section of Bunnings did you find it?

 

Cheers

On Saturday night the first cars ran on my layout. First impressions are it's technical. The acent to the bridge causes the car to light before the left hander. The decent to the S bend can also catch you our.

 

Wiring the layout was fun. Being able to split the layout and having it on a steel frame meant we could tip it to run the wires.

Next step the pit entry flippers.

That's starting to look like race time. When's the first race? Really looks nice.

Having a track that can split in two and on wheels is very convenient

Hope you like it.
