Nice! Unique look with the single support poles on either side.

The start sequence lights look great. I'm working on my start/finish gantry too, should have it done soon..

The corner pictured has given me the shits for a while now, the pit lane flipper are on the corner and cars are unsettled mid corner as they cross them, so time for a change. supplies have arrived and work (making a mess) has started. thought it would be relatively easy to do, but turned out much more work than expected! Here's progress shots

well for some reason the new braid sat too low (approx 5mm) in the existing recess, so I've had to bog the whole track and route a new recess, I was a bit worried the bog might shatter as the router cut through, but is coming up nicely so far

 

bogged ready to be worked

sanded read to route with centre lane started

Great looking track you got there Shane. I like the hump and banked corners and the pits. Totally awesome.

bloody oath mate, I have a "good" idea for the pits (well I think it's good, if it works...) I'll give it a week for the tape to bond properly, it's very sticky to handle, so should hold the braid (hope) no day off til next tuesday anyway

Main thing with the tape is that you press the back of it firmly after laying, I've use the butt end of a screwdriver, a bic lighter, etc.

 

But I've never waited a week, I've waited between an hour to "as soon as I can get to it"

 

Never had it lift.
