A Few Tracks I Have Built Recently

Recommended Posts

Well I made the legs.

They are on hinges and fold up under the track, as do the supports.

Those legs should work well...

 

I believe that Craig (?TeamRedRacing?) uses the same system on his big track...

HI Guys

It's been a while since I've posted any tracks, so here goes.

This will be a new addition to the Bonogan valley raceway.

This is a test track for a friend in Port macquarie.

And this one is on it's way to Melbourne for another forum member.

 

All 3 are braid, who said I don't do braided tracks?

 

Cheers

Andrew

Thanks Andrew

 

The guys at BVR are ready and waiting. We will be installing 2 different timing systems to cover the different groups that race here in SEQ and what they're used to. All racing will be non-magnet...

 

The BVR track is due to arrive on the Gold Coast about Oct 4. Racing should commence November. :ph34r:

This is my track with some scenery, Andrew routed for me then I painted, braided and constructed it

I don't think Andrew has seen it finished & the scenery was done by my 4yr old son with the wife

 

Great tracks at great prices highly recommend Andrew to build great quality tracks

 

Thanks again Andrew,

Ps, I just hosted a round of the NZ grp5 proxy and the track was awesome, technically fast and great side by side racing

Hi Rosko

Yeah it looks great, I like the scenery make a difference doesn't it?

I'm glad you like the track, but I can't take all the credit, after all it's your design.

Cheers

Andrew

Here's the latest track Andrew built.

To say it's well built is like saying Bugatti build a nice car. The professionalism shown by Andrew in building this track needs to be seen to be believed. Almost makes me proud to call him my brother.

 

Almost.......... ;)

May the downforce be with you.

I decided it was time for a new track for myself, what do you think of this one?

 

20170313_180230_zpsln0hj4gs.jpg

 

I made a fish bone frame so I could lift it out of the way when I need the space, like when I build track.

 

20170313_182003_zps3em9dktl.jpg

 

I have mounted all the power, sound and timing to the under side of the track, so it stays put when I lift it.

I'm still waiting for Mr Slotcar to open up his shop so I can get some more braid to finish it off, but so far I like it.

Love your passion and track building skills. One thing I can hear distantly at meets where your tracks are used is : "under the bridge - call button".

 

The long crossover straight needs to go underneath the tight corner sections, as marshalling is normally not needed on the straight.

There is a simple answer to that, learn to drive better and don't crash :) :)

Haven't needed a track call button so far on Andrew's tracks. This design is meant to be challenging as a Club race track though, not a kids track. Actual reach for the Marshall is pretty good too, with these recent tracks needing only two - three marshalls total. Means we can race with a small group, especially in the dead of winter when it gets really cold...

Cool track Andrew & I love that roof solution. If my wife makes us move house I think that is a great solution for a house without a cave...


They are only toys .... until you pull the trigger.

There is always going to be that one racer who keeps crashing and stuffs up races.

 

Track design needs to consider ease of marshalling, a simple change from over to under is a simple fix.
