First one was something to play with in between the real tracks.

Then after I sold my old track I needed a replacement one, what do you think of this one?

And then a club friend decided he needed a track as well.

And then just for fun I built this one and put it up on ebay.

Braid? Yes, but it's getting too hard to find and toooo expensive, and tape works just as well, in my opinion anyway.
To braid a track can cost over $400, and to tape the same track would cost only $12.

you find they are getting easier to build ?? i've done 2 with tape and one with braid, apart from the braid being costly its the best thing ive done :) heat in the shed doesn't expand it, no breaks etc etc :)

Yeah, they are getting to be like riding a bike, easier every time.
I find that once you get into a rythem, it all falls into place.
I haven't had any problems with the tape, and it's easy and cost effective.

It's all finnished and Ross picked it up yesturday.
It might look a lot like the one that went to Melbourne, but it is subtlely different.
I tried a few new build styles on this one, and it makes for a much neeter fit and finish.

Once again, very nice there Andrew...
Is that the same layout as Alvaro's but with the bridge the other way?? Looks better that way to me...

Also, looks like you made a 2 lane track and then changed your mind and made Ross a 3 lane one instead...

Yeah Michael, I like to test my build ideas on the smaller tracks, and then use what I learn on the bigger ones.
Ross wanted a bigger track to start with, can't have a decent race on 2 lanes now can you?
That 2 laner is going cheap, get in quick before it's gone ;)
