Camber Valley Speedway

Recommended Posts

My home track build.

 

3 Lanes

100 foot lane lengths all within a couple of cm's of each other.

115mm lane spacing

Digital and analogue with live flippers in both entry and exit.

900mm lane changes on main straight and 700mm on back sections for full speed lane changing.

Table length 8m and varying widths, 3m at widest.

All but 2 corners have differing amounts of camber, no two corners the same.

The JD branding on the grass looks fantastic Cam. It's a great looking track. No doubt about it.


Computers. They'll never catch on.

The whole lot looks fantastic Cam!!! How did you do the Jack Daniels on the grass... Stencil and airbrush?

 

Your track provides a lot of inspiration.

Great looking track Cam. Great pics right from the start, well done!

Looks like you use "goo" on the tyres, due to the marks in the racing line?

What paint have you used for the track surface?

I'm guessing the tyre marks is from airbrushing

It could be from running foam tyres, on the 1/24 cars a little shellite to clean them and then a couple of thousands of laps and you get a nice build up of tyre marks

Thanks for the kind words.

Yeh, airbrush and vinyl stencil

Like Chris mentioned we have an enduro next weekend you are welcome to attend.

We have regular race nights, will let you know.

No goo, black race line marks are from the tyres.

Paint is semi gloss enamel.
