Round 5 will be at Semaphore Park in Adelaide.

Semaphore Park
Track length - Inside lane - 12.0 metres - Outside lane -12.8 metres
Most of the corner radius are based on ninco track for inner standard and outer track pieces
Longest straight is 2.4metres the others are between 1.0 to 1.2 metres in length.
Lane spacing - 90 mm
Track surface - Routed MDF with Solver roofing paint ( similar in texture to ferrodore) sanded back with a gyprock sanding mesh to give a less abrasive track surface.
Copper tape flush with track surface
Slot depth 6mm ( track board thickness 9mm MDF)
Track Power - Dick Smith 0-30v 5 amp DC Power Supply set at 12 volts.
Tyres- Can't say for sure but MJK grip OK slot it F22 and NSR ultra grips work well
Track Record - TBA (no timed racing to date) I expect that the times for both lanes should be quite similar based on casual racing experience.
Hand Controllers - Drivers Choice
Timing system- SRM with deadstrip sensors
Racing Direction- Clockwise ( right to left at drivers panel)
