Good start,it will be a fast open track.
Looks like you have one of those "boxes" growing on your place too.!
My kids seem to buy them to store furniture etc and forget to take them when they leave.

Unfortunately not my place, I had to build it elsewhere as I don't have a shed. I wanted it to be reasonably open so I can gauge (hopefully) how some of the other and not just Rally cars perform.

That's a familiar looking wee red car in the photos, track looks good too. Well and truly in time for some serious CanAm testing I'm thinking.

You got it, got the timing set up today, the wee red car has new pod, motor wheels, guide, gears, so hopefully will be back and better next year.

A first attempt at a video of my loop. Driving was pretty sedate as there are no barriers up yet and the concrete fllor is pretty unforgiving.

Looking good there aquakiwi. Seems like you can get a bit of pace on up those back straights too. Nice job!
