One of the turns on my humble layout reminds me of Craven A at Catalina park, which existed in Katoomba NSW until about 2000. Wondering if anyone has built tributes to any of the lost circuits of Australia? Oran Park, Catalina, King Edward Park, Amaroo, Silverdale, Mount Druitt, Gnoo Blas, and many others? I've seen a video of the Bathurst slot car circuit but not any other Aussie tracks.

Kind of sad that the three tracks I actually competed on in a 1:1 car (club level) no longer exist.

Agree.
I reckon the ‘big’ turn on mine is a bit similar to the sweeper at Oran, but in the reverse direction...
I’ve got half a corkscrew ala Laguna Seca (US) as well.

I had a mate with an Oran Park track. Was a fun track.
The sad part was he moved to Qld and when I asked where the track was he had taken it to the tip....
Would have grabbed it if he had said
