I have decided that Gallery Raceway will be an improved version of the old Heany Park International Raceway...

Most corner's will be opened up and the straight that was the over pass will go under.

So long as you are not a screw loose Dave all should turn out alright!

I like this side of the hobby. All the designing, building, scenery etc. Racing is the other half of the fun.

I look forward to your progress.

Almost ready for routing, just asking any opinion's!
Each line is the outside or inside lane except along the front straight (barrier line)

Don't be shy...

If your driver's stations are along the main straight, visibility behind the over pass m ight be a problem when braking for the hairpin. From experience...

I'd straighten out that kink 'over' the return straight, it looks pretty violent....

And I'd go for driver's stations where the young slotter stands!

It's all coming along pretty quickly Dave... the design has been simplified a fair bit from original though... <_<

That's another option so that you won't have to raise the hairpin lead in.

I think your right Dick..doing that solve's 2 problem's i have.. WOOHOO. :D

But create's a visibility prob for the left hander going onto the main straight B)

Have decided to do 105 mm centre's although one lane has measured at 98 mm on the straight <_<
