Using Slots idea of a track on the back of a door, I decided to have a go at routing a rally track. I had an old cupboard door about 1.2 x 0.6 metres in size and decided to just have a go, free hand of course.

I made a pigs ear of this hairpin :( but decided to carry on any way. It turns out to be a good skill testing corner in either direction.

An overview of the track. No fast straights and a mix of flip flop dog-legs, Scandinavian flick turns, tightening or widening sweepers. It is a hoot in 2 wheel drive. From my memory of the rally proxy cars, the 4 wheel drives on MJK would probably whip round it without effort. 4.9metres in length with a slippery surface.

I'm going to experiment with sand mixed in with the paint for the crooked hairpin just for the novice drivers.

More pictures to follow,
Holty

Good for you, Holty. :( Looks like a fun one and good for slow corner setup. Keep us posted on progress.

Further progress, some landscaping and painting.

I still want to add a few spectator hills and trees yet.

My daughter made some spectators, that is Captain Underpants in the foreground.
It drives OK, every bend is different and interesting even with no elevation variation.
We'll see how it goes when I challenge some visitors to a rally.
