My Track Layout

Recommended Posts

Looks like a good start. How wide is the table? It looks fairly wide - Is it hard to marshal?

 

I like the esses up the back - Nice flow.

I have a few comments about the layout and thought the main staight along the back wall would be better

 

I still want keep the pit lane on the second level

 

Any comments would be helpful

If the section up against the wall is hard to reach, then having a straight section there is better as cars come off more on the technical twisty bits, which will be closer to you. My Monaco layout just runs one long uphill straight at the back, but if you miss the braking point you are off at the end of the straight. Still that's only one difficult to reach marshalling point.

Nice track nd good to see more WA tracks...

 

 

But as a tip...I would arsehole any R1 turns when racing digital (wish I did before I went permanent) and lose the bridge overpass. Bridges just add an element of instability and severe unecessary changes in grade for me as well as dificult points to marshall.... otheriswe, I like turn 1 with the use of the lane change and pit entry and the esses up the back flow nicely.

Thanks for that, I have been messing with another couple options. I'm still going for the tunnels (you can sneek in a lane change that no one knows about. Good for a few laps until they figure it out.

I like that bottom one.

 

I kept my long straight at the back, because only monogram cars come off while going straight. Plus, gives you a better view of the car when at it's fastest as opposed to coming by right under your nose.

 

 

I have a overpass in the middle of my track, tried to keep the turns away from the tunnel, but it's not ideal. The worst place to deslot is at that turn closest to the tunnel. Lines of sight, marshalling access, those are things that never go away, in fact, they start to annoy me more as time goes on.

Thanks for all the replies, I was heading towards the top option myself. I'll have a bit more of a play with it and see.

 

Any ideas on a theme I have plans for a pit lane garage and a tower, but I'm not sure on which way to go.

 

Cheers

 

Merry Xmas to all

Its a subjective thing, like everything else. What style of racing do you like? What sort of cars do you use most? If you race mainly historic cars then there's no point in picking a NASCAR theme for instance. If, like me, you have quite a broad range of motors in your collection, is there a time frame that ties them together? Again, my collection is quite ecclectic so I chose a fantasy theme that has not time frame but rather an attempted sense of place. Again, it all comes down to what you like from your cars and what you want from your track.

 

Most importantly its about having fun.

Hmmm never thought about it like that, I have all sorts of cars from a Peugeot 908 HDI, NASCAR, Ford, Ferrari, Opal, and my latest a L34 Torana. So no real theme with the cars.

 

Maybe I just go with a NASCAR theme around the pits with a country feel around the back.

 

I'd like to see a few pics of what others have done recently.

 

Cheers

If you haven't already done so, have a trawl through the Member track build threads. All sorts of goodies in there for inspiration.
