Default Off-road track soil?

What would you prefer to have for new Off-road track soil?

Requirements from the material are: weather proof, it should handle racing conditions well and naturally it should not damage tires or car mechanics.

The track is mend for electric cars.

Thanks in advance!

I prefer a loamy soil mixed with wood chips that are worked into the track, however this isn't the best surface for rc cars. Works great for nitro! For rc rcars, i believe you need to have some clay mixed in to the soil and the track would need to be compacted rather than just disking it. The wood chips keeps the water from making the track a muddy mess in case of rain. Too much clay makes the track too sticky I feel. I really don't know the exact percentages.
