this a thread that I have started, to show the progress of my personal 'Drift Track' construction.
I live 3hrs away from Adelaide and own my property. 3hrs is too far to travel and I am not travelling that distance to go drifting every day.
I have a vacant block of land, attached to the rear of my property and I also own that block. It has been getting used for nothing over the past 4 years, so I spoke to my partner about constructing our own 'Drift Track'. She took some persuading, but finally warmed to the idea [providing she can have some garden space in it]. We reached a compromise, rather than having an 'Elevated track' [my first design] we agreed to keep the track flat and make it broad enough for the kids to ride their bikes around on, when I'm not drifting lol.
The area that I have planned for track measures roughly 15mW x 24mL.
Entire length of track??? The track will be constructed with concrete and will finished off [not fully polished] to allow for some grip.
When the track is finished, I will be opening it up to those, that live out near Peterborough and will hopefully hold some small 'RC Drift Comps' here also.
Everyone will be invited to come to my Grand Opening Day, but I don't expect everyone to show up lol. All are welcome to attend my track any time.
Well, here's my latest design.
First image shows the vacant block. Second image shows the basic design and planned size of the track. Keep in mind, that the scale of the track is far from right, but it gives you all a good idea of what I am planning. The scale of the block is exactly as it shows and no mods were made to the original photo. Construction is planned to start in about 1 Week
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK
I'm open to suggestion and constructive feedback, but sarcasm and insults WILL NOT, be tolerated in my thread.
I have measured up the area and it is 14.5mW X 26.7mL. I would like to allow roughly 2m around the sides for walkways etc, so area to be used fro the Track construction will be 10.5mW X 22.7mL. The Track will now be revised and will most likely be a different layout. I would like to keep it basically the same, but it will be changed.
