Default Track layout ideas

With on road it is easy to setup a track for an afternoon of driving. I thought it might be cool to have a thread for people to share drawings of track layouts they have done for others to try.

I will start with two I have.

This was for a local cement pad that measured 140'x38'

This is for a large parking lot. The track has a 110' straight.

I just went to Walmart and bought a box of sidewalk chalk. I measure out and mark the track with the chalk. I use a string marked off at various radius measurements to draw out the corners. Just anchor the string at the center then hold the chalk at the 10' mark on the string and draw your curve. Then hold the chalk at the 20' mark and draw another line. This will give you a ten foot wide corner with a 10' turning radius. The best part about the chalk if you keep going back over a few days and it has not rained you spend 10 minutes freshening up some of the lines and after awhile you have a very well marked out track. Then it rains and you get to try a new layout.
You know the guy that beat you at the last race? It was not because of his car, or motor, or battery, it is because he was a better driver. Now go practice so you can beat him.
