If you plan to level the area, then look around online, there are lot's of track pics. When we built one in my buddy's back yard, we kinda used the topography to determine the course. That made it pretty easy, jut go aournd or over the bumps and valleys, then just connect the dots so to speak.

Somebody find that pic of the tracks that have a "Wall Ride" section. That'd be fun...to see the cars basically defy gravity for a second or two...

I wouldn't go that big. It sound's glorious but you'll find it difficult to maintain and building a driver's stand tall enough for a track that size would make practicing by yourself pretty difficult (and the track will be too big to see fromthe ground). 120x65-80 would probably be good. That's plenty big without being too big. You can always start a club and go bigger later...
