You know what would be awesome is if you can fit a HUGE tabletop in one of your long straights. Somewhat like the 2008 manufacturers cup. It was huge..Very Awesome Race too. It would just be something to put in the mix.

this is what our layout will be like. where it says 90ft is where the drivers stand will be.



and this is where the track will be.

I notice you have a lot of straight-aways, if you can incorporate a few turns in them (ssss's or zig-zags) it will help your skill improve.

You should make that hairpin turn in the middle of the track a bigtable top so when you just wan to mess around and get some air you just go straight over the whole thing instead of taking the whole thing but thats just my honest opinion i think it will be great how ever you make it and how wide are the lanes going to be?
