Default Building an 1/8th nitro practice track

We are going to be rebuilding our practice track and we are looking for some idea's for layout and dirt surface. We would like to have a great layout as we don't want to change it up every week. Track size would be 130x90 and that would have to include the pit lane.We have a drivers stand, scoring system, water, electricity and tubes. We have the use of equipment at our disposal for building the track. Would like to hear what most guy's would like to see in a practice track that would help them out in driving.

I like tight turns and good rythem section where you got to time your jumps and elevation changes.

We have the pole barn for that. There are also tables under the drivers stand.

For a practice track I would like to see a good flow to obstacles. But then if you make it tougher and more challenging then you would be prepared for whatever they throw at you.
