Default New Indoor Off-Road Electric Track--How big?

Wanting to do an indoor off road track...any ideas how many square feet most indoor tracks need to be? What size is required to host sanctioned races?

Please tell me youre going to do this in Orlando. A good size offroad track is at least 100x75 feet. And that is for 10th scale. If youre going to run 8th scale it would need to be bigger.

My track is about 100'x60' and is JUST large enough for 1/8 and 1/10. The entire building is about 10,000s.f.. This gives me enough room for about 90 pit spots and a small shop. I'd love to have a little more room, but it really could be utilized a bit better.

We have two indoor tracks within 2 hours drive and one is about 105' x 60' ish and the other is probably about 90' x 50' ish and we race 1/8 scale on them all the time!!!! Sure the track is tight but it is still fun!

The larger track is in an 80' x 200' building and the smaller is in a slightly smaller building.

Can't wait to run electric this winter though!

Hope this helps.
