Default Need Info on Carpet-Covering a Dirt Track

We have a outdoor clay track here in Florida, and see a lot of tracks being covered with indoor-outdoor carpeting. It seems like a great idea, and we'd like to contact someone who's done it to find out the best way to get it right. Thanks

This is practiced in the UK a lot where lost of rain causes the tracks to be difficult to keep in good shape. It is mainly done on jumps but if you look around you'll find whole tracks covered in something like astro turf.

Thanks, I've heard that it's the coming thing here in the US, now indoors, but it's a real possibilty for outdoors. Our track is Fl. clay, which is really "barely" clay at all, mostly sand, and very hard to keep in shape. We're looking to solve that problem.
