If you google rc track design, a link should pop up that leads to an actual track designing website.

Hi

Eastbourne Electric Car Club (UK) have just completed this track we have taken just over a year to complete but we are racing this weekend for the first time.
Check out www.eecc.co.uk you wil be able to see stage by stage the construction that took place. Attached is a pdf of the layout from the CAD drawing that we had done let me know what you think.

Rated as one of the best TC tracks in the UK. Gaps in circuit allow for the following layouts to be used;

The Eastbourne track is owned by the club on our land which helps keep mini motos and stuff off. the track has a 28meter straight and the width is 3 meters.

Technically, WLRC is on council owned land as it's in a public park, but the club had to pay to build it (I think) and maintain it. Because of this and it's proximity to nearby houses it's also electric only.

Can't say to much about what is being planned but if it work's out it's going to be great Very early stage's and it could fall flat on it's face Glen that eastbourne track looks great, hope it goes well for the club. If there is anybody with experiance in building tracks what problems did you come up against and what would you have done differently????

We here are building new asphalt track.
Is there any information about which asphalt "brand" or mark is the best for outdoor race tracks?
I know that every asphalt has own code from which you can find out what ingredients and in which ratio are used.

Plan is to put fresh asphalt at the beginning of May so any information will be kindly appreciated
