spot of land which has water 5ft down. that should not be a problem once the right methods are used . i.e. using boulders at the bottom then compacting and come up.

Check out Jackson Rc Raceway over in NJ..

http://www.jacksonrcracing.com/onroadpics.htm

Should give you a general idea of how they constructed their track.
