Default Drivers stand question ??

Hey folks, need your input. I'm ready to build a drivers stand and I could use your advice. I had intended on building a 2 level stand vs. the usual single level...but now I'm having second thoughts. We are working with a 16ft x 6ft dual axle trailer as the base for the stand. The track will be 125ft(variable) x 50ft wide.
What kind of design do you folks have or prefer??? For pics of the 2 level trailer, go to www.msra-racing.com/
Thanks

From personal experience, I don't like a two level stand. It's too distracting to have a driver in front of you and when you're in the front row, its sucks to get whacked in the back of the head with an antenna during a race. A 24' drivers' stand is best, plenty of room for 10 drivers.

I like single level stands best. Also that way the drivers get a more equal view on the track too.

Single Tier. I tend to sway or rock side to side when driving. That would be real distracting for someone standing behind me.

I drive on the MSRA driver stand and it's not that bad. I've never been smacked in the back of the head by an antenna. Also it's a bit of an inscentive to be ready early to get the best view. If you have alot of racers then a 2 level driver stand is best.
