Carpet is Prima felt GT

Never heard of hockey tape, masking tape gives enough grip anyway....

Ahh looks good, Hockeys not so big over here so I guess thats why i've never heard of it.

I've tried to find a website for the carpet manufacturers in the past but never been able to, so sorry I don't know anymore about it other than it's grippy

Actually you should try gaffers tape it leaves no residue at all ,is cloth base similiar to hockey tape & is available in many different colours including grey.It is available at most theatrical supply stores or lighting production companies.

+1 to that. That's what we use (the grey one) and it's perfect. You cannot appreciate how disturbing are the white lines before you remove them. Cute track nonetheless !

Do you find the carpet fibres build up a lot in the cars?

By the time you finish a run at Newbury, your car without the body looks like on of those stereogram pictures from the 90's
