This years Norwegian national 200mm touring championship will be held on a really exciting and challenging track. Itís got a total heigth difference of 3.44 meters...
The picture on their website does not do it justice
http://vmbk.net/ Iíll see if I can find some of my private pictures from that track.

Yes, It makes it a bit more interesting.

When figuring out the gearing you need to consider going uphill and downhill during a lap.

But the most exciting/scary part of this track is that big drop at the end of the main straight, if you cut to close on the inside your car will dissapear and (hopefully) appear a couple of meters further down!

Thumbs up

I think I just wet myself! Those are the best r/c tracks i've ever seen. You guys have it made across the pond. I've always thought about how cool it would be to race on a track with elevation changes.

Lol, not all people think like you mate, most drivers thinks a track must be perfectly flat, but a bumpy track, or a track with elevation changes, just makes racing even more interesting.

AWOLSoldier-Can you get me an address to check out on mapquest and also the owners names? I'd love to see what it costs to build a facility like that.

I have often thought of a combo Kart track/1/8th scale on-raod track, but the Gas cars need VHT down and Karts need rubber down. TOugh situation.

I see the major problem is here in the midwest (at least) were accustomed to changing the layout every couple of months. A permanent roudcourse is awesome-but after a couple months-evereyone will be pretty much dialed on the layout I would think. IN a positive way-that would lead to much tighter competition.
