Default What Carpet?????

Hey guys,

Our club is thinking of getting some racing carpet, and we were wondering on the opinions that people have about the different types. I believe there is 3 types that I know of.. 1. Dupont Daytona 2. Ozite 3. Calandras Fasttrak

I was just wondering on the opinions on these carpets, Longevity traction, characteristics. We will be rolling up the carpet after every race and storing it till the next week or 2.

Ozite seems to be the most popular from my area here, there a 3 new tracks with ozite carpet all within 2 hours of each other. As for the carpet itself ozite has excellent traction as for its lifespan we went 2 and a half years with ozite at a track before the place shut down and it still had plenty of traction left and probably could have lasted a couple more years.
