Wanted to ask if I could use your designs for some layouts.
They work out great for our 100x48 indoor asphalt track.

The track layouts I posted in this thread can be used as you wish.

You have some unbelievable tracks mistercrash. I wouldn't be surprised if you end up being called upon to do a track layout for a major race.

here is a 112x80 I made. (the arrow denotes the direction of travel from the race start. I will add where the timing loop would go later)

Thanks TD.

Here's what I'm trying for now. Layouts which are drawn from a grid with the grid included in the pic. The drawings are simple, just to show what the layout is and with the help of the grid, where the boards, 2X4s or whatever should be, according to the grid. People can figure out for themselves if they want to round the corners or put some fake grass here and there (or real grass if it's outside). I don't feel I have to spend that much time to make it pretty, just clear enough for people to use it.

The grid itself can be any size you want. Each square represents the width of the lanes. The squares can be 8' wide, 10', 12', etc.... easy to calculate the total size of the track.

That is the beauty of the program that I use mistercrash (especially now that I use the open tiles a lot). It allows me to see where the boards are, as well as the open areas so the maximum amount of space is used if it is ever brought to life. Although you make some absolutely unbelievable tracks I gotta say

This is IMHO the best kind of track for a permanent facility either out or indoors. You can just positions a few barriers to make a race course in a matter of minutes. This example is for an indoor carpet track. The Ozite carpet is glued to the floor, then pieces of fake grass, or even thick carpet, is held on top of the Ozite with double sided tape. The outer edge of the fake grass is held down with red or yellow duct tape. A few permanent barrier, shown in white, made out of 2X4s, rain gutters or whatever.
