Our local track uses it. It was great when it was brand new, but since it's a very thin carpet, it seems to wear out real fast. Overall traction is good though. It grooves up pretty quickly. We've been using Tq compounds made by racers edge. TQ purple for rubber and tq red for foam.

I got 3 seasons out of my Fanfare carpet, we're a temp track. Awsome traction, grooved up very nice. Really thin carpet. I got my carpet from a freind that is the warehouse manager for a very large Califrornia flooring materials distribution company so I get it for cheap and at this current time it is no less exensive than CRC Fastrack carpet. If you want the name and number for Fanfare drop me an email at [email protected]
