Default Need info for concrete oval track building

Hey is anyone out there that can provide me with info on the surface type of a concrete oval. Looking to race pan cars 10th scale as well as youring cars.

Any info for tire combos would be great as well, foam colors etc..

This will be an indoor track, building to be multi use for all types of racing.

Thank you

Concrete tracks can be tough and tricky getting the surface finished correctly to have enough bite, plus they are very weather sensitive much of the time for tire choice depending on the size of the track. (An INDOOR concrete track could be cool, but...will it be banked or flat?) - if it's flat, you'd probably want a surface coating (Like a Tennis Court finish) - if the bite is there, your tire choice would be something most likely very similar to what guys run on asphalt, or maybe even similar to carpet, all depending on the traction level you achieve. (3 pinks and a RF purple+ ) type set up.

Where are you planning to build?

The track is going to be flat, to be able to hold different types of racing.

Where building the track In Oakland Maine at Granite Leisure Time

We have a carpet now but was destroyed by trucks, so we are trying to put somthing in place that will be usable by all. So can see pics of the current track on are web site.

Thanks for th info, all input is welcome to neg to pos comments and opinions on a concrete oval,or flat track indoor.
