Default How to make an RC track in a gym?

Hey guys, I'll be hosting an RC race in a traditional gymnasium in a few days and wanted to hear your thoughts on how to make the track. How can we divide the lanes? Pipes like the outdoor tracks are impractical... Also, do you have any suggestions on how to make cheap ramps? Any input is much appreciated! Thanks!

Depending on where you are in Wisconsin, you could contact the formula rc guys, they might have their out door stuff yet.

Thanks for the reply! I'm actually in Minneapolis now, haven't had the chance to update my location. I know of the formula RC team though I haven't been able to make it to one of their races! Do you know what they use to put their tracks together?

We used vinyl gutters turned upside down. Have to used bricks or 2x4 in spots to secure them.

Setup belongs to a F1/TouringCar group. Previous years we've used PVC pipe.
