Our 1/8 scale track dimensions have been increased to 195ft in width and 125ft in length after we were awarded the hosting location for the 2016 Worlds. Our layouts consist of 15 foot wide lanes with 4″ corragated pipe secured to the surface by 12″ stakes to contain the cars to each racing lane. The track layouts have off-cambered, flat and bermed corners with 4 to 6 jump sections per layout, ranging from doubles, triples, step ups, whoops, elevation changes and tabletops.
Lap times range from 40 to 45 seconds in length depending on the layout. The dimensions on the 1/10 scale track are 75ft in width and 100ft in length. The parameter of the tracks have a 4 foot tall chain link fence that is 5 feet away from the edge of the track. This borders the entire track and contains any runaway or out of control cars from reaching spectators or pit areas. We have imported 75 truck-loads of clay that has very few rocks.
It compacts and holds together very well. The clay allows us to run it wet or dry. When dry, it takes rubber and grooves up well, giving medium to high bite traction without the use of any chemicals or additives, and does not break down. This insures equal track conditions for all qualifying heats and main events. Maintenance should be limited to leaf blowers and brooms to remove minor dust from the surface.
