    portable tracks 1/10 On Road

    What are clubs using for track layout.
    Here in Coffs large diameter PVC pipe which has been spit is being used.
    This stuf is great but involves alot of time to set up.

    What are others using please.

    Moorebank Onroad (Helles Park) is a permanent track.

    SMA is a permanent track, but they do have wooden barriers in some areas.

    SORMCC is a permanent track also, they use wooden barriers sometimes.

    GCRCCC (Gosford) is a temp track on a basketball/netball court surface, they use wooden barriers and thick rope.

    PDNR is a temp track on a carpark surface, they use wooden barriers and thick rope in some parts.


    Most temp tracks will use wood (eg 2x4's)/pvc piping/thick roping as the layout barriers, theres not much else out there for a temp track. Picture is an example at PDNR.

    Gosford actually use's PVC pipe sawn in half from memory stoogey. Much better than PDNR wooden barriers as the pipe is more forgiving. Cars either slow right down and go over it, or just slide along it

    Thanks for the correction

    And gosh your right about PDNR, that wooden barrier is not forgiving at all, the damn track layout kept changing cause everytime someone had a hit, they would shift the wooden barriers and eg. the S-Bend would get more narrow and you'd have to change your racing line...again...and again...
