Oval Track Owners! Reader's Roads Updates

Postby HomeRacingWorld » Sat Dec 20, 2014 9:27 pm

What we would like is to have a Reader's Road's the "old fashioned way" like we used to do.

If you would like to contribute, here is how.

1. At least 4 to 8 good photos of your HOME OVAL track. NOT a commercial raceway. This is HOME Racing World after all.
2. Photos should be 1000x750 pixels max size, 640x480 smallest.
3. Accompany your photos with a word document describing your track.
4. Type of track, ie Carrera/wood..etc.
5. Dimensions.
6. Power you use and controllers.
7. What you use for timing if any.
8. Location
9. Your favorite models/how you race? Do you have a series going or just a solo enthusiast?
10. Your username on our forum so folks can contact you with questions.

Email the data to me harry@homeracingworld.com

Thanks to any and all for doing so. :music-rockout:

How about including lane spacing with the dimensions?

I'll post infos next week, during holidays. Today I'm finalizing wiring the controllers and last lanes. Next week, I'll do the race management and laptiming. I hope to finish this project I started this summer before 2015. This way, next year will be the year of completion of my HO road race track.

Sure, it's an oval to me. Oval, Circle Track...pick your terminology. If your turning left it will do :)

Not that much really. I only need 4 to 6 images of the track and the description. I don't need a huge library of images of the cars. Just a couple for titles and to give folks an idea of what you run.

Are all 3 ovals setup? Sure, include all 3.
