My track is routed and painting has started.
What you are looking at are the three turns. I have copied the Shoreline Gypsy track.
It will be painted on both sides to stand up to the humidity in the area.
I'll post as I progress between Crab Alley Speedway races.I figured out how to post pictures after dumping photobucket.

Frank, are you aware of The Interstate Home Slot Racers? A club based mostly in the Maryland/Pennsylvania area that runs 1/32 cars on routed wooden tracks with one three lane plastic track as the exception. This club will start it's season in October and has a Web Site as well as representation both here and on that other site.

I meet some of your members (Jim Butt) at a Coney slot car show a couple of years ago.
I set up an Artin track.
I'll get in touch with you guys if I need some help finishing. As the track will be built as portable I can take it anywhere with my 4x16 flat oval. Two tracks are better than one.
I will need some advise when it comes to installing the DS-300.
Thanks,
Frank

After a delay due to Fall Racing I have had to delay working on the track.
I painted all the wooden bracing and today I glued the first part. Tomorrow I will drill and screw it down.
I'll keep you advised as I progress. Thanks for taking a look. Anyone who knows what they are doing drop by, I'll pick your brain. :text-welcomewave:
Thanks for looking. :text-thankyouyellow:
