I like it!
From a "serious racer" perspective I'd be tempted to have it all as one track, but for what you seem to be aiming for it looks spot on.
Definitely seems more 1/16 than 1/10, but pics can be deceiving...

Hi Col,
Thank you for your comment! Because its indoors its a bit more difficult. We have tried to make the most of the space given. With the pillars in the way this is the best we could come up with. Of course we do listen to the feedback from our customers and will always try to fulfill their wishes. One day we might build a big track .
Come and see us sometime.

It would be gread to see a few guys down with different scale car to see how many 1/10th 1/12th mardaves ect we can push round the track and get some feedback from fellow racers.

There also is another room at the back waiting on development as the club grows

There is also roof access for drone action in the future.

Hi foodingre

Because there are two tracks and two rostrums they could probably do 6 -7 cars per track at the same time

And how many people can they fit hmm mm...it's quite a big place with other big rooms leading of the main track room

Guess they will find out in time when the club nights start up

There are multiple banners on the road you turn up to the mill to give good directions to people looking for the track but maybe a few put on the main road will work too

Thousands of cars a day pass there so would make sense to advertise there, means passing trade might see it rather than people who happen to turn up the side road

Good job mate. Think this place would be perfect for a stock built series.
Would have to be 12th scale or micros tho. I would be up for that once a month

Kamtecs 'IRace' system is £300 plus £13 per transponder, good place to get started.
