Here's my track, Whichwood Quarry.

[attachment=58][attachment=56]

It's a temporary analogue Scalextric layout, mixing Sport and Classic track, with some attempt at scenery modules, buildings, figures, trees etc. The layout measures 3.5m x 1.5m and has lane lengths of nearly 20m.

It loosely recreates a rally set in the 1970s, which is my favourite era and type of motor sport. It's actually based on my experiences of going to watch the R.A.C. Rally as a youngster, in the cold, and often bleak conditions of the Yorkshire countryside in winter. Although it's a rally track, I've kept it as a two lane circuit, mainly because people like racing against each other, rather than against the clock.

The scenery is made almost entirely from free materials, and it's all built in modules, so that I can dismantle it and pack the track away. I've used cardboard for the borders, walls and general structure, polystyrene packaging for the rock faces, collected heather and twigs for the trees, moss for the shrubby weeds, sawdust for the grass and leaves, and scouring pads for hedges. The main cost for the scenery was in glue and paint.
