Slot Track Plans

Slot racers usually say that trying to reproduce a real race track does not necessarily produce a good slot track. Well, in some ways I would agree. If you're setting up a permanent layout, or if you have a small space, then it's probably not the best approach to take.

But if, like me, you are a fan of motorsport and it's history, then there is a certain fascination to recreating a real circuit. After all, we have accurate cars, with real liveries, so why not at least attempt to bring some accuracy to the track?

Obviously, it is a challenge to design, to set up, and to drive, but it can be a lot of fun if you have the space or are setting up a temporary track.

The Project

So this is my project to design slot track layouts for every single circuit of the 2018 Formula One season.

There are layout plans for Scalextric, Ninco, and routed tracks, for every single circuit on the 2018 F1 calendar. There is also a smaller selection of plans for Carrera, Tyco, and Airfix.

All in all there are over 70 track plans, using various track systems, and all popular scales, including HO, 1/43, 1/32, & 1/24.

As well as the track plans, we also have comprehensive track lists, elevation maps, and some interesting facts and links for every circuit.
