track layout?

Recommended Posts

I have a 5 acre lot that i would like to make a track on. Its square field with a 40' elevation change, a gradual slope that runs the length of the lot.

Is there any info on the web or a book that covers track layout so i can maximize the space i have?

You are probably on your own for the layout. Just use the natural contours of the land and allow for drainage.

Are you planning on doing any earth moving? If not, just grab a few old car tyres to mark some corners for a track; you can keep changing the layout if you want, or change it around until you find a layout you like and then build a few jumps and berms too. It sounds like a nice block for a track! How 'bout a miniature Glen Helen(just kidding)?

i have a small backhoe and a skid steer at my disposal. I'm thinking I'll just have to ride it and build up some features. i don't want to build a crazy fast or super-cross style track, just some fun technical stuff.
