Shelmore Park track

This is a nice track to drive on with a fast flowing upper level going into the back straight. At the end of the back straight is a sharp left hand corner.

The Mid lower section has some twists and turns that then brings you into a series of right hand corners to climb to the upper section.

Blowhole Park track

Grid start is just under the Monitor and leads straight into an S bend, then to a tight right hander under the bridge. A small straight to another right then brings you to the small sharp hill climb.

Then just look at that down hill back straight (reminds me a bit of
Mt Panorama at Bathurst) leading into a sweeping left hand.

A tight-ish left and a medium right then brings you back to the start to do it all again.

Schumacher Park

Well what can you say about Schumacher Park? It is a great little track that uses Scalextric home track spacing for the lane widths. It is both fast and tight and watch out for that Bloody Easter Island Statue!

This circuit is heavy on scenery and... Hey, did someone add more trees to this track since the last photo was taken???  In my opinion there is only one negative about this track and that is you can only get to one side of it which makes marshalling a little difficult.

And there it is, if you are not careful that thing will fall over and "nose dive" right into your car, I think he has it wired to automatically get the opponents car?
Just kidding Rhys.

Stratton Valley Track

This is a great track to drive on with nice flowing corners, even the hairpin style corner at the back of the track flows nicely.

You can burst along the straights and then flow into the corners. But beware, if someone has been on the track with goo on their tyres the rubber wheeled cars may get too much traction around a corner and flip off.
