Overlook Raceway Park

Recommended Posts

Here are some photos of my model car racing set up in my basement. It's 4.5 ft wide and 16.5 ft long, each lane is 62 ft long. The track is a mix of  plastic Scalextric Classic and more modern Scalextric Sport, all analog. It has been under development for over 3 years and I'll probably be doing upgrades and improvements for several more years. To me, construction and adding scenery is just as fun as building and racing the cars.

WOW! That is neat! As a model railroader as well as a car modeler and drag slotcar racer, I can say that is an awesome setup you built. I'd be proud to have that in my basement (as if I had the room, lol). Keep up the good work and see ya at the finish line.

I'm not eating in the basement, yet. Actually, my slot track is the most finished part of our basement. The rest of it is probably not fit to eat in. Not enough spare time to work on the track and keep the slot cars running, let alone clean up the rest of the basement.
