    Hi.

    Chris Frost in UK is a very good place to start: http://www.slotcar.org.uk/trackbuild/index.htm

    Here you can read an awfull lot on how to build tracks.

    When you are done and need a race control system, then have a look at my LapMaster system: http://www.slotcarracing.dk/LapMaster/LapMasterPR.htm
    Best regards,
    Carsten Groennemann.

    Alvin,

    John Ford has a book out that gives you step-by-step instructions. Here's a link to his site: Scale Auto Racing

    According to his site there are a few tracks being built (or already built) using the book. Hopefully one of more of those people can chime in.

    How about a nice used one?

    The small 8 lane Silky Kingleman at Paradise Raceway in Palatine, Illinois is available. Call Andy (see post on tracks for sale).

    OR how about a full size Dadds? Just moved one to C & R Raceway in Bradley, IL - it is from Phoenix Raceway in Ottawa, IL. In VG shape!

    I GREATLY APPRECIATE THE DIRECTION ON WHO TO CONTACT ABOUT TRACK BUILDING. THE MAIN SOURCE I CHOSE IS CHRIS FROST OF BSCRA. I TRIED HIS WEBSITE AT RAMCALARRY@ATT.NET BUT RECEIVED AN ERROR OF E-MAIL ADDRESS. DO YOU HAVE THE CURRENT E-MAIL ADDRESS? THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP.
