Portable Slot Car Track
This 4-lane portable slot car track was designed and built
by Andrew around 1998 while he was between flying jobs. Built for use
at shows and exhibitions, it broke down into three sections and lived
in its own purpose built trailer. The circuit was fully landscaped and
proved very popular. It’s seen here in use in a promotional capacity
at a Mercedes dealership.
The only significant technical problem with the track was
the use of copper foil for supplying track power; copper has a high coefficient
of expansion with temperature, so every time it underwent a large temperature
change the foil required repairs. The track was later sold on.
