Permenent track Surface options
« on: January 14, 2018, 04:40:00 PM »
Hiya,

I am from New Zealand down under and i am looking for some information regarding the types of track surfaces you guys run on. We have a bit of land that has a track on it and have rolled and smoothed it out. We water during the day but still it seems to rut up pretty bad at the end of the day.

Do you guys have the same problems and just re roll and level or do you use clay like speedway tracks. or maybe somthing else.

We want to try and get a good surface to race on and i guess sombody on here has found the best way to prepare and maintain your tracks.

Our website to look at what we do here is http://www.boplmrc.co.nz/ and out facebook is https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=155977467863441&ref=br_rs

Cheers for any help

Some sort of clay will be your best bet

thanks for that, what do you guys race on?

Just Dirt? Speedway tracks?

Any input would be great.

Clay holds up a little bit better than black dirt, but tends to have more rock and stone.

Any surface can be made better by mixing in organic material, such as leaves, grass clippings or dried animal dung. Adding this type of material helps the track better hold moisture.
