Another super race meeting at ‘Silverstone’!

Last Saturday some of the Black Country Digital Racers and other friends came over to leafy Warwickshire for another Digital Open Day on the Silverstone track we took to the UK Slot Festival at Gaydon back in May, where it won Best Track.  Since then we have upgraded it for a full Digital racing experience by adding a working Pit Lane so as to make refuelling and penalties possible.  To make it similar to the actual one at Silverstone we had to cut some Scalextric track pieces (mainly R1 curves) into single lane pieces and splice a single lane curve into a Radius 4 curve for the Pit Lane exit.  After a few initial issues I think we got there.  We also cut some in-fills for the holes in the middle of each half and decorated one side (the old runways).  Here are some more pictures.
