For years our church has run on a two lane wood track. We are in discussions about converting to an 3 lane aluminum track. The old track resulted in multiple races to determine a winner which caused the event to last for hours with maybe 30 cars. How much time do you believe we would save with a 3 lane aluminum track and would 4 be better for so few cars? Thanks
A clarification to my above question....when I stated multiple races to determine a winner I was referring to 2 cars racing several times and having to win on both lanes to be declared a winner of a race. My understanding is, that on the aluminum track a car only has to run once on a lane to be declared a winner...?
Hi Spinner, I am not totally sure if I follow your question but maybe my input will help. It is best to have a track with a timer to have complete transparency on who won a race. There are many times when a race is "too close to call" because the cars are so close together at the finish line. It does not matter if you have two or three lanes. A timer will do you well! Personally, if I am running a race, I will run each car at least once in each lane and average out times to determine placing of racers. Let me know if I can provide any other input! Murph
