Default Plans for drivers stand etc...

We are looking to build a drivers stand , bleachers, peir and such. Does anyone know of any pictures or plans (ha ha) of these kinds of things? Also if you have done this in the past did you get any assistance from the National clubs or any of the local hardware and lumber companies? Any help is appreciated.

I've never seen any plans for any of those. If you hit the area races, see what you like and don't like about their setups. I've stood on scaffolding, farm wagons and the ground at various ponds. Plan it so that 6 racers and their pit men can see the pond very well without crowding. Check to see if you have any invalids that race around you to see if you have to accomodate them with a ramp.
Are you building a permanent stand or does it have to be movable? Docks are fairly easy to make if you really need one, bleachers are a hassle. Most people bring along their own folding chairs.

Only shot I took of the stand at the 2004 IMPBA Internats in Jackson Tn.

Very upper level was for judges...
