Default Track design for 1/5 offroad


I am looking for any suggestions on making a 1/5 offroad track, we have a piece of land that we can build on and need to plan something.

What width, length, start line, ideal curves jumps???

Hi HeliboySA,
Here in the UK, our National tracks are 250M-400M in length and 4m minimum width. Tracks are mud and/or astro turf. We have table top jumps, woops and banked corners.
I would try and build yourself something thats fast with some tricky bits, but nothing thats going to be a real car breaker, have fun and would like to see some pics of the development of the track when you have them. All the best.
PS. I can send you some picture of off road track from all over Europe, just Email me.

I found this one of a off-road but it can still be used as a starting point.
