What is our track made of and why
There’s more to it than meets the eye with Sensor-Track. Our scientists developed the track using a base material of PVC, which was selected for its high tensile strength, flexibility and chemical resistance. This base material was then further re-enforced using an encapsulated micro-weave fabric, to maximise tear resistance while maintaining the desired balance between weight, thickness and strength. We then experimented with custom texture finishes, to determine the optimum amount of friction to allow the cars tyres to grip the track, but allow players to drift, or oversteer with opposite lock, through corners. The brief was to replicate as closely as possible the feel and interaction of a real car on a real race track.
The result is a track system that no matter how big you wish to go, is still portable enough to carry to your friends or the park, in a low weight and compact storage box. No lumpy bits of plastic or metal ensure Sensor-Track can also be truly flat packed for the most efficient stowage. You won’t fill a whole wardrobe no matter how large your collection of track pieces becomes and your track and cars are 100% compatible with everyone else’s, so you can go large. Very, very large.
Throughout the development we worked closely with model racing enthusiasts to build a modular system of track parts that delivers the maximum flexibility to design and build different race circuits. You can now take ‘Le Mans’ to your mates, with extra Sensor-Track pieces such as short & sharp (R1) bends for tight circuits and wide sweeping (R2) bends, bottlenecks, and crossovers. Sensor Track allows you to build realistic representations of famous race tracks like Silverstone & Nurburgring! See the Track Builder where building tracks of the world are a reality.
