A while ago I saw a post with a track layout poster that included labeled images of dozens of the tracks built through years. From all builders.
Now I can not find it.
Does anyone remember where it is?

Shiggy;

   Not positive this is what you are looking for, but for what it's worth, "here it is":

No, not there. I have looked through all of the pinned track threads above.
This was a single sheet poster (page/ad/???) showing labeled plan views of the various track designs from many different companies/builders.

Be aware that's a John Ford created poster, and it represents the work of himself and Hasse Nilison.

 

Hence stuff like 200 ft. Purple with a round donut.

 

And some of the tracks are one offs, like the Zeke.

 

That was the rental track at Grand Raceway, in the mid to late 80's, designed by Csaba "Chubba/Zeke" Szekelyhidi.

I also noticed the Kingleman 125 is on there twice. We race on one of those (at least the same layout) at Master's in Pasco WA. It splits the driver stations with 4 on each side of the track.

The San Antonio is repeated, too.

There are a few more, that are on there, twice.

 

Maybe just to fill out the space.

 

Still, pretty nicely done.

In general, I find it easier to understand the layouts in plan view than when seeing track photos.

There is one track that is not labeled. It looks like an Altech of some sort. Hasse built a track similar to that for Dave Jones and me in Wichita around 1986. Ours was 192' and had esses more like an Engelman. I loved that track, it may have been the nicest track I have ever raced on! Then again I may be prejudiced!

I wish someone would get me an original of that poster and I could have some done dirt cheap.

I have the one you see.

You can borrow it anytime.

IMO, it would be way cooler if it was American tracks.

I agree, but the only AMCR track design print I have ever seen is the one for the King, and I'm not sure if it's an original. If there are any others, I would appreciate hearing about them.
