I set up the track for racing this summer in my basement using 1/2" PVC pipe and carpet. Dimensions are 30 feet by 15 feet, which means the whole track is 450 sq. feet. I was able to make 42 inch lanes, which is plenty for a high speed course. Here are some pictures:

And here is a shot at the end of the 30 foot straightaway.

Very cool! Sometimes I miss carpet racing these cars... F1s were a ton of fun on carpet and you certainly have the lane width for it!

Kel's track is built on their basement carpet which it s standard industrial carpet. The traction was awesome.
