🏑 Circuit buildings

Next we are going to see several buildings that cannot be missing in a good model of a slot circuit. We are talking about control towers, boxes, stands, etc.

πŸ‘‰ Control Tower

They are usually placed on the finish line or the start line so that the judges do not miss any details of the race. There are usually several models, from those at track level to others with a more complex design.

πŸ‘‰ Checkered flag tower

A good place to put the lord of the flag slightly raised on the track, on the side opposite the control tower for example.

You can’t miss the pit area where you can exhibit the different cars, mechanics and other personnel before the race.

πŸ‘‰ Public bleachers

As in the real circuits, the public must be located in a grandstand area. The possibilities are numerous, with or without a roof, and of different heights.

πŸ‘‰ Press zone

This can be a specific area enclosed for the press or a coupling on the control tower. It is a question of seeing where we have the space and how we can introduce the journalists to the circuit.

🚢 People on the circuit

There are several types of people who can be represented on slot circuits. Below we will look at the most common ones.

πŸ‘‰ Press and photographers

Journalists and photographers decorate the circuit to a great extent, as you can place them wherever you want without them being out of tune.

They can be in the stands camouflaged among the rest of the public or placed in a good curve so that they do not lose any detail of the moment.

πŸ‘‰ Spectators

And what is a race without an encouraging audience? There are many characters that can be used to decorate a slot circuit: men, women, children, grandparents, salesmen, etc.

πŸ‘‰ Mechanics

A set of mechanics must be present in the pit area, each one to perform a task according to the tools with which they are characterized.

πŸ‘‰ Pit Lane Staff

As a complement to the mechanics, there are a number of characters in the pit lane that cannot be missed. They are the ones who warn the drivers of the missing laps with a blackboard, who tell them the times, etc.

🎍 Decoration without limits

These are several examples of what we can put on a slot circuit, whether Scalextric or another brand, with the idea of making it as enjoyable and realistic as possible.
