Trackside Structures


No race track would be complete without a few trackside structures and spectator viewing areas. A few of these modern structures will dress up any HO raceway. The trackside structures shown below are offered in kit form. They are laser-cut white styrene buildings that can easily be assembled using Plastruct Plastic Weld. They are undecorated, and will need to have sponsor decals applied.

See the Billboards page for free sponsor logos suitable for decorating these structures.



Spectator Track Bridge

Many road courses offer spectators the opportunity of moving around the track during a race to view the racing action from both inside and outside the track. A spectator bridge provides a safe means of getting spectators across a race track while a race is underway.

Spectator Track Bridge


A bridge makes an ideal start/finish line as well. If you're using Lap Timer 2000 then this bridge can also be used to house IR-LED devices.

Note The bridge opening is tall enough to allow Tyco and Aurora A/FX Semi Tractors & Trailers to easily pass underneath.

    Flag Stand

    A flag stand provides a vantage point for the race starter to see the entire field as they form up for a rolling start. They are normally positioned before the start/finish line so as to give race officials the opportunity of giving the green flag or waving off the start.
