What You’ll Need To Make Your Backyard Race Car Track -:
Our member Marie Louise even gave us some photos of her completed project and to say she did a great job is an understatement! Now, it’s your turn! Let’s look at what you are going to need to make your own Backyard Race Car Track.
The first thing you will need to do is mark out your track. This can be done by using rope for best results. Excavate inside lines to a depth of 100mm and roughly level ground. Next you want to place Tire in desired position, then excavate so half the Tire sits below ground level.
Put 2 bags of Sand & Cement Mix and a capful of Black Oxide Powder in a wheelbarrow and blend thoroughly. Slowly add water until mixture is stiff. Now you want to line trench with Bricktor which is a mesh used by brickies to prevent concrete cracking.
Now you will need to shovel cement mixture into trench, level with a float and smooth with a trowel. If the mixture isn’t as dark as you would like, sprinkle black oxide powder onto the surface. You will then need to spread with wooden float and smooth with trowel.

Adding Final Touches To Your Backyard Race Car Track -:
Now you are ready to remove turf from inside of track and backfill with garden soil. Plant up, mulch and gently water. It should really be looking good about now!
To complete this awesome backyard race car track you need to trace and cut out a chequerboard pattern onto a sheet of plastic. Place on track and spray-paint white.
Make stencils for lane markings and for the word ‘Start’, and spray-paint onto track. To make ‘safety barrier’, cut poly tube to length and wrap electrical tape, in a spiral, around it. Place along edge on sections of track. Secure with pegs. Be sure to add your own ideas too!
Put flags near finish line and you are done! As you can see from the pics above our Member Marie made this awesome backyard race car track and her little one couldn’t be happier. This is a fun DIY that the whole family will love. Be sure to scroll our page and check out the Backyard Play Area too and don’t forget to Pin your favourites.

As you can see below, Besser Bricks also work really well for this project.
