Oh so cool.
What happens if the cars crash inside the tunnel, are they easy to remove?

no we just cement the opening closed and dig a new tunnel

Got a couple of those grabber litter picker thingies.

That is superb.
Can you add realism by exporting fire to the Swiss through the tunnel?

a thing of beauty. It needs nothing, but if the need were felt for embellishment, may I suggest a 'Monaco' quay-side section? Perhaps with scale super-yachts?

Love the backdrop.A couple of wee spectators watching the racing action would be nice (And also fun for the cars to crash into when/if they come off the track).

Totally cool! Do you have any of that dynamic change lane jazz build in?

...as this was back in the 70s. Dad and I carried an old door we rescued from the dump back to our house, mounted it on hinges horizontally 4 feet up the wall, and built a track layout on it.

Hinge up. Race, hinge down to reclaim space. Nice one, dad.

(He also built an outdoor play structure in the shape of a cube, probably about 6' x 6' x6;. Each face had a different activity - monkey bar, swing &etc. Get bored with one thing? Roll the cube onto a different face and off you go again...)
