Tyre Wall

I decided parts of my circuit needed to be protected by tyre walls, but I do not have enough old Scalextric tyres to make a wall of a decent size so I needed to make my own. I also wanted to make little stacks of tyres covered in coloured plastic as used in the past at many big circuits, but now only used at smaller circuits and make shift (rally) courses.

You will have to make do with just the pictures for now. I will add text later.
