My work mates wanted to put a hot wheels track on our office wall. There was much discussion on how to mount it to the wall. I decided to take on the task and use my wood shop skills to engineer a solution. Here is a video of the result. The office races begin in about a month.. I hope my car wins :)

We ordered most of the track stuff through Amazon and some we simply bought at local toy stores. The toughest part was figuring out that the precise positioning of the track on the wall was critical and that 3M command strips was the best practical solution, combined with wood blocks and metal brackets. The devil is in the details.
