What steps have you taken to stop racetracking? Im currently in two minds as to infuse across the 500mm length or to have a racetrack around the periphery and suck centrally like VARTM. Only thing is that I would need multiple suction ports on the part all of which may not be equal distance from the edge.

Any thoughts?
For the panels that I did, we had no racetracking. We left about .5" of extra material past the caul plate. By having this extra material present without the pressure of the caul plate, we could pull one vacuum across the part instead of having to worry about multiple ports. Best of luck!
