      yes and no. the borders for standard r3 and r2 will clip on the track. if you can find a way to support them. they will work. hint lots of pink foam cut to shape will work. I have done it but removed because I did not like the way they came out.

        I've used strips of Luan plywood and hot glue.

          Personally I prefer to support with a base.

          The Scalextric banked turns really require a base to support them, if you construct that then borders are easy to create. I have found the beauty of Scalextric track is its flexibility but without support, and i mean solid support not plastic braces, the track moves around too much.
          Build a solid base and amazing things can be done with Scalextric track, but have it raised up without support and track joints flex which causes run-ability issues.
          Poster board cork or art board can be used to create great borders.
