I think bracing with thinner top face is better, and probably lighter, than much thicker single piece. I would also advise you to steer clear of MDF partly because it doesn't take pins at all well. Plywood would be much better. If you can afford it bracing with 25mm hardwood might be best.

Have you thought about making the layout slightly larger and using a pair of ready made doors? You might even be able to find them only 2ft wide.

Think very carefully about how you are going to take the track across the breaks. Best if it's exactly at right angles to the board edge. Some comments about this in the archives of this site.

Good luck with it anyway, Robert.
