How to show a post single post in page template

im trying to understand how to target a template for an individual post.

if i use the following hierarchy for my site,

    - track car
    - race car
    - road car
    - fast road
    - paddock services

what i really want to do is create and style the template for the post i've created for "track car" which is a post belonging to category "services".

I've worked out that if i create category-services.php then i can style an overview page which covers all of the services on one page, but what template do i create if i want to style a page which will show the service requested.

what template will cover the following requests "somewebsite.com/services/track-car/" "somewebsite.com/services/race-car/"

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

i've just had it suggested to me to think of the services tree as the blog, which makes the categories a type of post. i guess then that i could use an if statement in the usual pages (index and archive.php?). is this the way forwards? – bytejunkie Jul 25 '12 at 9:19

n/p - I marked it as duplicate. :) – kaiser Jul 27 '12 at 10:15

I'm not sure if it can be done with posts, but if you're using pages, you can use a template called page-id.php where id is the page id of your track car page. The template hierarchy can help you.
