Closest Travel Lodge will be Long Sutton - anyone that's raced at holbeach may have stayed there. Closest Travel Inn will be Kings Lynn. There probably isn't a massive amount in it as to which is closest, guess both are about 10 mins away.

Tyres - i'd say yellows dry - and personally staggar rib 2wd front, BB greens wet.

Best bet is to look at Eastrax website http://www.easupertrax.co.uk/


Ben, the grip is good but varies from corner to corner depending on the way the astro is laid, so one corner you understeer the next it may snatch. As for tyres like MattW has said Schumacher yellows in the dry, I never managed to get stagger ribs to work so tended to just cut the outer spikes off if theres to much , and Ballistic greens in the damp / wet.

As for the jumps, if your sensible they are fine, all I am going to say is use the downslope, thats what it's there for :)

Jonathan is right the jumps are big enough to fly as far as you can, but all you achieve with that is to land on the flat and break the car!!! Much better to aim for the down slope. Eastrax is much like Kiddy in that show it no respect and you will get bitten either by grip or by trying too hard.
Having done a bit of practice there I thought I would be OK at the regional the other week - wrong!!!
Regards
Charlie.

10-15 mins if i remember correctly.

the place is literally surrounded by fields and a power station up the road. The ramada hotel in Kings lynn is pretty good if people are hotelling. :thumbsup:
