Ok let's get it started!
Round 2 of Eden Park's winter series is this Sunday.
We want to see 50+ this weekend please!!!
We have done alot of work since the last round with more to come this Saturday if any of you want to help.
In my opinion this track will get a National, so it,s the perfect chance to learn this track, and from what I have been told is it's a very rewarding track if you get it right!!! And we will be having the favored line starts:D
The weather forecast is for a nice sunny day as well.
You can pre-book with Matt or Alex, and Mr Brooke will be running this meeting :o LOL.
I would like to see more of the Stotfold boys there and any of you guys that were at CML Sunday, well you will love this track as well, oh and Lee M. you should come along as well, along with Mr Trueman and the Cockhill's!!!!
See you all Sunday!!!!

Popped down the track on Sunday and saw that the rain had washed some of DC's hard work away but still, the effort that was put in on the Saturday has made a huge difference!

The plans for track work this Saturday are to try and get rid of the weeds and grass that are on the outside of the main straight and down the side of the jumps. So, if anyone can bring shovels and stiff brooms it would be appreciated!!!

awsome day track side, really enjoyed it even if it was a bit long for me with doing both classes. well done to ellis on the win in 2wd, next time slow down a bit to have some fun with the rest of us :D. track is improving every time i go there and the change from double to table top jump seems to of made it more consistent for the beginer's and so peeps like keith, etc were happy. well done to all involved in running it all, cant wait for the next one ;)

CharlieF

Well done Matt and Steve a right laugh - well organised. Well done also to Ian Boulter who I understand did all the track upgrade work, and to "Church the Paint" or is it "Church the Brush" who oversaw all the track mark painting which has gone on. Well done looks nice.

Ebordraw
05-11-2007, 08:38 PM
Don't forget Steve Andrews who I believe renewed the sides of the Bomb hole among other things.

btw Some of us need to be scared, Toby is coming for us :) I think it might be time I gave him a quicker motor than a 16T.

Agreed, there have been a few people that have spent a lot of their spare time working on this track and it shows.

A really enjoyable track and facilities that just keep on getting better.

I had a good time Sun trying out a new car and new track layout :D

Here is a cute little story,

On Sunday, a young lad that was there to play football was over by the track, he was also looking at my car and said "That car is sick" I looked at him puzzled, he said "that means it's good!!!!"
I played it off, of course, cheers dude!!!!

Hahahahahahaha

lets be fair that was an awful performance,i will add i have put a 2wd full traction control setting on the mamba and sorted my throttle curve so it can actually creep instead of full power,see what happens,

matt i npicked up some orange mesh fencing which i will bring sat to replace old broken black stuff.martin
