Few bits done tonight when I went to get the key :thumbsup: Progress should be quite quick no I have 24/7 access :D

Put up a temporary barrier to devide up the tracks area to the rest of the site and laid one of the hoses.

Measurements of the track will be 34m L x 10m W x 23m W and the straight is currently set to 29m (inside track) and is 3m wide.

Just left enough space for the 1.5m rostrum width and .5m from rostrum to track.

Will be down next week to lay the rest of the track, then cut n strim and playtime can commence!

Strimmer could be usefull. Some overgrown brambles on the home straight need citting back to the fence and some blocks thrown onto the embankment (where they came from).

All in all in REALLY flat which is awesome and not an awlfull lot to do:thumbsup:

I think once we get somewhere high to stand on we can run the track :thumbsup:

Then we can look at features and jumps, I'd like a few table tops and mini yumps etc.

The Chef
04-04-2011, 09:29 PM
MINI yumps sound really interesting:p

Looks great Neil. You really have put some hard work in. Only thing is possibly looks a little linear and could be a little more technical. But top banana for first outing so soon.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup: Can't wait to have a go.:woot:

Will you be running next Wednesday? A couple of us will be up for coming down.

Dudders
12-04-2011, 06:39 PM
....well we were going to race on Wednesday but I think we'd be better doing Tuesday as the site runs a huge auction every wednesday night.

We can still get to the track on Wednesday's but parking could be tricky, even on the massive site.

Tuesday's I think would be best if ok.

Southwell
12-04-2011, 07:29 PM
Tuesdays is cool with us.
What time are you planning for people to arrive?

Dudders
12-04-2011, 07:31 PM
I'll aim to get there for 6.30pm to open up and cars on track from about 7.00pm. No need to rush over direct from work :thumbsup:

Mark,

Yes, we are down there tonight to remove some brambles and prepare the area for the rostrum being installed tomorrow. Be there from 6.30pm to 7pm tonight. IF we get done then I'm sure we can discharge a LiPo in the only suitable way!!! :thumbsup:

Bring some clippers and gloves!

That's a shame, Tuesdays clash with the Moto Arena. There will always be something that clashes so people will just have to choose.

Monday: ??
Tuesday: Moto Arena
Wednesday: Stotfold evening series as always (soon)
Thursday: DMS
Friday: Taplow

Best night would be Monday then :thumbsup:

Dudders

It is a Dilemna Alec but I think we are far enough away from Moto and also will offer something different from it (good or bad! :D). Farnham to Silverstone is 2 hours on a good run without traffic.

I'm also busy Monday's so :p

On a serious note would be good to see you down when day when your busy diary allows :thumbsup:

Thanks to Chef for the trimming action tonight :thumbsup:

All set for the rostrum now and with the additional storage unit coming next week we're good to go!

Role on FREE OPEN PRACTICE on Tuesday 19th next week :woot:
