As for the main jump they have been tested by some of the best drivers we had a small issue with the lip going on to the jump. But this will be sorted before the national.

Give it a rest Danny, lets just be grateful that people are giving up so much of their spare time to host the events we have.

to be fair- I think you have over used the Grass cutting card Danny, as you told me at taly your not a fan of grass tracks any way

I spoke to Jamie at taly and he told me about the jumps Oz now has and how good they are, the club has put a lot of work in to iorn out and past issues

I think it's fair to say that every club that hosts a national event always puts in 100% effort, i don't think that people come away and think that the organisers couldn't be arsed. Some clubs are lucky, the likes of EPR etc has probably the best off road track i have raced on and the facilities to go with it. Some clubs have to make do with a piece of grass but the effort put in is equal i am sure.

I can see where Danny is coming from, as the year before last he arrived on the Friday and challenged the length of the grass - the guys pointed out the lawnmower and Danny forfeited the whole evening and cracked on cutting the grass on his own.

So he does have good grounds for his request. But its fair to say, the guys at Oz know what they're doing..

Credit where credit's due.
Danny felt that the grass was too long last year but he was prepared to put his back into it and cut it again himself on the Friday evening when he arrived.

No disrespect meant to any of the club officials who put on a great show last year - just respect to Danny for not just arriving and moaning about a situation that he didn't like - (and also respect to the club for not being offended by his comments or his offer to cut it again to his liking)

I'm sure that Ozfest 09 will be every bit as good as 08 and I'm looking forward to it already.

Think we've heard enough about the grass now, in jest or otherwise.

Just remember if it's too short and it does rain heavily the track is irrepairably fooked before the end of practice.
