This is what you get from trying to upload them straight from your phone. Give me a minute.

The track is looking great, looking foward to racing on it for the 1st time.

We've still got lots more to do, but it's really starting to take shape.

A big thank you to everyone who helped this weekend.

I was in the warehouse that overlooks the track above the rostrum and it looked like you had removed the post from the middle of the track?

I also jokingly asked steelrol if they would cut the trees down as it stops the sun getting onto the track

Yeah that's right, the post has now gone, well actually it's been moved to the outside edge by the car parking area.

We have also asked them to cut the damn trees, but little joy as yet. We have cut a lot of overhanging branches but really they need 20ft off the top.

Well the plan is to be outside early in April, although that depends on track progress over the next month. Ash has another track work day planned for the end of February.

The next stage is to get more stone laid over the existing straight, finish building the supporting walls for the bomb hole + new table top and then get on with laying more astro.

Thanks for the offer of help Jamie, the next weekend is likely to be the 8th & 9th of March, we do really do need as much help as possible to ensure that we are ready for the upcoming outdoor season.

I've tried Attaching photos of the progress which the guys have made this weekend, if these have not worked then check out our Facebook page. Oswestry rcc.

Great progress again today, the bomb hole supporting walls are now finished, apart from 1 extra layer of blocks. The footings are now in for the new table top supporting wall.

Our next work weekend will be 15/16 march, to finish laying stone and preparing the surface for laying astro on the 16th.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I agree, can't wait for us to be in a position to race, the first meeting on the new track is likely to be the 3rd or 10th of April and all depends on progress in the next couple of weeks.

1 new table top built today, and 6 more rolls of astro laid. Unfortunately we broke the fence when a lifting strap failed.

But on a positive we've tried running a couple of cars on the track today and the track is going to be really flowing with some great new jumps, dips and changes in elevation.
