A few of us are doing some more work on the outdoor track this evening, if anybody is available for a couple of hours we would welcome the extra hands.

Lots still to do, jobs include groundwork for the final rolls of astro, cutting and joining the astro, painting walls and track markers etc.

Thanks
Mike

Next work weekend is 29th and 30th March. Saturday and Sunday from 10 oclock both days. We need as much help as we can, should be our final weekend and we will be almost done.

MIke and I went to the track this morning and completed some more of the jointing - using the angle grinder. There are still some more joins to do (rain stopped play).

We have a LOT of old asto cutoffs left that we think we can use to build up another feature. Not much to do now to make it raceable

So we've decided that our first meeting on our fantastic new multi surface track will be Thursday 10th April if we get enough support on our final full work weekend, which is planned for 29/30 March.

We will open the venue up at 18:30, for open practice and aim to start racing by 19:30, our venue is fully floodlit, these floodlights have also been upgraded to use modern high intensity lighting units, which gives us great racing until we've finished the finals.

We always aim for 3 round and a final but it will depend on numbers. The photos really don't do the track justice, I will however add more photos over the next few days.

Thanks
Mike

Mike/Ash,

Are you only doing work on the weekends as this is a bit tricky, or are you doing some work on thursday night aswell cos might be able to offer some help if you need it

Hi Jamie, we have been doing some work on Thursday nights, normally we would just be cutting / joining astro etc.

Here's a photo of the progress to date.

Thanks

Another long weekend working on the track, thanks to those who helped. Unfortunately we had problems with the jcb so couldn't lay the final rolls of astro this weekend.

Get your bookings in for our opening evening on Thursday 10th April, just so we have an indication of numbers.

Thanks
Mike

As mike has said above unfortunately the starter motor failed on the JCB Saturday morning so we where unable to move the remaining astro out of the way to finish off the last few meters of track. I've been assured the JCB will be fixed tomorrow so we are going to work Monday, Wednesday and Friday night from 6.30 to get it finished. We need all the help we can so if you are free please come on down. It's looking fantastic I can't wait to race on it.

So last night we got the final rolls of astro in position, we are planning on joining these final rolls, and laying the track on Monday and Wednesday evening. Before our first club night next Thursday on the new track.
