Is the track actually built yet?

From the impression i get its a undulating (sp) piece of grass that hoses/markings will be laid upon (like Oz). Or is it something more permanent?

down ramps are 8ft on the table top( clearable) and bigger kick jump.
both have a 8ft gap as well.

i think the smaller two kick jupms have somthing around 4-5 ft down ramps but i dont have the designs on me today , can confirm this tommorow

tripple has the smaller down ramp at the final section but a bigger middle down ramp

Millzy,
