It looks good with the cars going round. I've only seen it with 1/2 on it before.

Can't wait to come and help next time.
I'll have to bring my car.

Went up to the track for the first time in ages yesterday.

The job the RHR boys have done is AMAZING.

Sooooo many different layouts possible, sooo much grip in the wet or dry, none of that slidy astroturf in the wet. At one point I didn't realise the track was wet as the covered rostrum kept it off my head.

Jumps and bumps are super-sorted. The straight isn't quite bowling green flat (pi## take, I think you should've rolled it once more, pi## take). Changes in elevation just add to the track's AMEZZIN-NESS.

RHR-Possibly the best Off-Road track in the country....

Mark, just the usual suspects seem to work.

I've got to say good job on the video James, but don't you think the size things like the bomb hole and banked corner look smaller on there than they are, also you don't really get a feel for all the height changes.

As some people probably know this track feels like my second child! BUT I really must thank the people that have been down to help on the work party days, especially the core team we have had down there - you guys know who you are

Just some small jobs to do before the NE regional now, but unfortunately that looks like it'll be the first time it will get used in anger. Would like to see lots of people using it and enjoying it

Cheers,

G

Schumacher minispike yellow compound for dry and green for damp or wet and Ballistic spikes green or pink compounds should work well in the wet too.

I havent run my car on it on the full track, but when i did run round partially i used last years old yellows, in the dry and there was stacks of grip..
I think they were all using an assortment of old tyres yesterday - yellows/greens, not sure if someone had ballistics and the track was absolutely wet through...

So basically i'd imagine in the dry - anything but perhaps lean towards yellows.
Wet - yellows/greens ... they looked to be fine

Im sure the others will be on here with comments later...

The track does look the nuts, well done to all involved

I cant wait to give it a run at the regional, from the video alone i would say it looks as good as any UK track i have driven.

I ran yellows all day yesterday.
Dry, damp and very wet.

They weren't even vaguely new.
