Talking Track work

Spent a full day rotovating, digging, raking, rolling and levelling at heath today. Things are starting to come together have a few shots of the work in progress from mid afternoon today before we did any rolling to flatten ready for the astroturf.
Tomorow (sunday) should see majority of the astro going down which will allows us to see what areas if any will need further improvement
Thanks to all the helpers today

We've pulled the top few inches off the top area by the trees and brought that down the sloping mid section of track, to make nice gentle sloped area from top to bottom.
The old " blind jump" infront of the rostrum was the first casulty today

Nice picture of my arse!

Was bloomin hard work today, but well worth it. A few more hours to finish off at the top and a bit of fettling when it's settled down in a week or two and it will be brill.

And yes, you can throttle it down where the straight normally is now

We tested that before we left today.......

That's for another day.

We're also planning on putting some features into the track too, but the main objective of this weekend was to break the back of the work needed to make the area suitable to race on again. Which we did

There will be more opportunities to lend a hand later in the year.......
