The dirt track is also more affected by the weather, as in '14. The Sunday was quite literally a washout, which is a kick in the teeth for all who've helped prep in the weeks leading to the event. As James has said it means a lot of hard work for lots of people in the run up. I would be happy with either track myself, probably actually prefer the astro. And I like the sound of the enormous new arena building James, I'm sure it will be a top notch venue if the usual RHR crew have anything to do with it.

Running on the dirt means a good number of our team taking a week off work to prep the dirt track all week for the oOple. The event is 6 months away yet and as Damo said, it is unconfirmed due to the practicalities as we simply don't know if we have enough people for the week to set it up. It takes 7 people just to take the covers off, daily for a week prior as an example. Obviously when the entry form is out the surface will be confirmed. The venue not being touched since the euros is rubbish, we're down at the track every week doing something or other, not least erecting the enormous new arena building.
If you do decide to use the dirt track, I will try and take the tail end of the week off to come help.

Dread to think what dealing with a clay track in this country is like, maybe the big new building should be built over it taking care of our pesky weather
