Thought i'd start a new topic.
I'm here most nights!!!!! :D
Anyone is free to come down and lend a hand. BYO, I normaly have a few.
We need grooming of the track!!!!
Easy work, just a spade and skim the weeds off!!!
New corner nearly finished. "De Pole".
Ran out of materials. ie ran out of usable dirt!
But its not like where short of any.
Just gotta work abit to get it.
So a bit more drainage, and were there. :D
Think a bit of wood mite be on the cards, for the bit after turn one, and after the big berm.
Make a triangle piece that would go all the way. Help anyone!!!
The tyres are great, but they dont look very good there.
The drainage core to the centre of the track is a must!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Need another trench dug, (Dave, where are you, haha.)
I tend to be at the track at 4.30, 5.00, and then carry on till 7ish.
Dam daylight savings!!! :x
Small bits make a good track. 8)

At this stage its run what ya bring. We have no official racing yet. Still need to complete the drivers stand etc.
When you say rallycross, what type of car do you mean? as 1/8th nitro is called rallycross. If you mean rally cars, they may stuggle a bit with the jumps as their ride height will be to low. But you are more than welcome to try. The way the track is being built , there are some short cuts. These dont use the larger jumps designed for 1/8. This way we can run 1/8 and 1/10 cars.
There will be a few of us on site today (and tomorrow if the weather is good), so pop down and have a go.

Hope this helps
