Default Changes to Oswestry Radio Car Club Track

We have been doing some work at the track to improve the corner at the end of the straight. The wooden boards are being replaced by a taller breeze block wall which will support a banked curve. We have also dug a footing for a wall between the main straight and the lighting pole, which will allow us to build a raised section similar to that at Kidi. All changes will be completed by the start of April when we go back outside to race...

Looks good. Is that track going to be the national track or is that grass one like usual?

I'd think they're going to use them to create the basic shape of the rasied areas. I've seen it done before somewhere, but can't remember where exactly.

Might be wrong though, it has been know.

Right then my mum showed a bit of leg to a farmer and we now have about 2 1/2 tons of soil dumped by the portacabin and we have 35 tyres pilled on the track.

Dont worry, no tyres will be visible... tyres are against BRCA track design rules

We would obviously have liked to have the National on our permanent track but at only 650m2, this track is too small for a National and the limited access would make driver change-overs very difficult.
