Default New 1/10th Track

Just a little post up about some exciting news! Our 1/10 track is finally on the go. Bare in mind we have only started work 4 days ago so please reserve judgement until it's completed. We have a fair bit of work to do mind but here are some quick snaps to show you what we have been doing.



A short video of a lap of the track

Track is mainly grass with a couple of dirt corners.

It's changed a bit since that photo was taken. The boards were too tall and were going to break cars so have been removed. These have been replaced with piping and the layout has been revised. It's all finished now and is ready to host it's first race this weekend, Sunday 13th. Gates open from 8. Please see our website for more details.

Great news, can't do this weekend but will keep an eye on the website. Do you open for practice as my 7 year old has just started racing but the lack of a local track is holding him back. Also any plans for a week night race meeting?

Regards,
James.

No plans this year for week nights I'm afraid but if the interest is there then who knows.

The track is open every Sunday so every other is a race day and the others are for practice.

Hope to see you and your lad there soon.

Links don't work, probably because it is a limited group
