I think the delay with Alleycat added to the disheartening of the day as well. That program needs a rocket up its a$$. Why cant we use the American RC Scoring one (or whatever its called) or do we have to be uniform with the other clubs?

The surface, isnt as good as some of the other clubs, but i think it helps you become a better driver, and more cautious on tuning your car, as it cant just be dialled in every other day of the week, it does change regularly, but this maybe what other drivers are not happy with, not having a consistant tune. Im not pointing fingers at any of the other clubs members here, but i think they are used to having a flatter track, a not-so-offroad type of surface. I do think our track may need attention before the State Titles, or we may find some clubs might boycott the weekend. Either way, i was happy with it. Alleycat, not so happy with it. Makes the day longer and more stressful for Race Control and drivers waiting to run with this program failing each meet.

Cheers
Judging by some of the lap times posted in the results, it cant have been too bad.

The build day will MOST likely be sweeping the track clean, and could be fixing up the astro grass. But bring your car/SCT . I want to race some one who is my own age,. You got a 2 or 4 wheel drive.

I think it will be more than just a sweep and check of the astro turf. We have to prepare it for the State Titles in 2 weeks. In saying that im away this weekend in Orange for a doo, so i wont be able to make it sorry guys.

Cheers

Track work this weekend is major so don't bother bringing cars along, we will have some for testing but we are ripping up a substantial section of track so there won't be much practice done.

Be prepared for some hard work as there is a lot of digging to be done. We will have a couple of jackhammers available but if anybody has something similar please feel free to bring them along.

I will hopefully be starting demolition on Friday afternoon, if anybody can help it would be appreciated, but check with me first as it is dependent on when the equipment can be delivered.

Tyres will be available some time Saturday at the track.
