Took the Hulk around again today after a tank full of petrol on the blower, much better flow from the esses to the step-down now, you get a lot of speed out of the left hand corner before the old tabletop and can fly over the step up, so much so that the Hulk floated with the wind under it!

Not sure on the second straight chicane, quite drivable by yourself, not sure with nine other Stockies racing for the start of the esses though...suppose we'll find out on Sunday!

The new straight down to the fence works great, the car is quite easy to see and makes the hairpin back into the old section much sharper, should be interesting to see what lap times are produced throughout a days racing.

The rain may or may not grip it up nicely, yet to see...should be quite racable on Sunday...see ya then

Paul, after you guys left I continued running through the rain. It went from a RB5 track to a B4 track as it rained, WATER plus lots of cars will create a magic clay groove. It's tempting to give up the bike for the weekend and come and race.

Nothing has been planned as yet at Knox. There are a few meetings at Keilor.

Some people would appreciate the break and others would like to race.
Its hard to please everyone!!

Default love the new layout

Awesome work people I love the new layout .Should encourage line choice or carnage on the repositioned curb into corner on the entry to the esses ( I will call it corner 3 )
you managed to keep the flow of the track and yet make it a bit more technical sorry I couldn't make it family down from interstate as a Xmas thing
