It is in Saltash on the outskirts of Cornwall .
We have been building it for the last couple months as we have had a few set backs due to rain .
Should have it finished by the end of this week ready to race on !!

The approximate dimensions of the track are 70m x 40m .
Its in a lovely location on top of a hill but sheltered all round by banks , hedges and trees .
We used over 300 tonnes of dirt to create the layout , its hard to tell from the pictures how big the elevation changes are .
All the track lanes are 4m wide or more .

Did you strip the grass first before laying down the dirt? I have three truck loads coming by the end of the week. Should I strip grass or will I be o.k. just going over it?

The site when we started building was already free from grass and dug a few feet lower than the surrounding area . If you are building a track by putting soil onto flat ground then just kill the grass after you have completed the layout . Our old venue was like this we got some industrial grass and weed killer it was quite expensive it got rid of the grass in about 2 weeks . The good thing was all the grass roots stayed inthe soil keeping the surface from breaking up .When we get the track up and running I will see if I can get someone to film me doing a couple laps in HD and put them on here .
