Posibble New track

Postby Tom on Wed Sep 23, 2009 5:25 pm

In very very early stages, at the moment but im trying to look into creating a new track up Wentwood.
Currently in talks with WT and FC and once ive got a rough idea of the layout of the proposed track then i will be meeting them up there to see where to go from there.
Im hoping that if we do get given the go ahead then this will be a winter project and up and running next year.
If you have any comments or want to lend a hand then just post up here.

Yep, count me in, I only managed to get one morning in of chopping down bracken at the track this "summer" , and 0 hrs riding on the track since March due to rain, work and injury, so I need some serious outdoor exposure this winter! Just let me know when and where.

I was on holiday in the summer, came back for a week then dislocated my shoulder. 4 weeks later had an op on my shoulder to repair the damage and now im lokoin at december before i ride again.
Unfortunately bracken wasnt on my mind so hope it isnt a jungle up there.
Should be giving the track an overhaul and clear back as well as this project this winter after i can move my arm properly.

Ouch, that sounds nasty. How did you do that then? Roll-on December eh?!
We chopped back the bracken on the start of the open section of the track back in June or July I think. It was a bit of a jungle then. Have not seen it since though.
