I watched about an hour of qualifying today. I must say I was quite impressed. Great work to Nicky Hayden but Rossi really pulled something out of the bag at the end. And to think they almost broke the 1min:29sec barrier!

The second week of the holidays sounds like fun but I may be busy on Monday, Tuesday and Wendeday with a tennis tournament. If I can come I will but it is quite far away and it has to suit everyone.

Thursday or Friday on the second week or late in the first week would suit me (and bastumannen) best.

If those days don't suit then it doesn't matter. I'll find a way to get to your track somehow!

When your track's finsihed I'll try and organise a social racing day. Hopefully lots of members will come along.

I'll see how I go, can't promise anything though. I hope to get the driver stations built this week, but then I gotta find something I can use for ripple strips. Then put the barriers on at the cricial sections: squeeze an onto pit straight. Have found out the hard way what happens without them. 800mm drop to concrete :D :(

Try matchsticks, glued to the track about an inch apart and then a sheet of paper glued over them and to the track between the matches. If the ripples are too high then use paddle pop sticks. Paint it all red/white, should work well.

The Missus is finishing work next week so I should be able to get there.

Gref - there's a picture of a lump in your Sig - where's that come from then? Are you finally stopping Nathan from brutally murdering Murph cars?? :o

Your track is certainly interesting Shane, you've put a lot of hours in I can see...would love to see it some time...although, you've seen me race no mag, routed wood, so I won't ask for a run!!

It only took me a whole DAY to figure out ('cause of the back "straight" - Bastard back straight!) it's a great layout though! :)
