Was down runnin some new gear in at the track today with a mate & i had the camera with me so i thought I'd post some pics up for the rest fo the world to see

This is the main track, nice layout & good flow & heaps of variation from inside to outside lanes, it's runnin real nice at the moment in this weather but it's gettin a re-paint - braid in a few months time anyway......

Lookin over the 1/32 track, cant quite see it all here but u get the idea, ill take more pics at racin on Tuesday casue my card was playin up in the camera. Watched some real close tight racin on this track last week...........

Colin workin on the new 1/24 track he is buildin, it's up to painted stage & this track will be for hard body 1/24 cars like Nascars etc no flexi's will be on this track to keep it in good nik, will also be the party hire track, this corner will be the party area u can see in the background, table soccer etc shoudl be good when its all done!

That top track almost looks like a reverse of the Kingleman ar Mobile raceways in Dandenong. Though its missing the kink before the donut on the inner straight. Reckon it might of been the same bloke that built it however.

Here are some pics of the Drag strip and some cars at Chequered Flag Raceway S.R. Thanks for passing along the info to Colin about racing in August , he phoned today and is keen to come over with a few WA slot racers to pit their skill against the SA racers , money allowing of course its not like its a 20 minute drive in the car from Maddington W.A. to Adelaide :)

They are flying if they do make it to Adelaide for August , the airport security get a weird look on their faces when the see the slotcar boxes go through the xray scanner , suppose an electronic controller would look odd to someone that wasn't into slotcars

The facility looks bloody brilliant.

Tracks to suit all racers.

When i get to WA I look forward to having a look and a few laps on these tracks.
