Believe me when I say.....IT WILL NOT STAY AS GRASS!!

We have been through that here with a track already.
The track was at newcastle in grounds that housed greyhounds and pigeons.
They were also told the same thing from the council..MUST REMAIN GRASS.

1 day of running on there opening tore the grass to shreds and produced huge holes everywhere.
Most weekends were spent filling in holes and appeasing the neighbours because of the dust..(Stupid Pigeons)

After about 6 months the council told them they couldn't run until all the grass had grown back.
There was a huge shit fight over this track and in the end, they said "f*** it" and closed up.

They had a Huge sponsor in Frontline Hobbies and had AMB timing and all.

Just couldnt please the council or neighbours, unfortunately.

Ok, Not trying to sound negative, but if you think a grass track is "good" because there is less dirt.
Well, you are wrong!
1 day racing will destroy a track more than you can imagine.

Anyway just something to think about, is all.

I hear both sides but at this stage this is the way they want it to go and every 2nd week racing at this stage, Things will change i am sure but this is the path they went for and how they want it done. There is no budging on it at this moment beleve me i tried. We are lucky they went for it and have been very very generous and helpfull so i was not going to get into a shit slinging match with them over it, i would like to keep them on the helpfull side of things.

All looks good to me! I agree that you don't want something to simple, but all god whichever way!

One thing to think about is if it's a grass based track and fast/ flowing marshalling could be a tad dangerous with cars that can get to speed very quickly?
