Combined Districts Karting Club

Track Re surface update

The track re surface is scheduled to take place straight after our race meeting on Sunday February 19. This will disrupt the availability of the track for a few weeks and we will need some help from our members to try to make this happen in the most efficient and economical way.

Below is a timetable and the work needed to be done in each period, if you are able to help with any of these tasks of can organise someone to do a job please let me know. All jobs will have to be done within the timeframes listed to minimise downtime at the track . I am in the process of organising contractors to do the kerbs etc but if we can avoid having to pay commercial rates for some of these thing the club will be in a much better place.

The re surface will cover the complete race track (not the cut through), the entrance to the in grid (about 10 metres short of tyre barrier), all of the out grid (everything under the roof) and the side of the out grid (canteen side that is currently gravel)
