    New shale

    If you use a lot of clay you need good drainage. Poole has no drainage at all.

    New shale

    The shale going on a Poole is proper stuff not cheap rubbish. Its a speedway blend to our specification . The other 10% is limestone 6mm to dust. Glyn

    New shale

    Now that the weather has been a little better and things are drying out nicely I am laying down some new shale for next weeks meeting. This new material is a blend of clay and shale 70/20 20% being the clay content. This should change everything and get the racing lines back after a meeting or two to mix it up with the current surface. Glyn
  4. Just to set the record straight . I did not speak to any sponsors last night. The track is still soft in parts so it very difficult to water on such a warm and windy day.

    Thanks Starman I couldn't be there today as I had a previous engagement prior to getting the track job. Looks like it held up well I will be there tomorrow afternoon to put back into shape. Before the rain comes on Thursday night Friday morning. Glyn

    Poole 2018

    I would like to thank all the track staff, they put the air fence up yesterday which was a massive job in the conditions. The track held up ok. Needs a week of good weather to harden the surface up. The guys helping yesterday were great, a lot of knowledge so they were telling me where there are small problems with the surface that appear during a meeting. The rakers are there week in week out and see things with the track that most don't see, so working with them will be good. Glyn.

    Its not from Breadon. I don't know if I will be doing the track all season. Matt has a few things to sort out first. But I would like the job.

    They supplied the new base shale which was a 60/40 mix with is about 150mm deep and compacted. Gave a great base to work from.

    We have found a supplier of red shale who will mix it to what ever mix you want.

    It may come as a surprise to some but given the opportunity, I would be back. I have no hard feelings towards the new management. They have their reasons I guess for doing what they did though I have no clue what they are. I love Leicester, I enjoyed my time there, and was hoping I would be continuing to prepare the track this season as I felt the changes we made would make the racing so much better and that the fans would be getting the race track they deserve and have waited for. To me, it has always been about the track as at the end of the day, that is the stage that the riders entertain the fans on. Glyn

    Just for the record we took 6 meters off the inside of turns 1 and 2 this is at the apex of the turn and the new length is 300.1 meters. Glyn
