Just continually trying to improve things , making it in such a way to enable us to enjoy exciting and thrilling speedway . The track was too one line last season , the aim is to have a track that riders of both sides can attack and give the paying public the type of speedway to do justice to it's surroundings . No point having Chris Harris and not giving him the track to entertain us .

Given the closeness of the track to the outside fence and fan areas, are they taking the inside kerb in and taking the corners in off the football pitch. The main problem area to me is the third bend entrance, followed by the exit out of the second bend.

Both are better than they used to be anyway . At one time you feared riders would disappear through the pits gate on bend 2 , and the third bend bump wasn't too much in evidence last season , nor was the bend as square . 

But you cant stand still and the track has plenty of improvement needed . The football club no longer calls the tune at Ashfield , so I imagine their pitch will be quite a bit narrower after the track work is complete .

The track is/was the biggest weakness in our set up. If we get this right it could transform the whole experience. Ftg speedway doesnt encourage new fans or some existing fans to return. Looking forward in anticipation

Thanks George. I've just finished looking at them. Obviously the inside line is not being taken in that much, as the trenches are for the new drains but still be a few feet off.

Taken in as much as possible, pitch has to be within regulation size.

Yes, and the corners have to be permanent for the corner kicks. You can see the trench is inside the real inside line, by seeing how much of the actual corners have been lifted. All will have to go back on to preserve the corner.

Yes, if left unattended in the microwave,,, size and wattage should also be taking into consideration.
