It will be. Ideally John could do with a bit more time and a decent bit of rain. But nobody knows the track better than him. Hopefully this new stuff will bind a lot better. In an ideal world this needs doing mid season and in October. It should ride an awful lot better. John was also responsable for the track in the 0-4 World cup at poole. It was a shame he retired in 0-12..

Well there's plenty of thunderstorms kicking around on Monday so....

I know nothing about track preparation just a load of shale on the floor stuck together somehow and blokes race around on bikes like they do at the millenium stadium for the Grand Prix and if i am not mistaken that seems ok i may be wrong but as that is a temporary track just loads of trucks turn up dump their load and it is stuck together why can't Poole do the same,what is so difficult if you can turn a rugby ground into a racing track what is stopping Wimborne Road from having the same,

I mean in fairness they have down the years had difficulty with the temporary tracks rutting and holes appearing, but in recent seasons seem to have got producing a decent racetrack down to an art - but very different material used for the indoor tracks to that of one that lives outside exposed to the elements - the material they use for the temp indoor tracks wouldn’t work in the same way in a permanent outdoor setting.

i’m not excusing poole’s track it’s frankly been atrocious for years and years now and could easily have been made better, but don’t think the temporary indoor tracks are a good or fair comparison it’s quite different

The issue is the base. Cardiffs track is laid on a hard flat surface. The Wimborne road track has an uneven base so it doesn’t matter how much shale is pit on, it doesn’t solve this issue. 

We’ll soon see if the track problems have been sold on Thursday night.
