    Track near Erskine Park, Sydney?

    I was in Erskine Park on Sunday, and driving down Luddenham Road I saw a guy putting his body onto his chassis (or batteries into a controller or something) and looked like he was ready to go racing.

    Anyone know what the track is there and what the story is? Open to the public? A specific club etc?

    I didnt get a good look, so didnt see any signage or anything.

    If it's the same track I am thinking about it is scale sprint car oval racing.

    They also have a baja class and I have raced there once, good fun but the heats are a little short for me.

    Are we talking large scale or just little cars?

    I may be taking going to the dog show at the Canine Centre just down the road on Sunday. If that happens I'll definitely get away for a little while and come down for a look.

    The park was closed today but we all had a bash around today, track was muddy but as the day went on it dried out and hooked up nicely.
    Only ained once all day all had a bast again.

    The open day of the last of the month is day the public can come down and see everything going at the model park. We are normally there most weekends doing some track work or having a bash around and having fun, Will put up a notice when i will be going out there.
