Fingers crossed we may have council response and approval on all part of the application to start building track within 2 weeks.
First part of process is all ok and approved. Now for the next department to approve plans to start building track.

Thanks

I know we all hate the council red tape, but since the track is to be located on crown land, they will make you jump through hoops to cover themselves from any liability.

I think we'd all act in a similar manner when it comes to accountability and liability, it's a pity its such a long winded process with limited time and resources available

Before anyone jumps down my throat and has a go at me, I've seen similar processes done in other council's when I've worked for them (IT guy) and they generally get low priority due to it costing council instead of them making a wad of cash from rate payers

Started marking out the track lay out and fence line with Sam, will finish it off on Tuesday.
Boy it feels great to see something happening.

If the pics work out I will post them up.
Hope to have the clay starting to be delivered this week.

Well with all the behind the scenes stuff taken care of by Colin ( mouse28 ) the club now has a permanent land site, fencing approved, fence funding and clay approved to get the ball rolling, We have spent the last few days getting the track layout marked out on the site so that the clay can be delivered as close to possible to the positions of the jumps saving a lot of hard labour, the clay should start arriving this week, wahoo we are under way.


The current track design has a nice wide open style to assist all the novice guys to help them get experience with there nitro/electric 1/8th scale rc cars, as the club grows so can the track size and layout, we have made sure that there is also a good amount of space between each racing section as the site is open for public to use all year round once we get the fencing in place and the clay spread into jumps, table tops, berms and so on, so we will keep you posted when we are all systems go.

Well here is photos of the layout transferred onto the ground at the property via 18 cans of marking paint so that people can call past and have a look with there own eyes as to how the track will flow and so that the trucking guys know where to drop each load of clay at the property making our life a little bit easier, so dust of the shovel, rakes and wheel barrows as there will be working bees announced in the near future where as many hands will make much easier work of what needs to be done so we can all start enjoying the site.


1. The front straight and the pit entry




2. The first turn at the end of the straight and the pit exit




3. The first 180 degree turn which will have a cambered berm




4. The second 180 degree turn heading to the step up area




5. The drop off onto the back row and big jump




6. The 180 degree turn onto the rhythm jumps section



7. The 180 degree turn onto the jump over the table top and then turn onto the straight




8. The pit exit of the racing line to avoid obstruction of cars on the track






So this is where it is up to today, sorry I missed you all last Sunday but family matters kept me away from attending to meet all of you, cheers Savage Sam

Its been a long time coming but the EMCC crew have put in a lot of hard work behind the scenes, I hope that we get plenty of helpers to assist getting this club off the ground and into a very strong position so that the site can grow, drivers stand, on site power, toilet block, undercover pits, bigger faster track layout with lots of big jumps, piping and most of all a strong membership base for years to come, cheers
