Big thanks to the guys who turned up to help out at the weekend...they know who they are and how much work they put in.
The finish straight had approx. 22 holes dug out to a solid edge and filled back in with concrete. One tonne of ballast and several bags of cement got used really quick. A few of these holes were proper rim smashers and lets face it there ar'nt many people who would want to spend a weekend away getting their rims smashed. Most were just crumbling edges but by sorting them out we've hopefully caught em before they cause damage.
Another session planned soon (when all the flash gits get back from their away day in Thpain) probably on the straight that run parallel to the finish.
The work done by NORA over the years and the further repairs planned has got to make even the harshest critic of Blyton reconsider their opinion of the place......but there will always be those that prefer to complain.
Thats all gents.....for now.
great work biscuit
let us know when you plan to go again we will be there

Don't be such a pussy Phil.
The cross over has a jump in both directions, so in theory if two riders approach the "eight" at the same time, one should manage to jump over the other, well as long as one ducks.
Great work chaps, Blyton is my local track (40 miles away) and enjoy watching as many times as possible. Even though I feel terribly guilty about not diving in to give you a dig out, I can still appreciate a hard days work from which I can benefit, so ta muchly.
Just one thought though...
Do you have to be a mallard or an eider to avoid collision?
to all those who made up the working party.....
thanks for putting the effort in ... its appreciated...
Good effort Dave + Gang. Keep up the back breaking work.
Looking forward to the first track day to test your work. I would be there to help if i lived nearer, honest.

thought you were building some jumps???
They re just the appetiser Superstar. The BIG jump will be on the run back to the track. I did have a top racer lined up to help......
We've got until the middle of June for everyone to stick their oar in.

Looks excellent, if you need any more help with the tarmac you have my number, equally if some track prep before the round is required i dont mind spending a friday down there before the race weekend.
You have my number!

Yup for sure!
One thing we did nt realise was just how many loose stones would get brought up to the surface by the work so there's going to be a few sessions of "fodding" before riders can have a blast.
I am actually pleased with the layout and on a pit bike its superb!. Thing is until it gets ridden AND more importantly raced on we wont know!
We have tried to build a track that riders will want to ride - with different lines to allow passing and provide action for the spectators. Still to build is a table top on the run back to the tarmac and that will take another couple of weekends to complete at least.
We were hoping to get it looking a bit smarter as well prior to the pre season NORA race this Sun so if you do go for a look be optimistic.
Finally any comments and ideas you have on the work so far come and see me. Ask around the paddock and eventually someone will point me out but if all you offer is ideas dont expect them to happen. Question 20 riders how to build a track and you'll get 30 answers cos half of them cant make up their minds. However tell me you have a 360 excavator and dumper plus drivers for a weekend and you'll get my full attention.

maybe it started to get too political about who can ride it and who can't, anyway looks a lot better than what was there before, hopefully it won't turn into a swimming pool when it rains, would be good covered in that lime stuff they have on other off road bit.
build a big table top like lydd. the blyton sky zone.
