GFX Raceway is coming along well due to all the nice weather we've had and hard work completed.

The track doesn't need much to be ready to use. I'm hoping you can come out and help.

To Do List:
  • Water the track (always needed on going)
  • Roll/ Pack the track down with Roller and lawn tractor (on going)
  • Install Tubing
  • Install the boards after the straight away going up the hill
  • Install Railing on Driver's Stand

Then we're ready to use the track  8)  and practice schedule will begin.

Future To Do List:
  • Install Lights
  • Install second Driver's Stand
  • Build/Find a frame to hold the mosquito netting over both driver's stands
  • Find something suitable to walk on for the pit floor (maybe old astro turf or?)

I have a big list of my own things to do around the house that need to get done this weekend.   ::) Hopefully you have more spare time then me and can help tackle something off the list?

PS. I tried the track for a battery the other day and it has a nice flow to it. nothing too technical other than the big double.   :)  I think we'll have some good racing soon! Looking like Hole Shots or DD's would work well for tires.

Thanks Fred but no thank you we have more tubing then we need but thanks for thinking of us.

Today i tested an area with a natural weed killer, vinegar and soap and had decent results 5 hours later.  Dried up and easier to get rid of. I will spray the rest of the track this week.

Brian and Noah came out to finish the tubing, looks great!  DS helped move lumber and found a huge rock in the racing line... good find. Out and patched.  8)

We had 5 min of rain after they left so I rolled the track tonight. I think it's time for the lights Emanuel. I was out there till 10:30pm and more lights would help.  ;)

I will take a picture tomorrow.
I'll update the to do list above.  We're almost there  :o   ;D
