Bathurst Track Resurfacing
Hey guys, having just come from a few laps of the mountain I have noticed that the BCC are doing a terrible job of the resurfacing. The actual track itself is fine, but it's once you get towards the edged of the circuit that this all turns to sh*t. I pity the fools who put a wheel off the edge of the circuit in any area because they left a drop off of about 2 inches to the grass at the side. They have tried to fix this by putting dirt and grass up against the side of the track but it is not working, it is soft as all hell and you sink in and create a hole wherever the wheel touches it. I think we weill be seeing a lot of cut tyres at the races this year because of the innocent looking track edges that will decintegrate on touch. These have been attempted to have been fixed for a while and I originally though it would improve, bit if anything it has been getting worse.
It will be interesting to see if anything is done to rectify this before the race, but it seems the council is quite happy to finish off the circuit edges in the same fashion as currently described above instead of doing the whole lot properly.
Maybe the teams wiull get to know this and complain before it is too late.
