Bathurst Pit building progress

Have been having a bit of a play with my new digicam and took a panned shot of the pit lane, its not that great quality but you get a general idea:

Filesize is ~400kb

Have more pics to come, just have to sort them out first.

Re: Bathurst Pit building progress

i doubt it is on time, it was ahead last i heard, but that was a long time ago now, I suspect that with all the rain and bad weather we have had recently that it has fallen behind, I suspect that this is why they are only building upwards at the first half of pit lane, they are focussing on getting half of it complete to be used for the races, rather than having a lot of it incomplete and not being of any use at all.
