Here's a very crude approximation of the track layout as it will be plowed. It's about 200m x 150m and very flexible in how we lay out the actual course. Figure on 800m to 1km course layouts, with laptimes between 1:30 and 2 minutes.



Also, current snow conditions in the area can be seen here:

As of December 31st there's 21" of snowpack up there!

Just heard from Ross, the track is plowed now, 4-6' snowbanks on the outsides of corners and 2' on the insides. They did it rough with the loader first, and now the town guy is coming back with the blade on it to smooth things out, etc. Things are very soft still because the frost never got in the ground before the big snowfall at Pines, but the warm temps, rain and then cold again we're going to get will serve to firm everything up. Once it turns cold again, everyone hope for snow that we can pack down and make the track perfect!

Preview picture!



Ross took this shot very early in the plowing process, much of the track that is in the background is not yet plowed (though you can see some of the stakes and tape we used to denote apexes). Hopefully they don't get too much rain up there over the next couple days and some of that packed snow freezes into a nice ice base and then we get some good snow on top!

Alright folks, here's the deal. Below are the current track conditions. As you can see, things are certainly less than they were, but usable. The forcast is calling for more snow up there over the rest of the week, but we're still not really going to have big snowbanks, etc. We're trying to make a decision if the event should go or not, because so far we only have 7 entries. So, we're going to put it out to you guys. After seeing these pics, if we get some more entries lined up then we'll be a go (we need a minimum 12-14 to make it worth while), otherwise we'll postpone this event until February 3rd and hope we still have snow in early March for a third event.

So, get your entries in here: http://www.oldrallysport.on.ca/rallycrossentry.html
