All of the parts of the old outdoor track have now been moved to the new home @ Swanmore Leisure and we are so grateful for your donations so far via our JustGiving which has really helped with the costs of transporting the track to Swanmore.
Over the last two weeks we have been busy and the rostrum has been stood up and has now been welded back up after being cut up for the move and the roof has been reinstalled. Some modifications have been done to the rostrum as the ground is slightly different. The metal work has been painted green but some of the modifications still need to be painted once we have got some more paint.
This week the track area is being scraped, covered in hardcore and lightly levelled so that we should be in a position to start laying fleece and then astroturf as well as building a perimeter fence around the track this weekend 14th and 15th September.
We still have a long way to go and many other jobs still left to do and will be at the track most weekends until it is ready to race again.
If you can help out ask to be added to the TORCH @ Swanmore “help” What’s App group or keep an eye out for events via the website and on the Facebook TORCH page posts and events. Even if you can help out just for 1 hour it makes a difference.
We are looking forward to be able to offer Sunday half day racing again as soon as possible and keep a lookout for a future post regarding this.
As we are towards the end of the summer and heading to winter our TORCH Winter Indoor series 2019 – 2020 will soon be starting and you can click here to view the calendar and book in for this series.
If you have not donated so far head over to our JustGiving page. Please consider doing this as it will enable us to make our track so much better.
