Thanks to everyone for another great day at Yelling where the atmosphere is always fantastic, well worth all the travelling


Great video Lee, can I borrow it for the CHORC site please?

The G+'s that did break seamed to break more because they hit the floor than other cars, maybe covering the floor with bubble wrap would make a nice soft landing for them

On a serious note maybe all that is needed is a substantial barrier all the way around so they stay off the floor?

QUOTE (montoya1 @ 30 Dec 2011, 13:02) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>It looks to me as if the car damage issue was exacerbated by barriers that the cars could all too easily go over, and even under. Higher hard barriers, perhaps lined with something, curved to match the track would of been the order of the day. An apron on the outside of the track about one lane width, to which the barriers could be attached so that the guy in the outer lane can't lean on them, plus some clear barriers on the inside of the turns would of contained the cars.

Maybe the answer would have been to put the table tennis all the way round the tables and taped to the table edge? As long as they're pulled tight they should be high enough and cars couldn't go under if they were taped down.

That was the fun bit trying to look ahead and avoiding those that had come off; it even worked at times

Ovals are good for a one off event, maybe once at most twice a year. The oldy Nascar's looked really good on the oval though, Lee's video really picked that up well
