The upgrades to the Carrick Speedway catchfence have nearly been completed, with only the fitting of the mesh required to finalise the job.
The poles from turn two right through to pit gate have been extended, and the top cable has been attached most of the way.
The fence upgrades were required to allow the track to meet current safety requirements, and will see the track be able to put on bigger and better events.
CSDA President Keith Blair has expressed his gratitude to all those who have helped out.
"We got more done in two days than we usually would of done in five weeks" says Keith. "The amount of people coming to help us out has been greatly appreciated."
Plans are in place to atttach the mesh to the poles ton the weekend of June 18th and 19th
"We haven't got far to go" says Keith. "but the final jobs will require a lot of hands on deck to make the job easier. The weather for this week isnt looking good, and our annual dinner is the following week, so we will strive to do it the weekend after that."
If you can assist with the installation of the wire, and can spare a few hours that weekend, we'd love to see you at the track. Work will commence from 8:30am both days.
