Dec 2015: Hampton Downs Construction Update

Progress is steaming on at an amazing rate at Hampton Downs.

Hampton Downs Construction Update

The pit lane has been graced with a splash of colour giving it a real sense of vibrancy. The comments received from the NZV8 TC teams recently were fantastic and everyone is extremely excited to see the changes and improvements that are underway and near completion.

The ‘old’ Timing Hut will shortly be removed, allowing the Fosters Construction crew to fit the windows and complete the podium on the new Race Control building. The guys from Nautech Electronics have been onsite installing a new timing loop, Start-Finish light gantry with an LCD display screen as well as some additional circuit CCTV cameras.

The earthworks for the track extension are flying with the team at BWC Earthworks making great progress with the new layout meaning that over the Christmas break lime stabiliser can be applied meaning that one step closer to being able to turn a wheel on the new section of track. A video of the track will soon be posted on Facebook.
