So, word on the street is that Beenleigh are fixing the last straight this Saturday. Even they realise that it is dangerous and will hamper racing. Hopefully get some flow and rhythm back into it. No need to avoid that round now for the guys that were considering it !!

Yes I heard the same, The Club has been fielding comments and criticism for months on the track...but think it maybe a case of too little too late!

Nah, never too late to fix a problem, especially when it comes to something like a BMX track. They seem to have had issues with the track surface too since they sealed it. Hopefully we see some developments with the track in the near future. Beenleigh has had a great track there for so many years, just needs a bit of time and effort put into it. I am sure that there are club members there who feel the same way.

There are some on Facebook I think. Track is so good. Flows super nice and still allows for lots of different lines and combo's through the last straight. They fixed the second straight as well, and the surface is 100 times better that what it was. Gonna be a good shootout round.

Gates on Sunday afternoon if anyone is interested. Running from 3 PM. Chance to get a good ride on the freshly prepped track.

Off topic, but I see that Pine Rivers have also made some changes to their track today to make it more rideable. Good to see clubs listening to the people.
