    Morning,
    Saw the post from L2D this morning about Rockingham being bought out and loosing the outer paddock, which sucks. But as they said the track has officially been shut for a long time now so it was a bonus to be able to skid there.

    A little while ago I saw a post on FB about another potential venue being developed for drifting in the Northampton area. Does anyone know any more about this? Or any info on who is working on it and how it is going?

    Thanks

    Awesome, thanks for the info.
    Looks like an oval? Hope they are able to do some good layouts using the center.

    I don't know too much about it yet I just saw it on a drift outlaw post on Instagram, but yea it does look like they will be doing different track layouts in the centre.

    Its in a place called Horton. I don't know if this helps Lesley?

    Yeah, From what I have managed to find its at Northampton oval. Looks like they are removing a lot of the banks and filling in the center pot holes in order to run layouts on the center of the oval.

    Looks like there is good potential there, hopefully it all comes good and we can have consistent events running.
