HAREWOOD VENUE IMPROVEMENTS

Over the winter we are carrying out more improvements to the venue. The marshals post at Quarry Corner has been extended to give better vision and more protection to the marshals. The main work has been in improvements to the timing results and telephone communications, with a complete re-wiring of all communications cabling. Following trenching and ducting works by contractors, a small band of volunteers has now laid communication cables from the control office in the barns, to the timekeepers office at the Start Line, and then up to the Results Office in the Paddock. These will ensure better transmission of data and hence quicker results production. Additionally we have replaced our on-site telephone cables. Thanks are due to the organisers of this major project, David Clay for data cabling and Richard Hardcastle for telecommunications and their team of volunteer helpers.
