This morning members of both Sandwell and Birmingham came out of the winter hibernation to start work on cleaning, fixing and just freshening up the track and facilities at the Lower City Road site.
Brian Buck has been looking after the facility but due to the awful weather of late track maintenance had to be looked at. Another main area was the drainage which for a track that has not been used regularly and so not maintained as often as a league club, it was in good condition.
Birmingham will be racing in the Elite League at the former home of Sandwell Lions with the Monarchs opening their campaign at home to Sheffield.
A big thank you for everyone who turned up today to help at the track as alot was done but there is still a little more to do with the terracing, pits and fencing needing a lick of paint.
