01/03/2018   LAKE CONDITION REPORT: Just had a phone call from Tony Cooke who with Michael Brixton, Marlo Treit and Les Davenport went to Lake Gairdner today for a final inspection.
The drove the 2 tracks for Speed Week and the 12 mile World's Speed Trials track and all were found to be in excellent condition.
We have a penotrometer that we use to test the salt each year, it wouldn't even go in!
The ramp is also looking good.
The Kingoonya-Iron Knob Road has just been recently graded and is in very good condition.
The Mt. I've road was also good as was the road to the lake.
The Target 550 boys were suitably impressed. They even went on a further 3 miles to the north on the WSTA track and it just got better.
