Description

This track provides an uphill complement to Car Parts, which it runs more-or-less parallel to. Being almost twice as long as Car Parts, this track has a more moderate gradient, making it more suitable for climbing up to the Polhill wind turbine.

Near the top, this track coincides with the section of Car Parts Extension that goes around the knob below the wind turbine car park. It then crosses the zig-zag section of Car Parts Extension that descends from an intersection with Car Parts, before continuing to climb at a reasonable gradient up to the car park.

Getting there

Starts and ends at the same places as Car Parts though opposite, since this track is uphill while Car Parts is downhill. That is:

The bottom is directly across the sealed road from where there's a gap in the fence on the Fenceline track.

The top is directly across the car park at the Brooklyn wind turbine, adjacent to the eastern end of Car Parts Extension.

Other notes

The track is now open and finishing touches are being applied. Regular track building sessions will be held each Wednesday at lunchtime see Vorb thread for more details.
