    I normally don't notice the leaves between turn 3 and 4 until September but they were there already during Mondays track day. Is there a chance of leaving a leaf blower with the turn 4 corner worker so they can give it a blast between races? Nothing would suck worse that losing the front from a leaf. Well, maybe losing the front from a kitten.

    A very good idea, I noticed it as well.

    Did you happen to hear/notice if one of the inflatable air fences was damaged in turn 2? Someone hit it in one of the first few sessions and it just didn't look right after that.I'm fairly sure someone went out there to re-inflate it?

    It was re-inflated after the crash, but it didn't line up with the other sections fully for the rest of the day, but it remained inflated.

    Are there any rules against a front-facing exhaust so as to clear the leaves from your path?

    just bring a leaf blower, I am sure it would get used.

    The club has a couple they use for inflating air fence. Hopefully it'll see double duty.
