You could see if the changeover is abrupt or timely. Perhaps how it fits around there online diary, which is probably steered by daylight. Although I have been on there at night. In the dark. With headlights that were just pittyfully inadequate. It's just too wide. Like being sat in a carpark you can't see any end too in any direction. Until you find a curb, and use it to reorientate yourself and carry on till you find the next one. And they keep moving, It's not actually a box shaped motorway fashion outlet carpark at all. When you finally find and cross the finish line, You can't be sure if you actually lapped the track, Or just turned back again. Hopeless. Four cars fell off behind the pace car.

it is 12.5, has you may know some may be out of date now, the only one I know still in use is the 166.7625 has it been hear this year. by my self.

the 453.675 has a ctcss of 146.2. I Also have 453.450, has racing channle too. I will see if i can fine the old data base to dubble check the UHF channles

has I sead the medic team one has a carry on it all the time and other time is turbo, which wipe it out from my QTH.

If you look in the UK Scanner Directory 9th there a number of racing channles in there to for other place's.

nope 164.780 is the one i've been listening to for a couple of weeks now..
seems like marshalls or security there as they mention the gates, and also cars and bikes going in and onto the track etc.
