The first new horse racetrack in Victoria, Australia since 1965 is quickly approaching completion. The Packenham Racetrack in Tynong will feature an all natural turf track reinforced with StaLok Fiber.
According to Turfmate, "The ERS is a system that exclusively uses StaLok ® fibres as a reinforcement system. The polypropylene fibres are blended into the top 150mm of sand together with amendments such as fowl manure, lime and turf starter fertiliser. From there, the washed turf goes straight on top of the sand base so that the roots will work their way through the matrix of fibres and it holds the whole surface together."
