Devonport (AUSTRALIA): After tendering for the replacement of all existing metal rails on their racetracks, the racing authority in Tasmania has selected Fornells heavy duty reinforced running rail with collapsible posts. The new running rail technology developed by Fornells incorporates the patented collapsible post invented by Australian racehorse trainer Ray Borg.
To combat the high UV environment in Australia , the new rail incorporates Fornells patented co-extrusion technology that protects the rail from the harsh Australian environment and can also be used to demarcate the last straight in bright colours such as red, blue or yellow.
The first Tasmanian track to receive the new rail design is the newly constructed Tapeta synthetic track at Devonport. The rail was installed in time for the opening race meeting conducted on September 4; the racing managers described the technologies employed for this new track as "cutting edge".
