It didn't go much farther than "wouldn't it be cool if..." because none of us have several million dollars burning a hole in our pocket. Money issues aside, the site is on a flood plain next to an equestrian center. It's pretty unlikely to ever host a race again, but you can't really build anything there. Too bad, because it would make a great venue. Maybe if several clubs went in together and convinced the city it would draw loads of money to local businesses...

Joe, keep in mind that in PGC, you'll have to pay bribes to a few dozen county and city officials to get it done. Based on recent observations, most of the "leadership" there is more interested in putting money in their own pockets....

btw, I ran with CDC for years, and talked to you and Ed Chan a while back about Triumphs (I have a GT6).

I'll give you $20 to drive a few laps with a lawn tractor to see what that place is really like.

I think it would be a good venue for a rallycross :)

I work not far from there. Maybe I'll have to see if the owners would let me take a "test drive" in the e30 rallycrosser
