Remember he said concerts. You could get that money back just in t shirt sales when Taylor Swift performs after the Petit Lemons race.

If 100 of us put in $200/ month we could pay for a 30 year loan.

Hopefully revenue could pay for part of that as well, but just saying... $200/month for almost unlimited track access... I'd do it

When was the last concert there. Where are the garages. It would have potential if they finished adding on to it. Not 4.5M potential. What is TWS asking price in comparison?

If memory serves I thought TWS was selling for the $4-5M range too. Then would be worth eleventy bazillion dollars once the housing development goes up... :rolleyes:

If TWS is 4-5M, then GSS sure isn't.

Sorry, but GSS is a craphole.  It's a fun little track to play around on, would be a great kart track.  But a "race track" it is not.  Never has been, never will be.

I would laso be concerned about the zoning rules of the area.  The people out there call the cops on you if you put a wheel on the track before 8am or after 5am.  There's a reason for that, and I would assume that it's a noise/zoning thing preventing legal use of the facility outside those hours.   obviously this is rumor and innuendo, but for the way the folks out there act, I'm betting there's a pretty legit reason for the scrict enforcement.

 

If that's the case, that means the track really can't expand, can't host proper races, no nighttime concerts, etc because of noise ordinances and/or grumpy neighbors.  I'd never pay $1MM for it, let alone $4.5MM.

It doesn't really make a great kart track either. When the Tx Sprints went there for the first time a few years ago the races were determined more by who drafted the best instead of who drove the best. Karts haven't been back since AFAIK. Not to say I wouldn't love to turn a few sub 1 minute laps in a shifter there. But I think the idea someone else mentioned to make it into a RallyCross track is the best one by far.

gotcha.  I wonder about putting a chicane or two on the two long straights for the karts to reduce the drafting effect.

 

Not that I'd be willing to risk $4.5MM that I don't have to try it...  I would otherwise think it would be great for karts-- it's narrow enough that you can't get two cars around it easily, but wide enough that a couple karts could have fun fighting it out..  ???

:cool:

 

Rallycross is the only way to go for that place.

 

Here are the steps:

- Prepare a draft of the project: the layout will have asphalt (already there) and dirt setup with jumps.

- Make a call to RedBull, Monster, etc

- Make a call to supermoto/motocross groups

- Make a call to the Austin group who does rally (Brianne something)

- Buy and build 4 Subaru STis (whatever 4wd car) in Rallycross spec

- Start a rental / school business (dirt fish school anyone?)

- Smoke a cigar.


Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you. Rollover is when you wished there was a wall.

Some pictures and wording on their site alludes to it being smooth.   

 

Did they resurface this track?

It's been a couple years since I was there, but it used to be smoother than COTA. The paddock, on the other hand, was last repaired during WWII.
