Phew, good thing I got the chance to drive on the track through Dave's event last year. Is this for real or temporary?

Ya sucks to see it go, lots of good times there. The town had been fighting and suing the owner for years. I guess something had to give. What I don't understand is that its been a ****ing airport since WWII?! So the planes are silent?

Everyone with this not in my backyard BS...don't move there then.

Definitely a huge blow to the car scene.

The track owners/managers are having a "farewell lapping day" for Jon Kuiper, a former track manager.


To sign up you can call the track directly and ask about the farewell event.

Ya Jon was the ish! Went lapping with him a few times in the Rosuh Mustang they had, he taught me some cool stuff along the way.

That's bullshit, I'm going to call the owner to see if there is anything we can do. We used to have such a great amount of tracks & variety around here. Like 5 within 2 hours!!! (if you include DDT separate)

They don't even have that many close-by in LA. Its like 3 within 3 hours.

I'm pissed, Dunnville residents are gays.

^^Agreed............... Although I always found Dunnville too hard on brakes and tires, given many straights connected by slow turns, I loved having the variety. I do prefer it over TMP by miles, so sad to see one bite the dust. If you need a name on a petition, I'll be first in line to support it.
