This is a really cool idea, but I just don't seeing it being realistic. A rally cross track would be much more realistic.

I agree....moving dirt is usually never monitored. As soon as you pour something or build something on it, Oh dear lord..

Not to mention the cost. Properly built and graded track would be in the millions. At least 10 probably more. Need the track, stand, pit/paddock, concession/bathroom, plumbing, lighting unless you plan on only running dawn to dusk. Your talking 2 miles of pavement that has to be quality. Cant race on shitty concrete. Id be making sure you can get away with it according to city,state and county ordinances and then finding investors to help foot the bill and bring in events.

So you know, Tire Rack's track covers 500,000 sq feet and is about a mile long when you measure all the pavement. And if you go with a track like the BMW performance center has, it's about the same when you total all the feet.

To give you an idea of the costs, those facilities spent close to $1.5M when all was said and done just to put down the track and skid pad areas, alone. That's just the surface, and nothing else.

If you have that kind of chedder, go for it!
