I realize it's really late in the game, but does anybody think a club based solution could work to manage the property? I think it could use a face lift but the tracks are good.
If you had 50 people join up that paid $35/month (about 1/2 tank of gas or a gallon of Nitro) you'd cover the lease (yes, I know what it is). Those club members would then be able to drive the track whenever they wanted (sunrise to sunset) for no further fee (they'd be issued a gate key or a pass). I figure that $35 would be the same as if I drove there 3 times in a month at the current fee. If you had more members the fee could be lowered, an incentive to bring in more members.
Guests would be charged $10/day to practice and race fees would be based on the structure of the event to cover prize $$$ or trophies etc.
Do any of you see a solution like this or am I nuts?
A very important aspect is to create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. If people are put off by attitude or facilities, then it won't work.
