Looks more like a sport dog run. Look at the obstacles. I'd say this is definitely not a future RC track.

Looks like for now its just for Intel employees but it may be open to a small group of "civilians" if accompanied by an employee.

These days, unfortunately, assume not. In OR, you can run 1/8th at the track near Medford that you can get more info on in the OSS thread and Santiam Hobbies in Lebanon. You would otherwise need to go north of Seattle to find anything else. There is a track being built that will run 1/8th out by Prineville but it's been a one-man work in progress this year.

They've been racing on it for two years now. However, from what I understand, it is likely to be downsized to make a better 1/10th track next season and to free up some parking after they lost a lot of area they used to use to park cars.

There is a thread for it here: SANTIAM HOBBIES/RACEWAY THREAD

that'd be more sensible anyways, seeing how the 4x4 1/10 scale class seems to be growing anyways.
