Also would love to have a USVTA class as the real deals used to run Lime Rock Park only about an hour and 15 mins. from here.The size of the entire fenced area also limits track size we are working with an area that is 200'x80' the size of an ice rink. I wanted to try and cover as much of the hobby as possible and 3 1/10th scale size tracks covers that. Not to say if we had to reconfigure something for maybe 1 show that would be something we would definatly consider.Thanks for your intrest hope you can support us when we open.
I drove by Sugar Hollow a few weeks ago.....the pavement is still there.

Looking forward to racing. I have not raced in Bethel since...I think the JRX-2 was the big deal buggy.

BTW, those vintage cars still run at LRP.

We are going to have a vintage dirt oval class if you think there is enough intrest we can do it for off road also. The Sugar Hollow track was nice but under all the storage sheds the track is all cracked and grass and weeds all growing through awesome place when it was running draw 20-25 guys for a Wed. night show.

I never raced on the paved track, just the offroad. I didnt see any trace of the offroad track, just sheds everywhere.

Any idea when racing will start?

We are hoping to start racing middle to end of April . The town still has to move some stuff. we may not have pit tables done yet,and have to get an appointment with light company but we can work around that.As soon as the town stuff is gone we will start building the tracks I will post here when that starts.

just to let everyone know had 50 tons of clay delivered today for the dirt oval part of the racearena. It looks like the first 2 tracks to be done will be the dirt oval and the on road part,only because the skate ramps are in the way of doing the off road track. As soon as they are moved we will start the off road track. Any questions just leave me a post.

Pretty much stock and mod touring would also like to have a vintage trans am class if you have any other ideas let me know not sure what else any one is running but I am open to sugestions.Just would like to keep it 1/10 scale electric to start we are trying to draw more intrest in the hobby and that is the least expensive for any new looking to start.

you should try and use the skate ramps in the layout of the off-road!!!! Easy to say without seeing them.

Sounds like a great venture, good luck - looking forward to it.

Oh man, that's creative. Yeah, that could work. Wouldn't have thought of that.

TCS type racing used to draw a big crowd in a track in the area which closed.

Default Mike is on the move.

Hey scott, that guy might be on to something with those skate ramps. Well just the table top that is still sitting there(I hope). Those others(The half-pipes) maybe can be used as the high side of a banked turn!?!?? Can you get me the dimensions of the off-road area as I would love to start drawing up some track layouts? Configurations wont be crazy. I remember what you said about novice to intermediate, SC classes and such.
