How would a temporary offroad track necessarily translate to a positive reception for a permanent onroad track?

Apples to oranges, IMO.

As Hangar 30 has proven thus far, "If you build it, they will come."
how much did it cost to build the hanger, and who did you ask for the money?
it is apples to oranges, there are way more apples out there then oranges, your post goes along with what i was saying, the city will say a track full of bashers and say, ok sure why not, it will be the bashers that show up everyday, not the racers. and to farther the point, our beloved SIR even tried selling off road kits
