I'll admit, this past CF location in BG was ideal for the convenience of all the activities. It's easy to see why everyone likes the location, and I did have a great time! I just don't know if I would do it again next year, it was an 11-1/2 hour drive for me, which was quite a haul. Personally, I wish it was going to be in Valdosta again, or yes, Sebring would be VERY cool too, but that's purely based on my location.

Our ideal is to book a single hotel & have 1500 Camaros parked in the lot each night. Places that can only accommodate say 200 of us at a time & force us to spread out are a lot less desirable. And if we can't stay at 1 place, how close are the overflow hotels?

Then there are the tracks themselves. We need to be able to do drag racing, auto-x, a car show, and vendor alley at the same time and we'd like to do it within a fairly compact zone. That limits the places we can actually go to do a fest.
Agreed, you have to have the infrastructure, BG is perfect for that. I was pointing out that it also is close to the majority of the population of the US as a bonus.

Smartest thing to do is have it in Ontario, Canada.
It would be silly to consider anything else

Much as i'd love that location you have major hurdles now that you can't just enter Canada with a driver's license like you could way back. This would likely kill attendance to unacceptable levels right out of the starting gate.
