New places are fun to go to, but I have to say things are easier to deal with when your familiar with your surroundings as well.

Texas should be fun ! hope I can make it again next year !

Im happy where ever it is, couldn't make indy 2 years in a row, but will be at texas next year! I do have a suggestion though I love the phoenix idea.... LOL

Rocky Mountain Raceway - http://www.rmrracing.com/

Drag strip, autocross area (east of the oval track), vendor area (why not just set them up in the oval on the grass and leave the track/tarmac for foot traffic), and car show on the other side of the drag strip...

Add in that its probably not that expensive...

Not sure on hotel/accommodations though didn't look around that much.. but im sure SLC has something...

Add in that its pretty "central" to the west coast!

If the event gets big enough places will want us to come. Revenue for the city and all will be a selling point. But, we have to get the attendance #s.
This is the #1 reason why college football bowls want Alabama because we as fans travel and sell the place out.

I am just glad you announced the location and time of next year's Fest at this year's event. I think you should try to do that every year. It gives us all a chance to work it into our schedules for next year. Thank you.

From my door step to Houston I'm looking at 750 miles which is not bad. Petty much a straight shot through I10. Heck it was a longer drive to Indy this year

Z-max speedway in Charlotte North Carolina. Think of how awesome it would be to do a four lane drag race

Sweet. Not sure how much the track rental would be but that would be a pretty cool place to have it. The area around it is pretty large so I'm sure there is space for a camarocross also.

Memphis has a nice 1/4 mile track and an autocross track. Pretty centrally located with plenty of hotel space and lots to do downtown. And of course Graceland!

Circuit of the Americas for a future FEST. We would need some assistance from GM as the track rental is about $40,000 a day and worth every penny.



GM can introduce the 6th Gen here. I'm sure the drag strip will be built by then... I have assigned MLEE to get it done. We can start at turn 5 and finish at turn 13.



Now that I have done all the ground work I'll turn it over to Mr. Wyndham, GTAHVIT, Killer and company to flesh out the details.
