If all of TN chips in 200 dollars the track would be ours..

That said considering we have 20,000 members who are active and willing to send money in to a raceway a majority of them will never visit. :) :lol:

That'd be soo tight. :D

Yea, it's a pretty mixed course. It would have been nicer if they would have had a 1/4 mile drag strip instead of a quarter midget course.

:D

could be a future undertaking of mine later in life.

well first you gotta find a plot of land...

A) Large enough to suit your design
B) In an area that allows for the noise + stuff
C) In an area that needs a track so you will make some money
D) Once you have actually bought the land (thats 150 to 200 G's) you have to pay for all the paving (and thats EXPENSIVE) not to mention then endless hours of prepping the land for a track AND the actual design for the track


lets just say for a track you better be able to invest at least a Mil, at least.

haha, lets all just buy property, build condos and a tn race track in the middle

of course a drag strip also
Your straight just needs to be long enough for a 1/4 mile track with room to slow down, then you can have road course and drag together :D

I've thought a bit about the feasability of building a track (mainly so I can have a place to drive, but also to make money ;) )

As I see it, you've got a significant initial outlay for things listed already, such as purchase, paving, etc. You also may need to deal with zoning problems, permits, that sort of thing.

Once you have everything purchased and legal, you STILL have to lay out a significant chunk for insurance. And depending on ordinances and insurance, you may have to pay to have medical staff on hand. Even if you have a waiver of liability, you still need to cover for property damage and liability.

As well, you've got utilities and normal upkeep.

So you really have to make sure you're in the right market to be able to even stay afloat... Tracks nearby to me charge quite a bit for useage, typically in the thousands of dollars for 6 hours or so. Even with high rates like that, I still wonder how they stay afloat.


btw, siver... I really like your sig :thumbup:
