And so close to BP. :(
 
Will the two tracks compete for the same small customer base?

I see the beginnings of some serious series racing... SoCal now has a triple threat.

Things are on the move now. New location has been painted, carpet is in, and lighting in place. Today we moved the track in and Gary Gerding arrives this evening to start his processes.

Mike,

Will GT12s and Euros be the only classes running? How about Retro inline? [Can-Am]. Just wondering...

That one would be worth a trip to sunny SoCal (for Retros of course)... :clapping: 

I think drivers right to left along the main straight would be a good direction.
