Wow – next to a King – that black Engleman style has always been a favorite of mine.

 

Was fortunate to run on one a few times many years ago. Hope they both go to good homes.

I believe that red track is the Engleman that spent 1996-2010 in Manchester, NH. I've always been told it went to Danbury when Need for Speed closed. Over the years, we ran that track in both directions. When run backwards, it drove like a big road course. While in Manchester, it mainly saw flexis, but we ran wing cars and Eurosports on it, too.

I've emailed the seller asking about the situation with Danbury Raceway, as the Raceway List entry for the facility also shows an orange track. 

 

Wanted to know if the raceway was going to remain open with just the one track or if it had already been sold. If anyone knows, please chime in.

Bill,

 

You are correct the red track is from Need for Speed.

 

I have raced on that black track a number of times since it was built. The track has always been in the current location, the original owner had intentions of having a USRA Goup 7 National class track. While the power may not have been up to that standard the track was smooth and very fast when I ran there.

 

I am very sad to see the raceway leave, as there was a track in that area from 1993 until now.

Does anyone care to:

 

*Take apart those two tracks?

 

*Load them into a truck or shipping container?

 

*And optionally... bring them to California?

 

Or we can set a time for the trailer or shipping container to be left at location for loading. Several trucking firms will gladly bring the trailer to us.

 

Please submit any bid you with to make at your convenience. We would prefer you have track moving experience.

The larger of the two tracks would be so well suited for Group 27 races.  Or maybe Group 12/20 NASCAR?

Maybe if this was not the case circumstances would have been different. Just sayin'.

Raced for a few years on the black track and it is a fun one. It will however need the braid lowered as it is above the surface in many spots unless something was done to it recently.

The owner of the track passed away earlier this year and I don't think any of his kids wanted to take over the business so everything was being run by another family member I believe.

Eric,

 

Yes, Peter Adano, who owned Danbury Raceway and the associated distributorship passed away recently and the family has no one interested in continuing the businesses.

 

Evidently Sandra Duff, who has registered here as Danbury Raceway, is the contact person. She indicated to me that she'd be watching this thread and I apologize to her for assuming the seller was male in my comments in post #1.

That Engleman makes me want to move to a bigger place and bring it down south.

These tracks are still looking to go to a good home. We hate to sell them but have no choice and would love to see them be able to still be used. They need to be out of the space by the end of February.

 

Please email  danburyraceway@gmail.com with any questions.

 

Thanks!

Owner (who has been nice and pleasant to deal with at every point) reports that a 75a power supply comes with the 220 ft Engleman. I think I read a string of comments about how fast the track was and how it was destined for Group 7 races. With a 75a power supply for 220 ft of track? I'm going to need some education to make sense of that.

75 amps is probably way too light for eight G7s.

 

Post #7 alludes to whatever power was on the track, wasn't adequate for G7.

 

You add another or a different one. NBD.

Been many years since I raced on an Engleman. But when opens were on the track...

 

Oh how nice that sounded. Able to appreciate the sheer speed more with the long chutes.

I'm thinking... some of the first buyers might have taken advantage of an opportunity to swap a 75a out with whatever was on the Engleman. I can't imagine the largest track would have a 75a power supply.

If I could only find affordable space I could have an Engleman and a King under the same roof with an oval one other smaller tracks.

It's always the doggone rent.

Michael,

 

In addition to the power for the track, I would also have someone experienced with wiring Group 7 tracks review the wiring on that track. I'm not sure what cars were raced on that track.

Thank you. To be clear.....it's still a reach for me to get this down to SC. Transportation is a huge issue. My fallback is a very nice King I'm working on. And in the end it all depends on revenue of course.
But a guy can keep dreaming and reaching.
