Yes but

Reserve not met

APPRAISED VALUE
$4,267,000 (2002 Appraisal)

I doubt the reserve is anywhere close to what we could afford...

Nice idea thought! I always dream about my own racetrack... who doesn't after all :wink: ?

I don't so much wish I had my own race track, just that everybody else on the road would disappear!

Hrm... if every member on this site donated about $530ish we could exceed the reserve price (assuming that the above stated price is the reserve).

We need more members. :P And we need to wake up all the inactinve ones.

There's an apartment complex here that is up for sale. It only has one building (in front) built. And the rest of the property is just a big (~1/2 mi) ovalish road. Up for only $2M USD. I've had many daydreams about turning that into a racetrack. 16-car garage and all...
I had pics and a vid, but I can't find my CF card right now.
