hey sil, i remember hearing about this in 2003, but i was never sure it had finally got all the permits and regulations to finally open.

i guess plans are still a go, since they have a public meeting on april 7th this week

this will be sweet as the only viable track for most people here in la county is 2 hours north at willow springs etc..

There's a ton of reasons:

-Cheap land (cost of property, taxes, maintenance)
-No people to annoy with the sound (people don't want a racetrack near their house and vote against it much less allow one to be built then complain)
-Usually less legal paperwork to deal with (you have less political bullshit to get a track approved)

Those are what I believe are the more important ones.

yah man people hate the track. My friend lives in Sac near the drag strip. Its fucking ridiculous all these people moved in there and got a good deal because of the proximity to the track. He says every town meeting they complain to no end about the noise :rolleyes:

For him, he loves it. He watches the races from his master bedroom window.

Why would Gilroy want a track there? Turst me, there's people resisting it in many places. Gilroy will be booming in a few years. Morgan Hill is already blowing up.

Gilroy had boomed ages ago... on the verge/in process of booming are little towns WAAAAY out in the boonies like Los Banos, Patterson, etc, and they won't even want racetracks...
