Rob,

You just need to worry about going to VIR with us and quit worrying about High Rock!

there have been high rock delays due to some neighbors not wanting a track, but that is mostly over now. there are also some financing delays due to the imploding economy but that seems to be settled also. cross your fingers this track begins construction soon.

They have been working on selling the condos first. The owner of the track is not a "racing guy". He is a real estate developer and they had to sell a minimum number of the condos before breaking ground on the track... and if not the track would fall by the wayside. Last I heard, they met their goal and should begin construction soon. It will be nice to have such a wonderful facility/playground so close by!

I placed a bid to do some glass work and got it. Construction should be starting if it hasn't already.

I think the SCMC should invest in a few of those condos. They could be rented out during other times of the year and the club officers could use them at SCMC events.

membership is high $$, and the annual renewal is $35k (IIRC).

A bunch of the delays were also caused by an indian burial ground on the property. Wait, sorry, native American.

close, there was a woman who initiated an injuction against the track because it was supposedly located on a civil war battlefield. of course the area was never considered a civil war site until someone decided to build a racetrack there.

membership varies depending on the level, but renewal isn't that high. I don't recall the exact number, but it isn't near $35k. members also get 60 open trackdays per year plus access for pro events.
