Default Think Hawaii is bad without a track? read this

well its one thing not to have a track. Hows about drifters getting banned from a track. I am very disgusted by the action of the board in north cali.

excellent article... i like this part:

Quote:
Everything lay in the balance today. The drifters involved plan to win this battle, and take it all the way to the Governator if the Rivards and their Lawyer manage to pull baby foxes through loopholes. The irony of all this is that the time-proven way to get racing off the streets is to give people a place to do it - such as a race track. The commercial at the beginning of the KTVU news video states: "There are endless choices of where you can drive in California." Not for long with people like Mark and Karin Rivard. Always support your local race track. If you don't like racing, then building a house next door to a race track is probably not a great plan. – Mike Bumbeck
who really is "public enemy #1" here?

On further reading...there's more to this story than what's apparent. I don't think it's a good idea to get involved in this one...it's more than banning drifting that is the problem over there.

doh!... funny thing is the Rivards built their own track next door

The ultimate irony is that Mark Rivard himself evidently cared nothing about the baby foxes when he constructed a personal motocross race track on his adjacent to Altamont Speedway property.

I love when people move next to a racetrack, and then complain about it later. The realtor is required to tell you it's there when you buy your house, and it's not like you wouldn't notice a racetrack anyway. Move somewhere else and let racing be!

Thats like the buttheads that move in next to a wastewater facility and complain about the smell...
