as far as I know, it's just optimism. they plan on having a road race track...but nothing more than that.

I hear that McKenna might be involved in this....maybe if we let him know we have a few hundred interested drivers it'll inspire him to build it....I'd rather fly there to race than to the mainland

Make sure you check out the link to Kona Motorsports Park, they've got a really nice website up for it. I wish them the best...

I just received a flyer asking if we can indicate our support for the new facility in Kona....

http://hawaiimotorhead.com/survey/survey.html

I'd hope you take the time to fill out the survey form and show your support for the new facility, so please go to the link.
