Anybody heard about the possibility of Summit being sold
« on: May 10, 2010, 10:03:24 pm »
This is not a rumor. Where I'm from the federal government is looking into building a facility where they'll train Department of State people to protect diplomats, VIP, and other assorted important people from the terrorists. The facility will house firing ranges, explosives training, high speed road courses, among other things.  Apparently before they decided that two farms up here that total a little over 2000 acres was the preferred site, they were looking seriously at Summit Point. They had also been using Summit for different types of training. Although it supposedly would be a lower cost alternative to the site up here, for some reason this area is the now the preferred site.

Locally there is some very vocal, very serious opposition to this project (It's called FASTC which stands for Foreign Affairs Security Training Center). There bis a big debate locally about whether the majority oppose or favor the project. About whether it'll be good or bad for the area, etc.,etc. My point is that even though this area (the Eastern Shore of Maryland) is the preferred site, politics are at play and there are lots of places that would love this ($100,000,000+ in initial construction plus approx 1000 jobs). Even though the Feds can do what they want as far as this project goes (i.e. they don't need the locals approval) people in West Virginia would probably welcome this.

Just thought you might want to be informed.

I don't know if it will ever happen. I'm just stating that it's a real possibility. Perhaps someone at Summit knows but I don't know if they'll talk about it. If it happens then the impact on CCS and all other race orgs is simple. No more racing at Summit Point.

Don't think it will happen.  Jenscott has been on our local boards talking about the repaving, and the new bubbles that have appeared on the track etc....

I need to figure that deal out too!  You guys get way too much track time to try to keep up with you!
