Notice how they didn't have a half-zillion pylons to define the course? And, the driver didn't appear to get lost either.

As a semi-n00b, that course would scare the living hell out of me. I'd have to do about 30 course walks to remember that thing laugh.gif

Not to thread jack, but have we ever tried the state fair grounds? I was there today to help set-up and they have 2 HUGE parking lots, both bigger than skid pad 4. The one on the west side of 19th ave is always completely empty.

I know we tried the fairgrounds years ago, and they charge by the parking space, which made it pretty expensive. No idea if Jim has checked with them lately, but might be worth a shot.

It's a non-starter due to some sort of developer agreement relating to the sale. I forget the details, but basically nobody will ever use any of the facilities out there until they are demolished, due to legal/contractual stuff.

Yeah, the lightpoles are a disaster at the fairgrounds. I live less than 1/2 mile from there and thought of it a while back. Then I remembered.

The super-cool place I've seen is that far north parking lot at University of Phoenix Stadium (pretty much right next to Glendale and the 101). It's huge and has no light poles. Must be overflow parking.

That said, I'm not complaining.

As I think I recall, even years ago that surface was deteriorating (think Phoenix Muni), likely much worse now. Would require a "drive by" to see. At that time they
wanted us to pay "spot by spot" like we were a swap meet. blink.gif

Phoenix Greyhound Park is closing, info sent to Jim to check out. smile.gif

I've run that Mineral Wells site quite a few times. It is AWESOME. It's an old WWII helicopter base that is just an enormous square of brushed concrete. Wish we had something like that!

this spot is huge! i have been thinking to myself every time i pass it. "why dont they try for this place" there is also one south of the stadium it not as big but its really flat and clean asphalt. not poles at all! also if you into rally cross the over flow lot just on the west side of the 101 is hugh and pretty smooth and all clean dirt. no rocks of any other crap.

For the nth time, we have contacted the stadium. We can have the lot if we rent the whole stadium. Would you be willing to pay over $100 for an autocross event??? I didn't think so.

Maybe a couple of times a year. Registration fee is about the cheapest thing of the day. Nationals was $90 for the two days. Do we get at least 6 runs? ph34r.gif

ok what about the lot south of the stadium, i dont think its owned by the stadium. i think the guy who owns the farm field owns that one. i think he just made it to make some big money for superbowl. that south lot wasnt there untill like 1 month before the superbowl and then i have never seen it used since. ps. i live right up the road so i see it like every day.

Sorry, that didn't come out quite how I meant it. We have discussed access to the stadium lot several times in the past. I think Jim was told that we could have the lot if we rented the whole stadium. Cost prohibitive (Notice I said OVER $100 and that would be for just one day).

If you think the south lot might be available, try to find a point of contact so we can inquire.
