Just thought I'd mention this to you Mid Atlantic types, as it'll be in your backyard if this comes to fruition. According to NASA-VA Region's homepage www.nasaracing.net
a place called Dragon's Ridge will be built about 15mi west of Williamsburg, VA. The backers of the facility do have a website up http://www.dragonsridge.com/index.html
. Sounds to me like their plans are still way up in the air - NASA's homepage says it will be a 4mi track, but the facility's page says it will be a 2mi track.
From the looks of their homepage they're trying to do the same thing that VIR did - form a country club kinda thing with a race track rather than a golf course. As much as I love to see more tracks on the East Coast, I have to wonder if there's really a big enough market to support two racing "country clubs" separated by only a couple hours.
