Thumbs up A new road course in Virginia in 2003?

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.
