Default Any interest for SCCA rallycross in GA?

I'm working on a potential site for rallycross in GA. I'm trying to find a place as close to Atlanta as possible, but I'm only having luck so far with sites an hour or two south of Atlanta (Reynolds is the most promising site so far). From what I understand, I have the backing of the SCCA. I was told that as long as I can aquire a site, they will handle everything else.

I've already spent hours and hours driving to check out sites, trying to track down land owners, making phone calls, etc. Before I spend any more time, how many of you would even be interested in showing up?

Thanks,
Christopher

Cool... I think I'm going to be made one, but any help would be greatly appreciated. Some guys said they would come over from Alabama and help out, and I know of a few people in my area that would show up. The SCCA said that the only reason why they didn't have one in GA was because of lack of a site and definitely not lack of interest. I guess we'll just have to wait and see who shows when we get all of the details nailed down.

Awesome... are you on dirty impreza?

This is the most promising site I've found so far:

http://taylorcountyboondocks.com/index.html

It is at:
32.582303,-84.330797

I explained to the owner what we wanted to do, and his response, was simply, "yeah, we're interested... how many competitors would you expect to show up?" I drove down and checked it out and the land would be perfect! I'm just waiting to hear a definite yes or no.

Yeah, that's a good point. I'm interested but don't know anything about it nor do I have a car. It'll probably take a while for a solid group to build up.

Well, looks like we have a site. Progress is being made. It all just has to go through the SCCAs processes and be scheduled. The current available site is located here: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=32.86...05922&t=h&z=18

I'll update when we have more info and a schedule.

Yep, me and three others guys are working out the details. I think the plan is to check out the land next Saturday, and we're scheduling a lunch as soon as everyone can agree on a day to get together so we can work out scheduling and all of the other details. The old cones from the solo program have been offered up, the alabama rallycross guys are going to come give us a hand getting everything going, and it's all just down to scheduling for the most part.

Wes went and checked out the site yesterday. He says it's usable. There are a few issues, but I don't think it will be a problem. The land owner is letting us use the field free of charge. There are a few more neighbors to talk to so that we can make sure we won't be shut down 10 minutes after we get started. The owner is working on getting permission from the county.

The only issues we have are the only gate into the field is on the opposite end of where the best place to put the paddock area, so there would be no in and out while cars are running. There is a small mound that needs to be leveled out (I should be able to take care of that with no issues), and it will probably get really dusty because of the soil type.

I hope to have a date scheduled soon. I'm also going to continue looking for a more permanent and larger site in the meantime. I think if we get a decent amount of interest, we will outgrow this site pretty quick.

Wes has sent everything to Brian (Atlanta RE), and from what I understand we are just waiting to hear back from him. Other than that, I believe, it's just working out scheduling and such.
