Not going to happen, unfortunately. The trend over the years has been to close tracks due to resident complaints and the demand for real estate. This comes up a few times a year and never goes anywhere.
Many years ago there was a well-organized grassroots campaign to save Bridgehampton which was an established, historic road course. It failed and part of the former track is now a golf course.

spent 4 years on the island thinking why there were no tracks. seems to be that everyone just wants to race on the street.

It always sounds so good.........but probably won't happen. Btw, there probably is still a back entrance to Bridgehampton. LISC was there a few years back and took some nice pics under the Bridge.

A motorsports facility would be a welcomed addition to LI for many. I lived in Suffolk for years and the closest thing I would see to motorsports is people racing every night on the L.I.E. Service Road. The area desperately needs a place for automotive enthusiasts to stretch their legs and enjoy their cars safely. I say if this gets approved it will lead to a reduction of automotive related fatalities in the area.

The brigehampton dragway was torn down and houses are there now and I completely agree I've been to a bunch of spots to watch races and a few times cops showed up and it would be so much better if we didn't have to worrie about that

Update: I was talking to my friend about the motor complex and he said the only thing holding us back is the memorial sight (his dad is one of the top ppl behind this) all we need to do is prove that we can make the track sound proof to ppl out side of the track
