Question Considering move to Kentucky...

Hi:

My wife has received a great job offer in Lexington and we are considering moving there. How active is the local SCCA chapter? Do they hold many autocrosses throughout the year? What's the closest track for track days?

Thanks...

Lexington is a decent town. Probably really slow compared to what you are used to though. I went to college there, and it was alright. Beautiful country

Umm, nearest track that allows people on it, would be either mid-ohio (literally in mid-ohio, so about 4-5 hours) or there is one in indiana somewhere, again, at least 4-5 hours away, and well, you get the pic. They do have a autox group, and there is one in cincy, so you can double dip. Cincy is about an hour from lex.

About the only thing good in KY is the moon shine, horse racing, basket ball, and tabacco.
I moved to Indy about 10 years ago, after living in Los Angeles for 15. TALK ABOUT A CHANGE OF PACE.
Holly wow!
Nice change of place KY is....lots of horse farms and green areas.

I lived in Lexington for 12 years before moving to DC 2 years ago. it's not a bad little town, but the airport sucks and I think the traffic is bad for a city it's size. and no good speed shops for imports.

most of the SCCA group are Miata owners but they're all very cool. also, as mentioned, Cincy (and Louisville, KY) are an hour away. the only race track I know of is Putnam Park, just outside of Indianapolis. lots of drag tracks and dirt tracks, but no road tracks.

the good side is there are all kinds of back roads for Sunday morning drives. I miss the back roads almost every day. and you can actually afford to buy a house in KY, unlike DC...

best of luck to you, what ever you decide.

Thanks for the replies. The change of pace and affordable housing might be nice... But 3.5 hours to the nearest track is rough.

it's all about SCCA and back roads in good old LexVegas. I'll probably end up back there one day, but not just yet...
