The buzz was probably partially true.
There is a patch of land near Gainseville (between Gainesville and Ocala) that they rent out for auto and rallyx and rallies including tarmac rallies.
The problem is, it is pretty expensive. If we could get enough people together it would probably run us 20 bucks a person or so, but that would have to be around 100 cars.
There is also a South Carolina rally probably happening on Dec01 and 02. I think sandman's website has some details? Sand Hills? I will check with RenMaxi.
