Official Dominion Raceway Thread

Post by Yoshi » Fri Dec 14, 2012 8:45 am

Here's what I know:

The track will be around exit 128 off of 95. To give you an idea, 495 is exit 170 on 95. So that's a good 40 minutes once you get on 95 from the beltway. Not too bad IMO.

1/8 mile drag, paved infield oval (so they promise me), and a road course.

The hope is to build next year and be open for 2014

The local community is pushing back and preventing the track from being built.

I asked them to put in access roads between sections of the road course so we can do it like summit.

Track layout as of 12/14/12

I don't see too many ways the road course can be split up right now. It would be really cool to extend into parcel C and have some more curves and bus stops.

Yosh hopefully this is just a rough draft and they will pave the infield instead of gravel and add some cut throughs adn bus stops.

I think it's pretty set in stone at this point. I dunno. I'm trying to get in contact with him to ask questions. I don't think he wants to lengthen the road course by that much more though.

The road course looks great for regular racing. not so much driftzors.

scroll right a bit. it's actually around nothing of major concern. There's even a junk yard and a hotel across the street. Sounds like awesome for the local economy imo.
