I just got this email from a friend.They have been working on getting anew drift/auto-x site. I think they may have.Lets hope that it happens it would be really nice to have a track close to home. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Well i finally got the word from the Altamont Manager Jeff Macey, on whats going on... he writes... "Got the word from CO. we are a GOOOOOOO !!! Need you to call and get the word out. Id like to have a meeting with all the kids." so it speaks for itself..... Now we just need to get one set up... I know that there were some good organizing type guys at the last meet and i would like them to come back for this meeting to help set something up! Again if you do not know what i am talking about since the Altamont raceway had drifting banned from its track the manager and a small group of drifters (including myself) have been pushing hard for the County to let us use there airports to put on events... Drift Drag and auto-x...

So It is now a GOOOO... and are going to need to get some nice Organizing going on... For example the meet coming up... shoot me some ideas when you can come!!! we are trying to set it up for 21st and 22nd of this month. It will either be at the altamont race track or the New Jaruselem air strip to get a look at what we are working with...


if you are coming to the meeting or would like to atend let Jeff macey know directly! He is the President and general manager.

Give him your name and contact info!

So, is Altamont even (remotely) clue-ed in as to a business model to rent the place out for autocross yet? As in, renting it for a price that is realistic?

As of last year, the answer was no Sad

(Cliff notes : under their "model" you were looking at an entry fee of $60+ for the club putting on the event to break even Wink )

i dont think this is going to be at the altamont race track. Im not sure on the price if they were going to do auto-x. I just heard taht they were looking at a place in tracy fro drifting and auto-x. so i guess we are going to have to wait and see i guess
