    I think this whole "race tracks reduce street racing" is bullshit propaganda from the folks that want someone else to pay for their hobbies. We get it, you like race tracks, but let's not pretend there's some kind of social benefit.

    No one is asking for someone else to pay for their hobby. They just want a track to not be here hindered by farmer nimby.

    I was referring to the people who said City of Calgary should subsidize Race City. I haven't heard of requests for public money for the Rockyview project.

    I don’t think any of us are asking for public handouts to pay for a track, and I agree it really doesn’t do much to curb street racing. But I really think we shouldn’t have to travel 275km to the nearest road course/dirt track etc etc (some specific race type venues are closer). I’m putting thousands of dollars into other towns economies each year but I could be spending it more locally and helping people around here too.

    The people that actually knew what was up with RC know it wasn’t a subsidy that was needed... it was a fair lease agreement. Extending it year by year made it impossible to invest any money into... but hey! When the former mayor owned all the surrounding land what can you expect?

    Drove by again this afternoon on my way home and the only thing out of place in the field are short wood stakes with orange ribbons on them. Otherwise no visible signs of work being done there. Farmer was actually still harvesting some of last year's crop.
    Where is it? Coordinates? We've got a plane so I'll fly over next time I'm up and take some pics.

    About 500m east of the QE2 at the 581 (Carstairs) exit.

    Was up at Carstairs and drove past all 4 sides of the track property - still just wood stakes in the ground.

    They posted a quick update today, as well as some people likely got a more detailed update this weekend (won’t post here). Construction quoted as starting soon.

    I disagree. I think this will happen, but I think they aren't through with all the delays and issues, yet.

    Was still just a field full of whatever grain was sown there on Sunday, June 28 when I was up there.
