Despite Charles' comments, my gut feeling says that if a good circuit track/drag strip opened up somewhere near to suburbia there would be a decrease in street racing provided it is cheap and accessible.

Which will probably never happen.

well this is slightly off topic but.....

I don't agree or support street racing.....however....I have this problem.....where i crave speed...lol

I struggle to follow the speed limit, and well I'm not too interested in street racing other people.....i just like doing my own thing and getting from point A to B fast.....so going to a track is pointless for me

WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE LIKE ME? THINK ABOUT THE LITTLE PEOPLE!

riiiight... becasue people who live on farms don't deserve peace and quiet.. in the country you can hear a car ripping it up much much further than in the city, since its open land and no man made features to filter out the noise... have you ever considered that point?

you can use that same point to justify not building airports. Your main concern is noise pollution? theres like 10 houses that would be affected by the noise.

They're gonna be bought out by land developers anyways

if ......

there was gonna ever be a track built in the GTA
it would be to attract NASCAR/F1 and for CART


pro racing revenue > what we would pay for friday night test and tunes

and knowing Toronto...it would be owned by MLSE and there would be 8 condo developements coming up with it too lol

We don't need any more tracks. More events or different types of events like Time Attack can be a good suggestion. Street racing sells papers and gets people to watch the news whenever its needed. Anyone who has a car thats worth racing already goes to the tracks that are available. Hobbies aren't cheap. This one comes with a few extra headaches too. Live with it. Everyone else does.

Just wanted to know where and which dragstrips/tracks that are available around here?

The only one I know is TORONTO MOTORSPORTS PARK and thats a dragstrip only (they are having Test-N-Tune for the rest of the season for only $30 btw).

There is one in Shannonville where BattleEndless was setting up lapping days.

Any else?

Closer is not a bad idea. But the straight would take a big toll on the pads. I am in need of new pads and rotors, otherwise, I will have to play conservertively this year :P

Dunville's a lot of fun. Kinda small in its current configuration (think Nelson at Shannonville)....but still technical enough that you can have fun.

Small is alright, for my skill, anything will work. I really need to learn and gain seat time.
