      Sea Otter bicycle festival is in April. I go there and race every year. Week long event. I wonder how/if that will be affected.

        Not sure about the bicycles. I remember reading somewhere that the World Superbike event was the most lucrative for the track. I went one year back in 2003 or 2004 when I used to ride, and it was happening, but I don't know how it could have outdone the Rolex.

          I think all track should look into bicycles as an added revenue source. I can't think of a safer place to get out and ride and racing on a track would be even better. I have bicycled BRP and the streets and really like it. I wish I could do it more. I wish SCCA would allow us to take bikes on the track after 5pm or before 8am on race weekends. And honestly you can really learn things about a track walking or slowly biking it.

            To me the impediment seems to be track management and not the race sanctioning body.


            To the right of The Sheriff. Isn't everyone?

              I think you're spot on. Because the track is owned by the county and managed by another entity, I've heard that there's an element of everyone's in charge, yet no one is in charge. Decisions take a while to be made and there's a roster of people who need to weigh in before those decisions can be made.

                  Wow, that story took a lot of gum-shoe reporting. Really well done.

                  "If Pook’'s account is correct, the supervisors may have violated the state'’s Brown Act, the open-meeting law that, among other things, bars elected officials from making informal decisions before casting official votes. McKee, who was the county’s chief lawyer before becoming administrative officer, didn’t respond to an email and a call seeking comment on that issue Wednesday."

                  No response is telling.

                  The Brown Act is pretty clear about public input on public meetings, and it looks as though the supervisors violated the act. If it comes before a judge, and I wouldn't bet against that happening, this whole saga is going back to square one.

                    Yah. According the article, there are three separate instances/bits of evidence that support the accusation of Brown act violation. It'll be pretty hard to get out of that indictment.

                      All this drama might make for a good movie, except that it's too silly and dismal to make for a good movie.

                        Depends on the still to be written ending.
                        Maybe Tesla buys it and the neighbors complain about the driverless cars around town. Maybe the site gets developed and the neighbors complain about the crowds. Maybe the site is abandoned and the neighbors complain about the lack of activity at local businesses. There is only one certainty in this story and that is the the neighbors will complain.
