How much would it cost to build a track

Just wondering If I won the lottery, how much would it cost to build a bad azz track. You just never know but I think thats a good information to have for hypothetical sake.

seriously?? That seems like a lot. I don't know much about constructing roads or tracks but I've done concrete before and it wasn't that much.

I'll do as much work as I can in exchange for track time if anyone goes through with this.

after some extensive research i was able to locate a company that specializes in this. they ship a modular track to you, it comes with guard rails and everything. you are responsible for unpacking and assembling. i was amazed at how cheap it is. you probably cant afford it now, but like you said, if you win the lottery you never know right!?

oh...and the coolest thing. it COMES WITH a couple of race ready ducati's...so you can totally start enjoying the new track right away. that is PIMP!

If you build it in the middle of no where the land would run you about $300K. Then you'd need to build a house to stay in. There's another $100K.

screw the house. If im gonna do it Im gonna do it in style and put a bunch of double wides on the property and rent out to a bunch of gossipers because you never hear the end of what they saw at the track. \

I would also build me and 8 wide. 32 brisket smoker is manditory for anyone that wants a bbq pit.


I would also have a small jump ramp on the track.

just did a lil search which is probably not that accurate, but still a rough estimate

in 1957 mazda raceway laguna seca was built for 1.5 million.
using some internet inflation calculator, 1.5 million in 1957 is the equivalent of $11.3 million in 2009.

1909 indianapolis motor speedway was 3 million
in 2009 would be 70.7 million

sooo...in conclusion....
if u were to hit todays mega millions, you will have more than enough

edit:
maybe not more than enough

infineon raceway
$70 million in 1968
What cost $70,000,000 in 1968 would cost $426,912,389.65 in 2009.

I would build something like Eagles Canyon. That is a bad track. Too bad it doesn't drain very well.

i dont know if it would be possible for a track, but heres something that may be cool to consider

I went to school in Massachusetts, where it snows quite frequently during the winter. My school was on a hill and the student parking was at the bottom of the hill. Had to walk up a huge flight of stairs to get to the buildings (those bastards!). They put some sort of heating element under the stairs so that they would never freeze over. maybe something similar under a track would help it dry quickly after a rain/drizzle, unless everyone wanted to run wet somedays.

If Ellington field were to ever close that would be the best place for all kinds of riding. You could use the airstrip for drag and build a track all the way around.
