Can't wait. Wishing Marcus all the luck- he'll need it!

This could be the beginning of greatness in this area; AMA would be breaking down the doors I think, as long as they are able to build it the way it's supposed to be built! Heck, the way the initial designs looked, I would be recruiting Dorna to bring MotoGP there!

Cars and motorcycles.

The difference is that Marcus is a motorcycle racer and has a motorcycling background- that's what's going to keep it motorcycle friendly, while being compliant for cars too.

mainly oriented towards bikes but I'm sure cars will run as well, since the article mentioned grand am events.

Marcus has been issuing press releases for a while, I hope some bulldozers start clearing the land soon.

Sweet. If this becomes reality, it would be awesome. Wonder what kind of racing this would attract to come here.

It's ambitious. I've always thought that if you build a world class racetrack, everything else world class will follow. Doing it all at once, in Cleveland, is a big risk that takes some bras to pull off. Hopefully it floats.
