Let's keep our fingers crossed, built to FIM/FIA regulations. The possibility of hosting an AMA race.

I believe the land is already purchased and cleared, and final drafting plans are done. "Ground breaking in Spring 2006"

I believe 75% of the funding is already secured... just looking for that remaining "bit". It would be a shame to be so close and not let it happen. I think we'll be riding it in 2007!! Excellent work Marcus.

About Liberty Motorsports Park

I want to thank everyone for the interest in this Motorsports Park. This is something Tom Haley and I have been working on for quite awhile. There are a couple of items that I would like to address.

1) We will primarily be communicating all developments through press releases and via our website. Our program is very detailed and the processes are exhaustive, but necessary to accomplish our goals. We appreciate all of the supportive words as well as skeptical observations. We feel it is our duty to build this facility in a manner that is inclusive to the community and our responsibility to perform at a level that definitively demonstrates the ability to complete this project. I will leave comments concerning CMRA development statements to the CMRA BOD member(s), but I will state that our development plan includes advice and input from the CMRA. We have concluded our first track design overview and came away with several critical changes. Doug Polen is a key consultant in this venture and we have been working with Ron Barrick of the AMA for several months to ensure we meet the safety and operational needs of the AMA. We also have several other consultants we are working with in the “4-wheel” world.
2) I will still be operating RPS in the same manner as before. There are three CMRA dates that I will personally miss because of AMA/Shea Fouchek commitments, but I have made arrangements to have competent personnel trackside to meet service obligations.
3) As a matter of policy, we will not be communicating developments or responding to rumors on this board or any other. As a longtime participant in our sport, it is tough for me to not want to talk about all the things going on with our development, but I am concerned that a consistent message will not be provided unless I (and Tom Haley) adhere to this policy.

We have a lot of hard work ahead of us. Without a doubt, we will experience success and setbacks as the project continues on. We are prepared to carry this project to completion and we have a County and City that are 110% behind us. Again, thank you to all that have expressed their opinions, we hope to work in a manner that demonstrates the character and integrity of our development group.

Marcus McBain

Great new Marcus... can't wait, it's going to be in my backyard.

BTW... I can pitch in $29 if it helps.

Pretty sweet getting to work with a legend like Polen!
