Over the last couple years this track has quietly been built right outside of Adrian, MO (about 50 miles from Kansas City) but nobody seems to know anything about it. Everything I've heard is that it's going to be private but I also have information that they are putting in 20 condos with garages. I've driven by multiple times trying to sneak a peak (I live 10 mins awayfrown) and it looks like it a very nice track. Guard rails, banked turns, elevation changes, 2600ft straight away. I NEED to know more!!

can you ask the city about the building permit ?

Somehow it had to have a public hearing.....

I think all you need to know is that you won't be able to afford it.

Look up and see if the permits are available on line. You may also be able to down load the plans and specs if they were filed. That will tell you allot.

I really hope you're wrong :(

 

The guy that owns it also owns all the land around it.  I have the name of the owner.  Well outside any city limits, I really doubt much permitting was involved.

If there is no city then the next level of government would be the county. They would very likely have building codes and where there are codes there are people who enforce them and permit projects.

News to me.  Thanks for the heads-up!

That's not necessarily true. I lived in a county that didn't have zoning laws outside the main city. Neighbors could complain but you couldn't force anyone to do anything because you could say that someone else is doing something else worse than yourself. I've seen a gas depot right next to a running creek without barriers, seen mountains leveled backfilling creeks for a new shopping center...

I haven't been able to find anything out about the track near Adrian but I do know there is also a track going in near Gravois Mills (Lake of the Ozarks).  Opening summer 2021.  With all the hills around the lake it should make for a fun track.

Even "country club" tracks usually allocate some weekends throughout the year to rent to various track day organizers. So getting on the track a few times a year without paying the "premium access" fee will almost certainly be possible.

I'm guessing you won't be able to afford it the first year or two, then when hype dies down, there will be track time available at a reasonable price

That's not really valid.  Someone else doing something worse doesn't give you license to do something.  That's toddler logic, "but Billy next door can do it why can't I?"
