The following post was taken from MikeeeP’s Fresh Dirt Bulletin Board:
I set out Saturday morning on my 50-mile drive from Orange County to Lake Elsinore for the weekly ride at the track. Upon arriving I received a yellow piece of paper stating that there would be a city meeting in the coming weeks to deterrmine the status of the track and its occupants. Right away I couldn’t believe that the possibility of the Elsinore track not being there in the near future was real. Why would they shut down a track that resides in the boonies? Does too much dust blow out to the trailer parks surrounding the track? Or are the sky divers getting sand in their eyes when they come flying down?
What I am getting at is this seems to be a poor excuse to take away another riding spot from us. When my kid is old enough to ride (6 months old now) their will be absolutely no place to go. Up and down my street will be about it. I think that as a union of riders we need to do something. Maybe guys like DC from Racer X or Maeda from Transworld could use their media stature to help out…I know they post on here and I have seen Maeda riding Elsinore a many times…Not to mention most of you guys that post on here probably ride there too.
So show your support for a great So Cal track by doing one of the following:
1. Attend the meeting at 183 N Main Street, Lake Elsinore, CA on Wednesday, August 7th at 6:30pm 2. Log on to www.lake-elsinore.org and email you thoughts 3. Call 909.674.3124 ext 4 and tell them by phone
Any positive feedback to the city of Lake Elsinore will sure make this an easier battle.
