I signed the petition to get the county to approve this track and it has progressed at a rapid rate. SOVREN, our NW Vintage race club is talking about having an event here next year. I'm fulling behind their effort, sports have been road racing in this area since the early '50's.

Perfect! We look forward to your competing there...with video of that time. Hope the access road will handle the huge number of feet that the track should attract...especially the rowdy "Puget Sound" types, as well as the surrounding college crowd.

Within the past week a YouTube Personal Message was forwarded to the managing entity of the RMP...by me:

To: "RidgeMotorsportsPark"
"VRR" (Vintage Racer Rules), that respected Forum given to providing info. 'bout vintage car racing, has added a thread specifically devoted to THE RIDGE. We all hope your venue is a grand success! Kindly post any of your Press Releases, etc. there. Although the forum is nationwide (actually World Wide), we do 'ave a healthy grouping of competitors in your neck-of-the-woods.:

http://www.vintageracerules.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=2426#Post2426
*********************************************************

TODAY, I (We) received this reply:



Re: RidgeMotorsportsPark
Thanks so much for the encouragement, we visited your website {VRR's Website} and looked at the thread regarding The Ridge. Hopefully we will be doing a photo shoot with some vintage iron here when the snow leaves, we will then post on your thread.

Thanks again!

Not sure how this got by me, but GASS did a fine vid of the benefit event on Dec. 11, take a looksee. Groundpounders, with passenger seats!!
These guys made a lot of people smile, they gave rides all afternoon long. Class act, we hope we see a lot of them at The Ridge.
Maybe next time it will be dry and they can get a head of steam up. The slicks and high HP, not so good in the rain.

I followed the progress of "The Ridge" because it closely mirrored Atlanta Motorsports Park. Both tracks were started about the time the property bubble burst and the economy contracted. Only due to the tenacity of the founders did either project survive and actually become a real track. I believed strongly enough in the AMP project to join as a founding member when there was just a plot of land, some big ideas, and a handful of lawsuits.

Every time I go there it makes me smile that I helped make it happen. I would love to see a vintage event at AMP but the sound restrictions are an issue.

Here is a video from the Lotus at AMP.

Great track, in the middle of no were though. It will be better as they make more infrastructure on site.

Ive never driven around AMP but stopped by and checked it out. Really nice and very close to Home. Wish they could run an event there. Hotels close by might be an issue and it looks like they would really be tight on Paddock space but thats a small price to pay for a great track. I think they run a Chump car or similar (mufflers). I need to try the Go Karts out just so i can say ive driven it. Mike
