Race Track in San Diego

We just got this little inquiry from reader, Dajet, about his proposal to build another Southern California track. Maybe MO's readers have some input?

He writes:

Has anyone wondered why we do not have a road racing or drag strip track in San Diego County? I have, and decided to do something about it. I have just put 345 acres (need aprox 200 more) into escrow, contingent upon public funding, for a private race track...

. Location, 1 hour east of downtown San Diego on the south side of interstate 8, in good old Imperial County, land of low regulations, and a heavy dirt bike area!

No, I am not a big time developer, just a guy who's tired of Willow Springs, and really wants a track down here. With the number of sport bikes, car clubs, and recent craze in dragging Honda Civics, I see a real market for a track here. I am not even going to do a market study, I am simply drawing up a game plan, putting the land in escrow, and will then go out for public funding.

What are your thoughts out there, especially my fellow San Diegans?
