Possible Solo Site
« on: October 18, 2012, 10:45:03 am »
Has WNY or FLR ever considered running at the Genesee Valley Kart Club? Someone on NYSpeed just posted a picture of their Mini being run there and apparently the Mini dealer in Avon rents the place out once a year. It's about an hour and 20 minutes from WNY so maybe more of an FLR site. Below is a side by side comparing it to Batavia at 20 meter satellite resolution.

That is definitely in FLR's region.  Our region is Niagara, Erie, Chautauqua, and Cattaraugus Counties.

So was Seneca Army Depot but that didn't stop WNY from running events there.

FLR (Tina) still handled all scheduling of events there.

BMW club ran there this year Memorial Day weekend too.

I'd gotten the email about the Towne Mini event that was there the other day but forgot about it... probably since I don't own a Mini...

I know FLR (or at least someone) used to run there years ago.  Don't know if they're pursuing it now or not.

I know we have discussed it, but if I remember right, it couldn't pass SCCA safety requirements. I think it was distance from hard immovable objects.
