Saw this article in the paper today and was wondering if anyone has heard of this or what they think of it? It is close to home for me so it would be great for me if it were to happen. http://www.norwichbulletin.com/x269562013/Thompson-Speedway-considering-road-course-s-return#axzz21gD0WGda

Wow, like an old ghost track :) Appears to need a significant "freshening" up. In addition to that the paddock looks really small. I think they had the first SCCA Solo National there years and years ago. Cool find.

Took my first performance driving school there with Tony Scotti in 1978. Wow!

Are you sure you didn't mix up the "9" and the "7", it looked like a typo.................

My neighbor had raced there back in the 60's with a MG. I saw a picture of him racing there with tires half buried in the dirt for apex curbing!

This would be bloody awesome if they updated Thompson to have a good roadcourse again!

So Thompson is on the schedule with an August 2013 "TBA" date.

Any more news about the road course?

Yeah, I'd already found that. But there is not a word on their website about the new road course.
