if i am correct isn't this very close to milan?

Yepper.

I've heard for a few years now of somebody trying to put a dragstrip in at Willow Run.

I would think if something like this should actually happen it would put a real hurt on Milan Dragway.

Simply put, Michigan Motor Sports Entertainment Park will not be a
typical Motor Sports venue. The Automotive Country Club will be a
private, members only automotive themed club where members come
first, enjoying almost unlimited track time and first class amenities.
Membership will be strictly limited to maximize both safety and pleasure​
of driving your own vehicle on a racing circuit.

Looking at the photos of the proposed layout I'm assuming the dragstrip would be run like any other dragstrip and the road course would be a seperate deal for the "wine and cheese" crowd.

If you look at the membership fee's and annual dues some of that is kinda steep. Especailly for all the broke asses here in Michigan....LOL



I'm thinking this is a sit back and wait and see what materializes kinda thing.

Sounds like the same concept as NJMP which is right near me. They'll sell it hard to the community like it'll help, but the obvious goal is self-contained business. FYI, NJMP went bankrupt and was bought out. It's still nowhere near the third stage of the projected plan.

They're all modeled after VIR, which has been successful for many, many years. Unfortunately, right now is the wrong time to be trying to pull it off and there's a difference between having a club around one of the country's most challenging road courses that hosts a variety of significant national events and having a club around an average, relatively simple road course.
