Tansor Road at HWY 18 could be it.

Don't know the location yet but was told that the first construction will be a "test track" with other things added slowly over time. 1/4 mile drag strip hopefully one of them.

I just watched the video from the one in the OK, said that the membership fee would be $30,000.  Our car isn't worth $30,0000.  Then said that you could rent a car & drive it for 15 minutes around the track for $25.  Nothing in between?  Taking your own car?  Hopefully they will put some more thought into this venture.  Neither one appeals at the moment.

^ for $25 bucks I'd totally do the rent and drive for 15 minutes, providing the car is a high end car and there isn't any speed limits. They must have a way to vet qualified drivers though I guess.

How come when I bring up your link it is still forest compared to the track in your photo.  Do you have a way a getting a more recent google image?

The newer version of Google Maps doesn't have the latest aerial imagery. The older version of Google Maps does. Figure that one out!

From the German Auto Import Group:

Great Research everyone but unfortunately this is not the layout. =) At the start of this project, we never envisioned the track would become as big as it was. We simply wanted something more suitable for the island where we could allow our clients to drive their vehicles in a controlled environment. However, after doing some extensive research and visiting a few tracks in North America, we quickly realized we needed a drastic change and needed to offer something much better that what we had, of which you will see in the images posted. Since then, we have enlisted one of the world’s best track designers and their track design will be released in the next few months. As you will see in the aerial shot as well, that is still the old design and construction for the new design will take new form in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more information and thank you all for your enthusiasm.
