Yup, its a good outcome from a bad decision. I've been up there several times in the past few years and the locals have nothing to complain about when it comes to noise. There is far more noise from all the logging trucks on the road out front going 90kmh than this. Its about feelings...very similar to the nimby's whining about the new marina in Songhees. 

 

And then theres the issue about the current zoning, its heavy industrial, they could log the whole area and put in a variety of really loud obnoxious industrial uses. The old saying, be careful what you wish for... 

 

Lets just hope Council comes to its senses and leaves emotions and hurty feelings out of this

When a group of seven doctors bought a parcel of land in a remote river valley in Alberta more than 15 years ago to build a racetrack, farmers in the area could only chuckle in disbelief.

 

They found it impossible to imagine race cars skidding around multiple tracks on a plot of land in their secluded part of the Prairies, which rarely attracts visitors on the gravel roads that wind through the deep valley.

 

What may have seemed like a farfetched idea at the time is now much closer to reality, as those doctors hope to break ground on the $500-million racing resort this summer.

A few weeks ago. 10 of us literally had the place to ourselves for a great morning of lapping.
