Thread: Gauging interest in a practice/shakedown spot in VA.

    Default Gauging interest in a practice/shakedown spot in VA.

    I'm trying to gauge people's interest in being able to practice for stage events without going to a school as well as practicing after a school. We have 100+ acres and we will be setting up a Rally X area as well as stage roads. The stage roads will be between 3-5 miles in a loop most likely. The surface right now will be dirt. We will over time make sections into gravel. This isn't a business, it's our back yard, well front yard really. It's located just outside northern Virginia in Fauquier county. As soon as I get my car fixed I'm going to start to burn in the roads. We also have a 40x40 shop with lift. The lift will be installed soon. We will have some camp sites set up and we are working on having fuel on site. Let me know if anyone is interested.

    Yes, there are certainly a lot of us that would be interested...

    Although far away from me, I would a trip up from NC for a weekend once the roads get burned in.

    I guessed people would be interested but being in Virginia I'm not sure where most people are located. Has anyone ever done something like this and may have some ideas about dealing with the county? What could they really do other than complain about noise. With 150+ acres I don't have close neighbors really.

    I have tested out near Luray once and there were no problems. Dave Pomfret's old place in Orange VA was used for years for rally without issue as well.

    Your insurance company might care....

    There is actually a large number of rallyists here in VA (and MD and other surrounding states)

    NRS has a special insurance rate for exactly this type of scenario:

    Your question is probably answered in Rally University.

    And just to add to the discussion...I have been told Denise McMahon can offer test day insurance for a great price without the 10 car limitation and I heard that RA can do the same (not confirmed) but a call to Mr.Niday might answer that.

    I didn't think Mr. Niday had anything to do with RA anymore... or is he back?

    Kind of an advisory role, he does some little stuff to help out. He isn't involved like he was in the past.
