Yep, this has been talked about for a while, but this just came out in the news. Something to dream about during our winter months ahead.......

Holy shit! They actually broke ground?!?!?! They were supposed to do that this past spring.

They have been talking about this facility or one like it for the better part of 20 years and I've gone thru various emotional stages because of it. I really hope it finally comes to fruition and is affordable in the end but will remain a skeptic until opening day.

Now that it has the full backing of the county, plus various other agencies and organizations (including UTI), this has the ability to progress fairly rapidly and stay on track. The beauty of this facility is that there is not the chance for the owner split like The Ridge had that stalled things for so long.

This could be great news, but the article is sketchy on details. Where did the funding come from? If the funding is locked in place that's great, otherwise it's just four guys with shovels for a PR photo.

Having expressed skepticism, I'd still put down a deposit now for the first track day in 2021.

#StrangeCoincidence: I clicked on the link to read the News Tribune's article, and the banner ad across the top was for The Ridge, which in this instance was the name of a hipster wallet.

Part of their design financing hinges on money from the Kitsap Public Facilities District.
