There was a kart track here. My friends tell me it’s now gone. Washed away.

Get that thing up on the stand, looks like we’re gonna need rain tires for this session.July 2, 2010 at 9:41 pm #64021Rick SchmidtParticipant
Looks more like you need the tires off of stand than wets. I love it Kirk. Some look that picture and see mud, sand and debri, you see a familiar racing surface and small tuning challeng!
Hope everyones holiday goes well. We have it pretty good with the weather here in Colorado.July 4, 2010 at 3:31 am #64022
I found this video of the flood in action. Starting around 16 second mark, there is a good shot of the track covered in water.July 4, 2010 at 2:04 pm #64023Angel RamirezParticipant
I think they are switching bussines, from karting to rafting. :loony: Just kidding has been very rough for those guys.July 5, 2010 at 3:36 am #64024Greg WelchParticipant
I liked that track… Its probably ok because Camarillo will build a new one in its place.July 5, 2010 at 12:32 pm #64025Rodney EbersoleParticipant
Quite a mess to look at. Yet it seems the track was built in between dikes designed to control the waters flow?July 5, 2010 at 8:05 pm #64026Greg WelchParticipant
It was. The track was about 20ft below the two freeways it sat between. The river however was also about 15-20ft below the track in its own basin. If you watch the video, the man bridge you see flooding over started at the same height as the track, with the river well below it.July 31, 2010 at 3:01 am #64027
Here is what’s left now that the water has gone. The track and all the buildings, everything but the timing and scoring tower is gone. At this point, there are no plans to rebuild.
