    I was expecting to read the property was being turned into a golf resort.

    I am stunned that is not already happened I don't know the property situation. but I would be very surprised if that track is around in a decade....there's more money living there to the Bay area than most Americans can't even comprehend..

    WTF! Honestly I'm not too surprised but I wish they would have announced it earlier before I spend $$$$ on accommodations and plane tickets for me and the family

    People have been saying that for decades. The property is government owned.

    Makes me wonder if the event will happen- obviously I hope it does, for selfish reasons. But I wonder if it's financially viable with no fans? I guess they are between a rock and a hard place, considering they committed to a 10 round series and they are running out of options for tracks.

    My understadning is that campers may still attend, however, there is no access to the pits or fan acitivites.

    All these years I never realized that.....duh and it's fairly obvious in the 80s I sat on the Fort Ord side and watched two years of 500cc Grand Prix races for free along with many others on base.
    Those local hotels up there really got my goat one year. I placed a reservation 7 months in advance at the Best Western on the beach, it's a pretty damn nice place for a Best Western, with courtyards for my dog and everything.
    We arrived two days before the Grand Prix and they tell me my hotel reservation was cancelled, and obviously where she at I was never notified, they raised the rates $700 a night and had given to another party.... And they had no current vacancy.I just about brought the roof down raised a big scene.... Then my wife got involved things got serious, we did not get our courtyard room but got another room facing the beach.
    We called Best Western filed a complaint and got four nights free at a Best Western of our choice.
    F@#kers up there.... Gouging everybody for rooms even Motel 6s were going for $500.00 a night. And then they wonder why the fans didn't attend like they did in the 80s. That was the last time I went there.... Been there nine times that was the last I just watch it on TV now

    Rates in the 80's were nosebleed, too. We used to be 4-6 to a room until we gave up and started renting a house on the beach 30 mins away for the race weekends.

    Same here! This thread is a relief. It’ll come eventually though. No way all that money lets a bunch of fucking peasants keep standing up their air with their noisy motorbikes and cars.
