Wurtsmith Airport in Oscoda Michigan. 11,800 foot runway. From what I've heard, the chamber of commerce would love to have LSR events held in their town. It might take some work, but it would be worth it. Trying really hard might make it a success.

This sounds really interesting. Any follow up by Tonya and hubby? Smiley

Maybe you meant the east coast of Michigan? "East Coast of Lake Huron" would be Ontario Province, which surely would be convenient to me- I used to drive there regularly to compete at events in Goderich.

  In 2011 Hemmings magazine has an article about the ECTA losing it's racing at Maxon and was looking for another location....This statement was a comment on the situation...Don't know if it was really true then or now

The Oscoda-Wurtsmith Airport, a former Air Force Base at Oscoda, Michigan, is and has been available at $1,000 per day. You provide the timing equipment, ambulance and safety equipment. I know guys that have been doing testing there for the last couple of years, and I know guys that have run at Maxton. Wurtzmith is in much better condition and safer according to them.

Got it. Aquacentric.

So, the West Bank Timing Association?

Do Michigan authorities negotiate with tourists?

I never really considered central Ohio East Coast. But it was a good place to race.

Another view: this country's only got two coasts, and Michigan sure ain't West Coast.

Geography observations aside, I repeat...Any idea if ECTA is pursuing this venue? It sure sounds interesting. Smiley

I have seen little if any evidence that Keith, Tanya or Brian follow what goes on here. I'd suggest sending them direct emails to bring sites like this to their attention and see what they say.
