Jut curious??Autocross.Parkinglot racing.

looking into parking lot racing. Seems like you could setup a little business running weekend races.We have alocal 1/8th drag strip around here but seems auto cross Id popular .Get a acre off land .In N.C. thats about $4,00 per acre..abouts.Pave a 1/2 acre .
"The average cost to pave an asphalt parking lot in South Jersey varies from market to market and is contingent on several factors listed below. The average cost in the South Jersey Market for a 50,000 sq ft parking lot ranges in price from $1.25 - $1.50 per square foot for a 1 ½” – 2” compacted"
Not sure what cost is in N.C. Probably cheaper in N.C..Half acre is 21780 square foor @ $1.50 is $32670.
So under $40 thousand get you some property and a parking lot
Idont know how much a simple 1/3 mile drag strip that usually does most of its business on weekend would make.Probably could Mon-Friday have a racing school.
I dont know just wondering If a Autocross parking lot track would make any money,

I'm thinking your numbers are low....that is assuming cleared level ground and I bet to get a durable job you'll need process material too. If you are interested in this the way to try it would be to rent an existing parking lot think auto-x around the old Circuit City.

Even so if there was $ in it there would be folks doing this successfully. making $ only on wknds ain't easy.


2012 V6 traded in for a 2017 VW GTI.
