They just hated him from all aspects. The best part, is that the track is so quiet that it makes them feel like fools now. They expected F1 cars to be running bi-weekly.

too bad he can't rent it out to clubs, would be nice to have a close alternative to Lime Rock since Monticello stopped renting to clubs

I find it very humorous that they were trying to block the track due to noise while there's a parkway less than 1,000 feet away...

people are asses, I just love how people move next to highways and airports and then complain about noise. Then they want to fight people on what they can and can not do with their land and house.

We have a local couple who has been fighting the local high school and township over the school's plans to update their football field to a stadium which has been on the books since the school was build back in the 60's. They been fighting the school for 10 yrs now to stop it because they feel it will disrupt their piece and quite.

These idiot bough a small farm next to a high school, what the hell did they think was going to happen. The guys is a lawyer so he just tying them up in court.

Yeah, the Taconic makes more noise in an hour than a month's worth of activities on the track, lol. Maybe one day I'll sponsor a BMW fest excursion/rally to pitstop there??? Seems like a good spring event
