        The basic website setup for the event mentions F1, warbirds, and Jets ...

        No mention of biplanes, t-6, or sport.

        I'm assuming this is not a work of the current RARA board simply moving the Reno races elsewhere but a completely different group attempting to start their own event to replace it. Which may not be a bad thing ...
        Correct. RARA has zero involvement in this.

          The one that will have to be built in a year to pull this off. They have the land, but nothing else currently.

            T6's are warbirds.......just saying.
            May all your bent wings be F2G Corsairs!

                And only one runway. Sounds like big plans. I hate to be a cynic but do we all remember Phoenix 1994-1995?

                  I commute past that location everyday, and have been Jeeping that area for years. As recently as this past Friday, storm run-off caused a flash flood that came right through there and forced the adjacent highway to be closed for hours. Someday Spaceport? Maybe (after all, its near Vegas). But in a year? Forgeddaboutit!

                    RARA put out a news release about the military participation at NCAR2023 and near the end was this little titbit:
                    While NCAR will move to a new home and location in 2025
                    Zac in NZ

                        I'd gladly go to Wendover for the NCAR, and given the history of the place, I'd love to see Doc and Fifi take a lap there. However, the town might be too small and remote to draw the crowds from all over like Reno has.

                        There are hotels, casinos, and restaurants there, but far fewer than in Reno. As far as Airline service, it's a 2 hour drive from Salt Lake City, probably about 5 hours from Boise, and closer to 6 hours from Reno or Las Vegas.

                          And it's not a good 6 hours from Reno.

                            Well there was the infamous Phoenix 500. That location was decent. Although when the super corsair when straight in, some company nearby was complaining. Not sure if that nixed that location for good or not.

                              Except Wendover has 9 hotels . There's a very small number in the small towns nearby . So that means driving around 1 hour and 44 mins from Salt Lake City one way. If they pick Wendover, fine, but those will be very long days. Not a camper either.

                                The Pueblo Chieftain newspaper had an article yesterday about PUB's bid. Unfortunately, the article is behind a paywall.

                                PUB has the runways, ramp space and open space. And some hotels, but if the turnout is large, some fans would need to drive from Colorado Springs. Is a 45 minute drive too much? My drive from Reno to stead was normally about 25 minutes.
