Although Bonneville Speedway would be fun, I agree that any test sections really need to be in an area where cars will never go. Military test areas are great places because they are almost always vacant, far from populated locations, have no road access and mostly flat.

You also don't run into private property issues where we're drawing roads on someone's property out there.

Parks / national forest/ BLM lands don't work well, because the public will eventually wander in there, no matter how remote you think it is.

Naw, we'd get map problems every August during speed week as all the drivers ignored the false roads. I was thinking either a bit to the south in the Air force test range or in the south-eastern Utah deserts.

There's lots of land available in Nevada and Arizona too, typically not near anything. New Mexico probably too...



NO!!!! Please!!!! Don't put nonexistent stuff in New Mexico. We're trying really hard to get New Mexico updated without having bogus stuff there.

Why don't they define some land and grant everyone permission? :P

No one has editing rights there. No defined land means no editing possible.
