    Bandimere closing in 2023

    Although I am away from CO but as it will always be considered home for me, I couldn't help but hear of the sad news about Bandimere shutting down after all. At first, I thought it was all rumors as per usual and as it had always been while I lived up there for 20+ years. Heard some stories and rumors about why they shut down but honestly have my doubts and also I doubt they'll re-open, mainly by DIA. Second Creek shut down because of the expansion in those areas and also all the money hungry developers owning city halls and local government officials, I doubt they'll let them build how they got in mind, I foresee them taking the money and just stepping away altogether, doubt the money they gave them would even be enough to rebuild a brand new track and everything that comes with it mainly in this day and age. Will definitely be weird when I visit again and not seeing that track there anymore, that will take some getting used to mainly having met at MoCo for so many years (Morrison Road Conoco there off C-470 for those of you who don't know). Although I was more of a HPR guy but was cool to go to the test and tune and the CHP take it to the track nights events which kept a lot of the street racing off the roads, now I can't wait to hear all the moron Karens that helped shut down the track complaint about racing on 470 and increased drag racing along the metro areas. Bradenton Motorsports Park south of where I live is about to fall to the same developmental bs, they almost shut down last year but they were able to keep going for the time being but only a matter of time for them.

    What's your take on this?

    No opinion on it really. I imagine they'll find a new spot for another track - rumor is out by DIA.

    Anyway, you'll have to do a quick Google for the John Force interview about it. Very short - but passionate - perspective he talked about the other day.

    I rarely think of motorcycles without a little yearning. They are about moving, and humans, I think, yearn to move its in our cells, in our desires. We quiet our babies with cyclic movement, and we quiet ourselves by going.

    It's going at a glacial pace, but it's going!
