Palmer Motorsports Park 2015-12-03

Scratch build track

    Palmer Motorsports Park is an operating motorsports park in Hampden County, Massachusetts, located at the intersection of West Ware Road and Bacon Road in the town of Palmer. The creation of the track was approved by Palmer on December 4, 2007, and in 2009 underwent review by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection. Upon its completion, Palmer will feature a 2.3-mile road course.

    Palmer is a "flagship" track of the New England Region (NER) of the Sports Car Club of America. Like Buttonwillow Raceway Park in California, owned and operated by SCCA's Cal Club Region, Palmer is owned and operated by a limited liability company created by NER. As of 2015, NER operates at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire, Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Connecticut, and Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in Thompson, Connecticut. Due to their heavy use by NASCAR and other racing entities, the costs of renting these tracks has become steeper (combined with the remote location and high cost of lodging at Lime Rock), and as part of the club's continuing mission to provide more opportunities for its members to race, NER proposed the creation of their own track. However, the region has divested itself of any legal and financial responsibility for the creation and operation of the track as of early 2015.

    Despite delays with the previous developers, work on Palmer continued by partners Fred Ferguson and Jonathan Fryer in 2014-2015. It opened in May 2015.

    Road & Track magazine has named Palmer Motorsports Park one of the top 10 racetracks to drive in North America.

    This is still a WIP I would like to improve some textures, the sky, and add more objects. The track is ready to race and should be fun with some Game Stock Car Content. Please leave some constructive feedback and thoughts on improvement.

    Thanks and have fun!!

    Didn't disappoint, such a fun little track, and you've done a great job so far.
    Look forward to seeing the polish applied to finish it off. Top stuff.
