    We have a fresh, new way of reporting and punishing incidents in the Racing Club, using an infractions system - read more here

    You are actively encouraged to use this system - we like to keep driving standards high - so if you feel you were wronged in any way during an event simply send the event organiser a private message detailing the incident including a youtube video. Do not post reports/accusations in the thread itself - negativity and anger gets us nowhere.

    Flying through the Dunes of Long Island New York! Strap in and hang on!

    This is an ATCC potential venue and we are testing it to find out how it races with 25 monsters on track!:rolleyes:

    That fateful summer of 1953, a rare melding of captains of industry and urbane New Yorkers came together with local merchants, farmers and shade-tree mechanics to begin planning America 's first purpose built road racing circuit. The Bridgehampton Road Races Corporation (BRRC) was authorized to issue stock on November 30, 1953 . Its officers were local businessmen and the Board of Directors included representatives from the Motor Sports Club of America, Sports Car Club of America and Long Island Sports Car Association plus the larger-than-life proprietor of the Long Island Automotive Museum , Henry Austin Clark Jr.
    The directors immediately began searching for an appropriate site for the new circuit. An uninhabited hilltop on the north slope of the glacial ridge west from Sag Harbor looked promising. Known as "the backwoods", these lands were granted to local settlers by King James II as part of a Royal Charter in 1685 and were later parceled out to nearby farmers for hunting and foraging. The site of the future Bridgehampton Race Circuit still retained ancient Indian spear-points and an extensive network of Indian hunting trails

    The race circuit reflected the best features of three of Europe 's finest race courses: Zandvoort, slicing through the sand dunes of Holland , Spa-Francorchamps, tunneling through the Ardennes forest in Belgium , and the roller-coaster excitement of England 's Brands Hatch. The site layout featured a jaw-dropping 180-degree view of Long Island 's North Fork , Shelter Island , Sag Harbor and the sailboats on Peconic Bay . The circuit had four vertical elevation changes totaling 130 feet and eight distinct corners, including a banked hairpin curve around a hillock at the lowest point of the course. A flat-out straightaway nearly 3/4 of a mile long suddenly disappears into a hair-raising decreasing radius downhill curve, known as Millstone Turn. More than one international star has called this steep decline, which is blind and taken flat out in most race cars, the most difficult turn in racing. Sam Posey, for one, said that sailing off the abyss in a sports racer was like “flying into an air pocket” in a plane.
