Looks like about 500x500 with another paddock lot nearby. If the pavement is decent, it looks like a good candidate

I received a call Friday from a Borla employee re: use of their lot. I think the lot is acceptable. A friend and my self contacted Borla. Ed Esser a x scca instructor knows the Borla family. The lady inquired about the intended use. I explained about the club and SCCA & Ins. She is thinking about possible PR for Borla. She will look at the SCCA & ETRSCCA sites to get more informed and then discuss it with the owners.

The Borla plant was both plants as they changed hands. It is first exit just past the Milligan College exit off I-26. I hope they permit the club to use it. Especially since my car is too loud for PS.
