That last one with the guy putting up balloons, there is at least an acre prob 2 that is open and the only thing in the way is a small electrical box in the middle.

On the bright side, there would be less of them after a few events.

Yeah thanks Greg, but I just don't think it will work. We have to be a minimum of 25 ft from poles and more than that if you want a course with any speed to it.

An old-school gymkhana course would work there, but no autocross I'm going to.

The search continues...

Well crap... I tried. I'll keep you guys posted of any car shows here, which we are going to be doing more of next year and if I see anything that would work for an event!
