We’re riding this Sunday at PBIR and this might be the last time!
We have a contract for April 24th that we were guaranteed the last few months but that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. So this may be the last event at Palm Beach International Raceway.
Start Time Change for this Sunday
Due to the cleanup from the drag race event on Saturday night, the gates will open at 9:00 am with the first session beginning at 11:00am with riding sessions continuing until 7:00pm.
No Camping / Drop off Saturday Night
Due to the expected volume from the drag racing event Saturday night there will be no camping inside or outside the front gates or Saturday night dropoffs.
What’s going to happen to Palm Beach International Raceway?
The property has not changed hands and will not for at least the next couple months. Palm Beach county has to approve of the zoning change before that happens.
There is still a chance the track could remain a viable entity. If you would like to help there is a zoning meeting tomorrow morning. These are government employees. There will be another meeting in front of elected Palm Beach County officials next month.
PBIR Zoning Commission Meeting on April 7 (Thursday) @ 9 AM
