2018 has been a tough year for us here at Island. We have raindated or lost every big event thus far this season, and have only completed 2 full weekends the whole season, one of which was over 100 degrees. Every time we raindate an event, we in turn lose a potential test & tune day, so it is a vicious cycle.
Regardless, we are not giving up on our fight to keep racing, but we need some help. The recent flood has progressed our need for some repairs much quicker, and estimates have been in the $90-$100,000 range.
We have been fighting an uphill battle since reopening in 2013, but this is by far the worst year from a weather standpoint. We have finally gotten our septic installed and approved, but that has taken up all of our financial resources, and without having any decent weekends in the last 5 months, we haven’t been able to start recouping nearly as quickly as we should have.
If you like what we do and appreciate our efforts, despite the obstacles we have faced, please consider sending a donation our way. Everything can help and is appreciated.
