So...What's Next?

There's alot of people asking the question "So what's next? When do we find out more information?".  This site is the repository for those questions and their answers.  In time, we'll have more in-depth articles on the process before us, but the following is the gameplan for the near future.  These are requirements that must be met to move Kalaeloa Raceway Park (KRP) forward.  This is just something to whet your appetite, and let you know that yes...we are making and continuing progress.  This list is designed to be fluid and ever-changing.  We will add and take things away if necessary.

  • Present To The Hawaii Community Development Authority (HCDA) - KRP Project Planners are required to make a detailed presentation before the HCDA to address their and the community's concerns over the development of KRP.  Our goal is to respect HCDA's Master Plan for the future redevelopment of Kalaeloa into a burgeoning "Wahi Ho'okela" (Center for Excellence) while maintaining positive community relations as well as coordinating with local and state organizations within the area.  This presentation is currently being scheduled, but we expect it to fall sometime during the month of June.  We will post the date once we are notified.  This is a chance for all of us who support building a motorsports park to appear and support respectfully.  We will keep you updated.

  • Coordinate With Concerned Local Agencies - There are many concerned agencies and organizations what want to know what our plans for KRP entail.  It is our duty and our committment to coordinate with these agencies.  Steps will be taken to open direct dialogues and keep them abreast of our goals as well as working with them to address any possible concerns they have with the project.  This is something that will continue throughout the entire life of the project, but it starts first here.

  • Complete The Necessary Plans And Designs - Our talented crew of professionals and dedicated volunteers are currently working through the design process for KRP.  It is a constant lesson of compromise and patience as we work through the conflicts and issues that result from supporting so many varied types of motorsports.  Our goal is to support everything we can...if not in the beginning, then in phases, and as we are able to.  This facility is for everyone, and we intend to make it so.  Once we are in a position to release Phase design information, we will post it on this very site.

  • Groundbreaking - Although the date is not set yet, in the very near future, a groundbreaking ceremony will be held to celebrate and announce the start of construction.  This will be an open and public event, and we hope that the entire community will attend to bear witness to the first step in a new world for racing on Oahu.  We will post the date once it is set.

  • Construction - Build it, and they will come.  We firmly believe that as construction progresses on the facility, the support and encouragement will come with it.  We will have regular updates on construction and details that have been completed or are in progress.  You'll be able to see literally and figuratively what it takes to build a facility from laying the dirt and ashpalt to putting up the lights.  We want you to be right there with us with every accomplishment we make.  So that when we open the track...

  • Race! -  Self explanatory...we hope that we'll see you there on opening day.  It's a long road ahead but with everyone's support....we can make it happen.

This is real...there is a lease, there are hurdles to cross, but we are on our way to construction of a home for our displaced motorsports community.  Please keep an eye on this site, pass it to your friends, coworkers, and family and spread the word.  We need all the support we can get...you can start by sending in your testimony of support for this project by clicking here:  Support!


Until the next update, Aloha & Mahalo!

 

Support!

 

You can help make this dream a reality!

Kalaeloa Raceway Park is still in the construction phases.  Asphalt has yet to be laid, and there are still challenges and concerns from the DHHL. The road ahead of all of us is a long and hard journey but as a community, we can make a difference.  You can make a difference.  It will take many voices, united, to hurdle the challenges before us and that's where you, the concerned supporter, plays the biggest card.  Your voice, your vote, your support is paramount to making KRP more than just a dream.

What can you do?

There is a pressing need to show DHHL, the City Council, the State Legislature, and politicians in general, that there is as much support for this project as possible. The more support we have the easier it will be to get around the “hurdles” we are sure to have facing us. We need written testimony from you stating you support the P24 project fully. This testimony needs to include who you are, your occupation, your racing background, and the benefits you believe a track will bring.  Regardless of your background, regardless of whether you're a racer or simply an enthusiastic supporter; we need to show the people who make the decisions that we are not a small group but instead are a diverse and vibrant community, young and old from all walks of life.  Most importantly, we need to show our need for our own place to call home.

We ask for your support by taking five to ten minutes out of your day to take pen to paper and support the developer and our efforts to make this happen.  Please write a letter of support in your own words using the attached letter templates.  It is very important that this letter represents YOU, your opinion...so make it as personal as possible and be sure to sign it!  A self-written and signed letter is worth ten times a mass-copied template!

Make sure your letters are addressed to no-one.  This is very imporant! All letters will be collected, and mass forwarded to the Chairman of DHHL as well as copies given to other responsible authorities, such as the City Council, Mayor, State Legislature, Governor, etc.

We cannot stress hard enough how important this small act is to our efforts!  Please don't make this a missed opportunity!  Join us in our efforts to bring racing back to Oahu!
