KRP Video - HWN Affairs Committee - Jan 17th, 2014 - Watch now!

Hello Racers and Supporters,

We have posted the video from the Hawaiian Affairs Committee Briefing held on Jan 17th, 2014.

If you have been following the story thus far by watching our videos, you will know that we had given the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) until December 31st to contact us with a plan to address and resolve our issues concerning Kalaeloa Raceway Park.

As a result of this, we reached out to our Senators and requested an informational briefing on the actions of DHHL with the Hawaiian Affairs Committee, that was then held on Friday, January 17th at the State Capitol. We considered this the to be the next step in resolving our current situation.

The end result of this meeting was that the Hawaiian Affairs Committee recognized the problems derived from DHHL's actions, including a Personality Driven administration and the fact that DHHL has the right to exempt their properties from permitting requirements such as the letter originally allowing KRP to operate without them plus the other companies that are continuing to be exempted.

In addition, the Comittee identified that Kalaeloa Raceway Park detrimentally relied on the guidance provided initially by DHHL, and asked DHHL whether they could grandfather and work out our issues due to that detrimental reliance.  It was also suggested that DHHL recognize our need and allow us to use the lower portion of our property as originally agreed to in our revocable permit.

We are very pleased that the Senate recognized our issues and look forward to sitting down with DHHL with a proposed solution.We'll keep  you updated on our progress and thank you for your support.

The video contains testimony and Q&A from  DHHL, KRP owner Mr. George Grace III, Sabrina Grace, Michael Kitchens, and the Hawaiian Affairs Committee.

Of special note, please follow the links to specific segments of the briefing:

Aloha,

If you have been following the story thus far by watching our videos, you will know that we had given the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) until December 31st to contact us with a plan to address and resolve our issues concerning Kalaeloa Raceway Park.

As a result of this, we reached out to our Senators and have requested an informational briefing on the actions of DHHL with the Hawaiian Affairs Committee to be held on Friday, January 17th, 2013 from 9AM to 11:30AM in Room 224 at the State Capitol. This is the next step in resolving our current situation.

This is your opportunity to support If you wish to attend to bear witness to this discussion. We welcome your attendance. No public testimony will be presented during the briefing, however you may submit positive written testimony in support of Kalaeloa Raceway Park to Senator Maile Shimabukuro at maileshimabukuro@yahoo.com.

Here is a sample template letter for your use: Sample Letter Template

We present this briefing as evidence that we are trying and have been trying since late 2006 to establish Kalaeloa Raceway Park as a fully functioning motorsports park. For those of you waiting for asphalt, these issues to be discussed are the reason we are not there yet. If you want to understand the full scope of what we have been dealing with, we invite you to attend.

We appreciate your continued support and look forward to another great year of racing in 2014.

Mahalo,

The Kalaeloa Raceway Park Team
