Dear Fairmont Butte Motorsports Park Supporters,

Thank you all very much for your continued support of FBMP. We are nearing the home stretch for L.A. county approval of the project and hoping we can count on your support once again.

As you may recall from my letter in September, we were very encouraged at the first hearing by the County Planning Commission’s staff recommendation of the project for approval. We were then scheduled for our second public hearing on December 2, but it was recently postponed and the location changed by the county. The new date is Saturday, February 6 at 11:00 a.m. in the Lancaster Regional Public Library, 601 W. Lancaster Blvd., Lancaster, Calif. Please plan to attend the hearing if you can.

As you may have guessed, opponents asked for a change of venue that they hope will benefit their cause. As with the first hearing, interested persons can attend and will have an opportunity to testify. We had a great turnout of supporters last September in Los Angeles but with the second hearing relocated to Lancaster, your support is even more important. We hope you can join us.

Many of you have called asking ‘what can we do?’ We need more letters of support!

The county is again accepting letters as part of its consideration of the project. Opposition groups have organized their own letter writing campaign and have sent over 100 letters since the first hearing. If you did not send a letter of support prior to the first hearing, you have another chance to be heard.

Letters should be addressed to Mr. Jodie Sackett, Los Angeles County, Department of Regional Planning, Room 1382, 320 West Temple St., Los Angeles, CA 90012. Alternatively, you can e-mail Jodie: with a copy to us.

You can also send your support comments directly to Los Angeles County Fifth District Supervisor Mike Antonovich via e-mail at: . If you do, please make sure to copy Jodie Sackett.

If you would like to read about the project in detail and view updates, all of the official documents (including the Draft Environmental Impact Report) can be viewed on the county’s Web site:

We have been working for seven years toward the dream of creating the first new dedicated road racing facility in the L.A. area in over fifty years. We’re closer to approval than ever, but not there yet. If you too want to see Fairmont Butte Motorsports Park become a reality, please let your voice be heard!

Thank you again for your support.

Respectfully,

Thomas E. Malloy
