...and to clarify OB's obviously correct suggestion...

...Brisbane. From my house, Queensland Raceway is 35 minutes away (rode a half day there today), Lakeside is 45 minutes, and Morgan Park is two hours away. Add a full 12 months of great weather to ride them in and it's all win, all the time. There's an Air Force Base right next to Queensland Raceway, so you're all set for work.

Don't get me wrong, down south is nice and all, but not enough tracks and it gets cold and stuff.

Best? not where I am but just for reference you are looking at 55 degree daytime highs from mid march to late october if it's a warm day here in York, PA

If you move to this area you are...
3.5 hrs from NJMP (NJ)
2.5 hrs from Summit point (WV)
5.5 hrs from beaverrun (PA)
5 hrs from nccar (NC)
6.5 to vir (VA)
6 to NYST (new track) (NY)

And more farther away, those are just the tracks that seem to be the most popular in no particular order. Most of these have at least two separate configurations to run.

ABQ = year round riding.

Tracks:

Arroyo Seco ~3.75hrs
Pueblo ~5.5hrs
Inde ~ 5.5 hrs
Pikes Peak ~6.5 hrs
HPR ~7 hrs
AMP ~8 hrs
Miller ~10 hrs

I've made it to all of the above in a days drive.. long ass day, but a day. I've raced at all from Napa to HPR and driven home on the same day.

Buttonwillow~ 13 hrs
