Bradley Circuit
Description Track built in 2000, on the old concrete runways of Naval Air Station - Hitchcock, used during Second World War and then abandoned, leaving all what needed for build a circuit: an open area, hundreds of thousands of tons of gravel, sand and concrete along with a great site drainage system, city water, sewer and electricity. As it is quite short, it’s used both for cars and karts.

Nevertheless, stress caused by bad matching between asphalt and concrete created some cracks on track surface. So the circuit was closed and reopened, probbaly in Spring 2006 (today, May 12nd 2006 it has already reopened)
