Who wants to invest in this?

CB Richard Ellis, is pleased to present a unique opportunity to acquire fee simple interest in the former Honda Proving Center which consists of ± 4,255 acres that includes the former American Honda West Coast test tracks, related facilities and improvements in
Cantil, California.

The property is located in an unicorporated area of Kern County, seven miles north of California City, and the main site (±3,797 acres) is improved with specialized test tracks, support facilities and infrastructure, designed to implement a broad range of automobile, motorcycle and ATV vehicle and product evaluations.

The recent closure of the facility and sale offering provides a rare chance to secure a superbly designed facility that would be cost prohibitive to duplicate today. The main site (±3,797 acres) has completed requirements for the Desert Tortoise Habitat plan, allowing a “fast-track” approach to potential development/solar farm uses, should an interested party desire to change the use of the property.

The main site is improved with the former Honda Proving Center, which was specifically designed as a vehicle testing facility. Located within two hours of Los Angeles International Airport, the site offers on-site paved test courses including a 7.5 mile oval track and 4.5 mile winding road, modeled after common North American public roads, dirt roads, gravel roads, MX/SX race tracks and natural desert terrain for a full range of test conditions. The main site has perimeter fencing and a private 1.5 mile asphalt driveway leading to a security office, gated access, and the office/warehouse buildings. Privacy is achieved with man made berms and selective plantings of non-native trees. Also included are the out-parcel land sites totaling ±457 acres.

not really cutting back, just selling an asset they no longer use.
the new test track is in Ohio.

Hmm im in. Buy it break it up in pieces keeping the track intact for public/private use and selling the non needed areas for other things

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .
