That is where the tunnel was / is going to be. It is at Pit In & the road currently goes to the level of the paddock where the FFords park.



Well, at the very least they are going to repave the 9/10 sequence of corners and get rid of the concrete patch in 10! Who hoo, I am all in favour of that. Look at the bright side of all the things that are going on, I really like it.

Whoa! They broke it :(

They really need better access roads and facilities -- change is a good thing.

Thats right before turn 10. It was a fussy bit of track at that point...where a racecar is transitioning its weight right to left. I'll bet the track will have a weird hump there now. Its going to take an entire season to figure it out.
<edit>
Actually now that I remember it...thats exactly where I backed my car into the wall in September.

We have been asked by Mosport to limit public speculation of what may be in store for Mosport as it does not help Permit acquisition.We have been told by Mosport that the only significant improvement we will see in the 2012 season is the Tunnel and yes it will handle tractor trailers in opposite directions plus pedestrian access.
The alignment to the tunnel will be straightened and the track access will be closer to Registration.The tunnel will deposit you into the lower paddock and the former road to the left up the hill will not be replaced.We will use all of the same buildings in 2012 that we used in 2011.That is all the news Mosport has provided

:suspicious:

Limit public speculation? The public will think and say whatever they want to think and say. If you want to limit speculation, don't let them speculate. Be clear about your intentions.

They likely don't want rumors fueling/feeding any discussions at any local zoning meetings.

Building permits. They got none.
I can imagine that constructing a vehicular tunnel, on a piece of property with a public occupancy...would be a bureaucratic nightmare.
I think they are taking a "build it and ask for permission later" approach.
