Next county over. Funny J. (You know I was referring to New Providence and not Bong Island, right?)At our NNJR Holiday party this year, I was looking at some old photos of a DE we had at Bridgehampton (well before my time) from back in the 80's I think. Not sure on the time frame.Looked like a cool little track with a very laid back vibe.From your wiki link:Bridgehampton Race Circuit was a race track located near Sag Harbor, New York, United States. The circuit opened in 1957, following a series of road races held from 1949 until 1953. It was one of the first permanent road racing venues in the United States, opening after Thompson Speedway, two years after Road America, the year after Watkins Glen International, and the same year as Lime Rock Park and Laguna Seca Raceway.[1] In its early years, Bridgehampton was host to major international series, including the World Sportscar Championship, Can-Am, and NASCAR Grand National. By the early 1970s, the track was used mostly for amateur events.

Just registered for PCA Zone 2 DE at VIR 3/16, 17, and 18. All 3 days, Full Course.
Very psyched.
Anyone else going?

I also was going to registered for that one, but the frigid weather is delaying work thats needs to be done.
I have a complete cooling system rebuild, waterpump, thermostat, hoses, coolant tank, and complete GT3 center radiator kit , which requires some bumper work.
Then a new Numeric and cables, shiftlight and auto-blip shift.
I wish it was a couple weeks later in the month,

Let me know if you change your mind and can make it. Cigars and Scotch are on me. Always love meeting RL's at events.
My track car is in right now for oil, filter, new Giro-disc rotors, brake fluid flush, and a new tow hook package. (So I don't have to loop through those nasty brake dust filled wheels).
I will be ready for the 2 March DE's at VIR.
Hoping for ma nature to cooperate. Southern Virginia in March can go either way.
Try to go to the the Zone 2 one if you can.
