General: Registration is now open for Project X, our latest automotive airfield event concept.  Project X is your chance for full throttle no speed limit driving on the Aransas County Airfield runway Sunday November 8th, 2015.  The event will last one day.  Driver positions are limited to street cars.  The airfield address is 421 John D Wendell Rd, Rockport, TX 78382 and is roughly 2 hours driving from downtown Houston.  Rainout date will be in 2016.  Project X is a fully private event not open to the public. 
 
Format and Schedule: Mandatory drivers meeting at 9am and the runway goes hot from 10-5pm.  Lunch will be provided. Driving will be unstructured.  You can make single lane test passes on the runway with your vehicle or side by side passes at will.  The runway will be segmented similar to the Texas Invitational but with longer shutdown. We will have our lighting system to start, independent speed lane traps with display, and win lights in place.   
 
Registration: To drive at Project X, complete this PROJECT X REGISTRATION FORM.  30 driver max.  We will handpick drivers for a balanced field.  Once picked you will receive a formal invitation and will be placed on our online driver roster here.  Cost is $310 per driver and $45 per guest. Your registration fee will cover driving for the day and food when served at the event.  Driver and guest spots are non-refundable and non-transferable.  
 
Sponsors: We can only put on events like Project X with your generous support.  If you would like to be a part of the event as a sponsor, please email info@texasspeedsyndicate.com for additional information.  
 
Rules, Terms, and Conditions: The rules, terms, and conditions for the Texas Invitational have been adopted for Project X.  Our policy on refunds, transferability, and more are on that page. By registering for Project, you agree to be bound by all of the rules, terms, and conditions as posted there.

Runway is 16 feet above sea level too.  Aransas/Rockport is a quaint beach town.  Community there is pretty excited so hope we can make em' proud.

Imagine this: You are a very wealthy person... You could afford a Veyron SS (your bank account has 3 million bucks at least). What if you spent that money on buying some land and built a long drag strip (150 feet wide - 5 miles long or more) in order to host Top Speed Challenges, Standing Miles etc. etc.  What do you all think? Is it a bad idea?

I think it's a bad idea to spend ~1/2 your liquid cash on a car & worrying about "investing" in land/development for something you will not see a profitable return on....
You have to understand why there are so many venues for events & that these guys aren't quitting their day-jobs to host these events

OF course they will. Especially those with Veyrons and Koenigseggs. They want to find out the top speed of their cars, don't they?

You don't do this for profit. Just like you don't buy a Porsche for profit. You don't build a 700k UGR R8/Lambo for profit. You simply waste your money on a project that will have zero value after a few decades..... and you will lose hundreds of thousands of dollars to prove you are King of the Street and then few years later the car is broken or crashed or burnt and its value becomes ZERO....  On the other hand, a unique, very long drag strip will not lose most of its value after a few decades. It's still an investment in land that can be inherited! Also it's going to be a testing ground for top speed runs and more....
