Default gm proving grounds

have anyone ever been their. they have a visitor center. i went their over the weeking with my dad who work their to bring his tools their and when we drove up we got about half way in the driveway and security was all over us, they took us to the gate and they made me wait at the gate why my dad and them took off the tool box of the trailer. while waiting i saw a v8 feiro and a masked off c6 vette that sounded bada**. at the gate they check ur car to see if anything was taken they open ur trunk and all that stuff. the actual race tracks are fenced off with barb wire and a green mesh so u can see anything. i wanted to bad to walk up to the fence but i didnt have the guts. but yeah it was fun i just wish i could of gotten in with my dad but i do understand the reason why they dont let anyone one in but it still would have been cool.

I've been all around (literally...just around the perimeter) of the grounds in Milford. It'* very well masked off.

A close friend of the family lives across the street from the grounds, on Stobart Rd. You can hear cars ripping up the track from the front porch.
