That would be Los Angeles County Raceway in Littlerock. I'm pretty sure the motocross track is staying around, though.
I have *heard* that if you buy methanol in 55gal drums and pick it up yourself, the price can get knocked down below $4/gal. Finding distributors that deal with small quantities and the public is the hard part.
I'm not sure, but the local speedshop wanted $8/gal for their methanol. The big bike shop around here wanted $10/gal and up for VP gasolines and didn't carry methanol.
Methanol and ethanol are different alcohols. One we get drunk on, the other will blind or kill you if injested enough. Methanol is "wood alcohol" derived from wood. Ethanol is produced by sugars (corn, cane, sugar) or anything with sugar in it. Corn just happens to have a high sugar content, is cheap to grow, and grows in many climates. I have not looked at the difference at SG, but imagine it is similar. Brazil uses Ethanol, by way of I believe sugar cane. There must be some reason we use Methanol here in the states for racing versus Ethanol. This is the question I now have. Just wondering if it has something to do with our Alcohol laws and sin tax on it? Or is methanol a superior alcohol to use for racing. At $2.50 ish a gallon for 90% Ethanol 10% gasoline this may be a good fuel to play with versus $4.00 and up for methanol, or race fuels. I'm still not sold on it, but will start to look into it. Anyone else with info???????
