No. The track is pretty well secure and probably only accessible by secret passage or hidden dirt entrance. Not gonna tempt getting in while driving a rental.

I did get into another one more local and I need to find those pics that I do own,

Not sure about secret passages or hidden dirt entrances, but we just wandered in after parking at the driving range.

Sweet! I still have work down that way and I may just stop by and do that while dodging golf balls!

Always a bit nervous wandering into someone else's property in GA...

+1

I actually saw the tower today, it's now visible from the motorway since there are no trees around it. It looks really sorry for itself, nothing there to hint about its glory days.

But at least it's there. Like the restored pit buildings at Reims. Unlike Rouen where the locals have literally erased the circuit.....

Not really an abandoned track but a to-be MotoGP venue KymiRing (hopefully in 2020). I visited there yesterday.
