Other than "why the hell would they want to make sixteen thousand different configurations?"

Is this the answer to autocrossers' complaints about most tracks?

Depends what they want to use it for.
If they are going to be doing special training they may want multiple configurations. Different configurations also effect the cost by requiring different numbers of personnel. VIR has 4 configurations. Shenandoah has multiple configurations. I think SPR have a few configurations as well.

I don't like a road course for autocrossers. The transition into the Patriot section at VIR just does not flow. Not for me at least.

I wouldn't mind a track within 3 hours away.

Isn't that kind of what Shenandoah has been likened to?

But the true value of something the Shenandoah is for their real meat and potatoes work, advanced driver training, especially security driver training.

Racing is fine, but having driver training almost 5 days a week really helps pay the bills. :)

Not only gov, but all the private security people. And people around the world who WANT private secutiry people and can afford them.

Nick,

It looks like many of the small twisty tracks (next to the North Paddock - in the in-field) are for go-karts.

And, what's wrong with turns? That's where you get to have fun.

No, they didn't ask me about track configurations, but being an autoxer at heart, I sure won't complain.

It's not the turns, it's the "see how often we can change the track" factor. :p

But then autocrossers benefit. DE guys seem to think it takes several weekends to learn a track.. Autocrossers do it in a couple of laps. :)

Amen Terry! If I could I would drive a different track every event. The most fun is trying to master a new track your first session.
