    Now this is a fun event, even if you aren't a redneck.

    http://www.sussex-county-fair.org

    August 8th 8:00 & Aug 9th 7:30pm

    Here you can see a 90 Cadillac Deville run straight pipes from the heads out the hood. Now that's loud! Belching fire & exhaust gas aooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
    Honda's running around bouncing off the walls!
    Perhaps we can enter JC in the event with a Talon!


    I know you need to pay for entrance to park
    the rest of the fair (animals, crafts, standard carnival rides, etc) and a special fee for the Derby. Maybe $20 all together. The general fair may not be of interest, but the demolition is a hoot!

    if I recall correctly it is just a PIA to get there, going up 15 is fine but when it narrows it becomes a long line of cars :(

    Just like the Ren festival, you need to go early. Then there's no problem.
    Otherwise, you are right.

    It is a pain in the ass to get there. I live about 15 minutes north of there and commute every day to Clifton.

    No. I don't really know where a lot of things are up here. Never got around to explore.

    I had in-laws on Quarryville rd. Sound familiar?

    All though the back roads are wonderfully rising & falling with interesting twists, they aren't always in the best of condition for Ferrari runs. I had the fcar up there last year for the demolision derby. parking on a rutty field wasn't too much fun.

    ok I know where that is, clyde, yeah I have not taken the f-car up there yet - partly because our house is at the end of dirt road, that said very little coppers up there, stop signs are more like yields :)

    I think Fishbulb would come out looking a little worse for wear than NayNay's.

    You could, however, enter a Talon or better...Lincoln Continental as the FerrariChat entry :)

    FYI... the parking lot is a simple grassy field with no lines... its always muddy and messy. I wldnt drive a car to the fair that I really cared abt.

    Wife and I have gone severals times over the years.
