Sandbox Hawaii Bringing Motocross to HonoluluThursday, August 27, 2009 | 11:48 AM
The BMX and RC Track have been finished and the group is working on the start of the pee wee track. The BMX and RC Track will “officially” open for business on 1 October 2009. The rest of the facility will soon follow. At Monday’s groundbreaking ceremony, Motocross Hall of Famer John “The Flyin Hawaiian” DeSoto spoke to a crowd of about a hundred and said “Hawaii has football fields, baseball fields and soccer fields for kids, but for motocross there is only Kahuku which is only open on weekends and Federal Holidays”.
SIOHVA is still looking for potential sponsorship opportunities. Reid Shimabukuro, President of the Association says that “any sponsor who is interested should take a look at this location, you’ll be blown away”! He would also like to mention that the park has the support of the State and has faced little to no opposition. Check out the website for more information – www.sandboxhawaii.com.
Ride with Pride!
