Motor Sport News - - News -

A new mo­tor­sport hub de­signed by Bri­tish race track en­gi­neer­ing firm Apex Cir­cuit De­sign is to be built in Ari­zona in the United States.

Attesa will fea­ture two 2.6-mile road cour­ses, a kart­ing track, a driver ex­pe­ri­ence area and also ca­pac­ity for other multi-sur­face events. It is also aim­ing to be­come a cen­tre for trans­port de­sign in­no­va­tion and ed­u­ca­tional part­ner­ships with com­pa­nies in the au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try.

“Attesa will be the op­ti­mum rac­ing en­ter­tain­ment des­ti­na­tion that will draw guests from all over the world, driv­ing new jobs and con­tribut­ing taxes to lo­cal economies,” says Dan Erickson of Dan­rick Builders, which has an­nounced the pro­ject.

“Our model is in­com­pa­ra­ble to any other de­vel­op­ment in the United States. We’ll com­bine speed, lux­ury ex­pe­ri­ences and mo­tor­sports op­por­tu­ni­ties for in­di­vid­u­als from all walks of life.”

It is hoped the cir­cuit could at­tract ma­jor events in the long-term, with the track built to a stan­dard ca­pa­ble of hold­ing Indycar, Mo­togp and in­ter­na­tional sportscar rac­ing.
