US Grand Prix Master Plan Unveiled

by F1Fan on October 3, 2010

Full Throttle Productions the promoter and Circuit developer of the new US Grand Prix circuit in Austin Texas recently released information on the Master Plan for the Austin Circuit.

The conceptual master plan features the development of the United States’ first purpose-built F1 racetrack complemented by additional visitor attractions including a proposed Driving/Riding Experience and Seminar Building, Motorsports Driving Club, Kart Track and Welcome Center.

The multifunctional facility is ideally situated on a 900-acre site in southeast Austin along the SH 130 corridor near FM 812. The proposed grandstands, temporary stands and natural seating areas created by integrating natural grass berms and picnic areas for families will enable over 120,000 to attend the venue’s first event: the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix 2012.

The multifunctional facility is being designed with year-round functionality and attractions. Proposed attractions within the racetrack development include:

  • Driving/Riding Experience and Seminar Building: The facility and racetrack will provide the ideal location for manufacturers to test, launch and educate dealers as well as consumers. The facility will feature classroom settings, virtual driving experiences and will provide the opportunity for test-driving on the racetrack, streets and off-road courses.
  • Motorsports Driving Club: The membership-only club will serve as a luxury destination featuring an array of hospitality services and amenities. The club will offer its members professional instruction, customized driving courses, premium car storage and concierge level services.
  • Kart Track: The outdoor karting track will be designed to provide an experience for youth and adults of all ages. The track, open to the public, will specialize in orchestrating custom group events, team building programs, celebratory events, fund-raisers as well as individual experiences.

Well if the implementation lives up to the Master Plan it looks like Austin could well end up with a world class Formula One motor racing circuit.

Lets hope that is the case!
