Upscale racetrack, country club set to break ground in Maricopa
MARICOPA, Ariz. — The typical country club doesn’t often involve motor sports, but that’s exactly the combination one company will soon bring to the Valley.
The Scottsdale-based Private Motorsports Group has acquired 280 acres of land in the city of Maricopa, with the intentions of building a new Apex Motor Club.
The $25 million complex will combine a 12,000-foot clubhouse with a four-mile, multi-configuration race track. The planned location is near State Routes 347 and 238, about a half-an-hour from Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport.
“This state-of-art-private motorsports club has been in the making for the last two years and we are so thrilled to finally announce our development on the Maricopa parcel,” Private Motorsports CEO Jason Plotke said in a release. “We are equally elated to finally bring a private racing club of this caliber to the Phoenix Metropolitan area and now the Valley of the Sun will be joining an impressive list of other cities to offer a private high-tier racing experience for our members.”
Private Motorsports Group said it has already received over 240 membership inquiries, and estimates its total member count will eventually be around 450. The cost of membership will range from $18,000 to $75,000.
The project was designed by Bob Barnard of Motorsports Service International, and is scheduled to begin construction by the second quarter of 2017.
