The developers of a new community aren’t looking to please PGA fans with world-class golf. The 1.5 MPH of a golf cart is just too slow. These developers are gunning for clients that are more comfortable at 150MPH.
These real estate developers are planning a new community in North Carolina geared to satisfy motor sport fans, High Rock Raceway.
Here’s how it will work. A 2.15 mile paved racetrack will weave throughout the developed area in a serpentine fashion that will allow for plenty of opportunity to test the redline. What’s the big deal? After all, there are plenty of racetracks where amateurs can get in some drive time. None like this, promise the developers of the new community.
There are current plans for about 120 condos (over 80 have already been sold) with direct track access, so that motor sport enthusiasts can open their garage and take a run around the racetrack. I say “motorsports” fans because motorcycle racing will also be a featured event at High Rock Raceway.
Nor will the development be aimed only at those for whom racing is a hobby. Part of the new NC development will be dedicated to providing a home for small- and medium-sized motor cycle and auto racing teams, complete with facilities for business headquarters.
“It is nice to see motorsports enthusiasts being catered too in such a large scale way,” says Ron Sturgeon. Sturgeon, a Texas-based businessperson knows a thing or two about catering to the car enthusiast.
Sturgeon started his Dallas luxury car rental company by drawing on the numerous performance cars in his personal paddock. “I’ve always loved exotic cars and I’m excited to have the opportunity to share the exotic cars that I love to drive with other hardcore petrol heads,” said Mr. Sturgeon.“
“Dallas-Fort Worth has something similar in concept to the NC development in our Motorsports Ranch,” says Sturgeon. “I expect to see more of these track-centered developments appearing in cities where fans of high performance driving live and work,” says the Dallas commercial real estate developer.
In addition to the exotic car rental business, Sturgeon has started a car sharing club in Dallas called DFW Elite Car Club. “With so many of the best driving cars in the world—the Ferrari F430 F1, the Lamborghini Gallardo, the Bentley GTC—having prices around the 200k mark, exotic car sharing is a great alternative for the person who wants to drive a variety of the best cars in the world regularly,” says DFW Elite Car Cub GM Tom Warren.
