Argentinians have a passion for motorsport, but have not hosted a F1 event since the mid 90’s. This privately funded project would see the phased construction of a state of the art racing circuit and associated facilities in the heart of Argentina capable of hosting a FIA race. In addition to the 5.5km of FiA compliant track, the final scheme will house a training academy, driver training centre, an off-road park, two luxury hotels, serviced apartments, a conference centre, retail village, luxury clubhouse and numerous brand houses. The development is situated near the town of Zarate approximately 80km north of Buenos Aires, and will be constructed in two distinct phases. The first will see the construction of a 3.1km track and all supporting infrastructure, capable of hosting national race events with crowds of up to 30,000. Phase two will then develop the site fully with the view to becoming home to the Argentinian F1 Grand Prix.
