Arizona Motorsports Park Set For March Opening
From a press release issued by Wilson Motorsport, Inc.:
FIRST LAPS AT ARIZONA MOTORSPORTS PARK
Gary Stiles, a senior instructor at the Team Arizona Motorcycle School became the first rider to test the brand new 2.227 mile Arizona Motorsports Park race track in Phoenix on Friday, January 3, when he helped track designer Alan Wilson determine curb, corner posts and safety system locations for the new facility.
The new track, whose final race surface was completed on Sunday is located adjacent to the Luke Airforce Base on Camelback Road in Maricopa County, approximately twenty minutes ride from Phoenix's Skyharbor International Airport. The 40ft wide course, which incorporates two independent 1.11 mile sub-tracks into one 16 turn championship course has little elevation change but features several extremely technical and challenging corner sequences. Extensive safety zones and a minimum of barriers provide for wide open and very smoothly graded run-off areas.
Arizona Motorsports Park is expected to host several motorcycle race weekends each season and will be the new home for the Arizona Motorcycle School who will be able to use three circuit configurations and the 15 acre asphalt driving pad to conduct their multiple training programs.
The AMP facility is in easy reach of the Southern California market area and offers a brand new racing opportunity for the nations most competitive racers.
