Private luxury motorsports club in central Florida marries resort-style living with an outstanding racetrack experience
AUBURNDALE, Fla. (July 27, 2023) – Circuit Florida, a membership-based private motorsports club and car enthusiast community featuring both residential living and a world-class road course, has finalized plans and renderings for its flagship three-story member clubhouse and event center building. The club expects to break ground on this final piece of the master site plan by March of 2024. Circuit Florida is set to open this December, marking the full completion of the track and the inauguration of the first club building, which is currently open for visitors.
Circuit Florida’s vision is to seamlessly blend the luxuries of resort-style living and premium amenities with an unparalleled private club track experience tailored to both motorsport enthusiasts and corporate clientele alike. The 18,000-square-foot, three-story member clubhouse and event center building is a testament to the luxury and functionality that Circuit Florida is committed to delivering to its members.
“We’ve developed Circuit Florida as a motorsports oasis for those looking to purchase a second home within a resort-style car enthusiast community and for corporate clientele,” said Paul Scarpello, Circuit Florida’s developer. “This is not just a racetrack with a place to stay onsite, but a carefully designed and curated experience geared toward the needs and desires of car enthusiasts with the member clubhouse and event center playing a pivotal role in that.”
A grand reception/atrium area will greet guests upon entering, and adjacent to the track, a large training room awaits, complete with an outside deck offering stunning track views. The member clubhouse’s first floor will also feature a well-equipped gym, sauna, showers and secure lockers. Those seeking relaxation can bask in the sun by the outdoor pool and deck or unwind in the jacuzzi.
The second floor will offer an unparalleled experience for members. A member lounge and restaurant boasting elevated views over the track will provide the perfect setting for socializing and dining. A cantilever viewing deck will extend over the pit lane, offering a front-row seat to the on-track action. An activity room brimming with billiards, foosball, darts and other recreational options promises hours of enjoyment, along with a cigar room catering to refined tastes.
The third floor will house additional conference and training rooms, all with a view and thoughtfully designed to accommodate various needs. These versatile spaces will be ideal for hosting conferences, workshops and training sessions. This space also intends to attract corporate users to host manufacturer events, driving schools and media events. Additionally, the Circuit Florida offices are stationed here, ensuring seamless management and coordination of all operations.
The track waits just beyond the member clubhouse and event center building. The 1.7-mile driving circuit offers an exhilarating experience, featuring elevation changes, 14 dynamic turns and an impressive total of four straights with speeds exceeding 100 mph. The longest 1,800-foot straightaway will thrill even the most seasoned drivers, propelling a Porsche GT3 to over 150 mph. The track’s grading and storm drainage work continues, with the final surfacing already scheduled with the paving contractor for late October.
Adding to the track’s prestige is renowned track designer and motorsport consultant Bob Barnard, responsible for the design and engineering of the track. With a 35-year professional career, Barnard’s name is synonymous with tracks such as Road Atlanta, Phillip Island and the iconic Daytona International Speedway, among many others worldwide.
There will be 75 luxury two-story townhome-style condo units offering living spaces ranging from 863 to 2,837 square feet with climate-controlled, high-ceiling garage space accommodating up to six cars on the standard polished concrete floor. Prices start from $475K for a Monza studio unit with a one-car garage to the pinnacle of opulence with the Le Mans units. Priced at just under $1.8M, the Le Mans unit boasts two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a spacious balcony perfect for entertaining guests, a six-car garage and elevated track views. Additionally, there will be 15 units available as part of the Circuit Florida rental program for personal or corporate use.
