It’s no secret that Andhra Pradesh government aims to promote motorsports in the state. In fact, the South Indian state is sponsoring Swiss Moto2 team CGBM Evolution for the 2018 season. Now, there are more reason to rejoice for motorsport fans as the state will get a new race track very soon. The new racetrack will come up in Kotapalli village, of the Ananthapuramu district in Andhra Pradesh.
The new racetrack is promoted by Nidhi Marque One Motors. Speaking to Autocar India, Anush Chakravarthi, Director, Nidhi Marque One Motors, said “We are extremely grateful for the support from the Andhra Pradesh Government and the Chief Minister.”
The upcoming racetrack will be FIA Grade 3 which means that the circuit will not host Formula 1 races. It’s set in a rolling countryside which may result in an interesting track design with elevation changes. Our own Laguna Seca? Yes, please!
The project will be executed in three phases. The first phase, which will take about 18 months to complete, will see the construction of the 3.3 km racetrack along with a 40-room, 3-star resort. The second and third phases will add a 5-hole golf course, a sports complex and an automotive-themed amusement park. The project is expected to be completed in 90 months. Apart from the racetrack, the facility is also expected to get a drag strip and an off-road course with a rock-crawl driving area.
