USF1 Moves to MotorLand Aragon as European Base


What Happens When “Made in America” is Well and Good, But Europe Is Nice, Too

9:59am EST — USF1 announced Friday that, while their home base is in Charlotte, NC, the team’s European base for the 2010 season will be MotorLand Aragon in Alcaniz, Spain.  The 865-acre complex will serve as the team’s European testing, development, and logistics headquarters.  Team executive vice president and sporting director Peter Windsor said in the team’s press release that, “MotorLand Aragon is the ideal motorsports complex for USF1’s European operation.  From the excellent location and weather, to the rich racing heritage and diverse track configurations, MotorLand provides America’s first Formula1 team in more than 40 years with the perfect facility to manage the 2010 season and train for 2011 and beyond.”

USF1 will be in a 20,000 square-foot space at the circuit, which has three international standard tracks, one of which is a Hermann Tilke-designed road course that is for both Formula1 and MotoGP, and is an alternate location for the 2010 MotoGP Spanish GP.  “Between the Formula One-inspired, Tilke-designed road course and accompanying circuits, as well as the elaborate amenities of the leisure and cultural area, MotorLand is truly the perfect complex for USF1, from both competitive and business perspectives,” said Ken Anderson, team principal, president and CEO.
