US F1 Team Picks European Base
US F1 Team announced today that MotorLand Aragon, an 865-acre motorsports complex located in the Spanish town of Alcaniz, has been selected as the team’s European base. MotorLand will serve as the team’s European testing, race-car development and logistics headquarters.
“MotorLand Aragon is the ideal motorsports complex for US F1’s European operation,” said Peter Windsor, executive vice president and sporting director for US F1 Team. “From the excellent location and weather, to the rich racing heritage and diverse track configurations, MotorLand provides America’s first Formula One team in more than 40 years with the perfect facility to manage the 2010 season and train for 2011 and beyond.”
MotorLand is a motorsports complex consisting of three international standard tracks, a technology park (TechnoPark MotorLand) and a world-class leisure and cultural area.
US F1 will be housed in a 20,000-square foot facility at MotorLand, with major departments having a presence in everything from testing and race-car development to logistics and communications. MotorLand, which is serving as the alternate race location for the 2010 MotoGP series, will also serve as US F1 Team’s hub and service shop in between Formula One races.
