Velociudad on its way…

Together with the renowned company Populous, responsible for the Silverstone redevelopment and the Dubai Race track, Velociudad started the first stage of construction on their 62 hectare site located in Zárate.

The initial stage that shall be finished between August and November 2012 will include a 2100 meter track together with the Club House, an off-road park and an exclusive brand house.

The facility will initially hold Track Test drives and exclusive events for its members. Moreover, Phase 1 will also accommodate auto manufacturers and their respective driving experience programs.

One of phase one's most relevant attractions will be the off-road park, designed with hazardous conditions, to simulate driving on mountains, through mud or on rocky terrain. It shall be dynamic and safe, especially suitable for SUVs to ATVs.

Besides, the brand house will provide a private space with its own entry and direct track access. Design and styling will be customized according to each owner´s brand image. It'll be an unbeatable sales environment. Several automotives have shown interest in securing their exclusive space.

Regarding the Club House, it'll become an ideal place for private events. There will be an exclusive lounge and bar service for "Velociudad Club" members to relax, socialize and share their passion for speed. Located in center of the circuit, it will provide a magnificent space to watch the racing events.

The prospective international circuit will be 4700 meters long and hold 17 curves. After submitting it to a Formula 1 simulator, Populous revealed the circuit's lap time is 1:32 and maximum speed will be 270 km per hour.

With these facilities, Velociudad consolidates two very important aspects of its institutional development.
