Westel, TN. (October 26, 2022) – A groundbreaking ceremony was held today celebrating the construction of Flatrock Motorsports Park and Motorclub, Tennessee’s world class motorsports and entertainment destination. Located on a 773-acre tract less than a day’s drive from 75% of the US population, the first phases of the park are under construction now and scheduled to open in the spring of 2023.
Flatrock Motorsports Park, with tracks designed by world renowned Tilke Engineers & Architects, will feature a 3.50-mile private Member’s Club track and a 2.67-mile Grand Prix track. Combined, the full circuit is almost 6 miles of challenging and unique driving, taking advantage of the natural topography and views.
“A Tennessee Motorsports Park is a legacy project for me and I am excited, along with our partners, to bring it to Cumberland County, Tennessee,” said Rusty Bittle, developer and Founding Partner of Flatrock Motorsports Park.
Flatrock’s Motorclub members will enjoy a state of the art paddock, luxurious clubhouse with restaurant, lounge, and day spa, premium garages with rooftop viewing, track side villas, a multipurpose pit building with race control, meeting spaces, and more. Along with the Motorclub track and campus, Flatrock plans to open a CIK Karting Track in the spring of 2023.
Future phases of the park include the Grand Prix track, a landmark hotel and destination restaurant, campgrounds, brewery, winery, additional lodging, a retail center and a natural amphitheater, using Crab Orchard stone, that will play host to major motor sporting races, live concerts and special events throughout the year.
The Cumberland plateau landscape with its natural and rolling elevations cradle the course design and create 34 dynamic turns for racing enthusiasts. “Visitors from around the world come to Tennessee for our unmatched scenic beauty and adventure. Flatrock Motorsports Park is the perfect combination for this entirely new, world-class driving experience,” said Commissioner Mark Ezell, Tennessee Department of Tourist Development. “This development is sure to become a premier motorsports destination and an important economic driver for Cumberland County and the entire region.”
