Travis Pastrana planning to open his own motorsports park

Motorcycle stunt legend Travis Pastrana is looking set to build a motorsports park in Maryland USA

MOTORCYCLE racer and stunt rider Travis Pastrana is planning to build his own motorsports park in his home state of Maryland.

Circuit 199, as the venue is going to be called, is claimed to be a state of the art facility, encompassing a motorsports facility and entertainment venue in one place. The site is planned to accommodate everyone, from total novices to top-flight athletes, and will cover a plethora of two and four-wheeled disciplines.

It’s hoped the venue will be hosting Supermoto events and training, flat-track racing and training, and also helping to increase the uptake of electric vehicles in the racing community. As you’d expect from a facility from the mind of one of the world’s most famous freestyle MX riders, motorcycles flying through the air at breath-taking altitudes will feature heavily at Circuit 199.

Aside from the powered action sports, the venue will also host a range of other activities including skateboarding and scooters.

“Our goal is to be a positive outlet in the community,” said Travis Pastrana on Circuit 199. “We want to build a facility that promotes fitness, camaraderie, and provides entertainment as well as economic growth for our community. We want to open our doors for local charity events whenever possible and we want to give people access to top driver and rider coaches who can help coach and mentor everyone from beginners through the most elite. I want to spend time with my family, outside and active, doing what we all love, together. That’s why I chose Maryland. This is our home.”

More information including development timeline, site layout and more will be made available soon. Stay up to date by heading to Circuit199.com
