This past Tuesday morning, Prairie Hills Motorsport Club partners received more good news in realizing a dream come true. At the meeting of Newton County Commissioners, support for the project by the Planning and Zoning Board was granted so the group could go forward with further development of plans. Prairie Hills Motorsport Club CEO Michael Krupka had prepared additional information to show refined plans for sound, traffic, and other issues of the 872 acre property near Lake Village, Indiana.

"We are addressing all issues to the satisfaction of the Board," explained Mr. Krupka. "And we are in the process of resolving any potential problems that might arise in the future. We look forward to working with the special advisory board on an ongoing basis to make sure this project is a win-win for everybody concerned," Krupka added.

Both Prairie Hills Motorsport Club and the local community will benefit significantly by the new venture. When the facility opens, the organization will employ 57 full-time staff members and 61 part-time workers. The new business will also provide additional tax revenue, training, and other benefits for the citizens of the area. In addition, the club infrastructure was designed so as not to require resources from the county. One example is the self-contained waste treatment plant to be installed on the premises.

Prairie Hills Motorsport Club will provide a unique lifestyle experience for automotive enthusiasts. Primary members of the club will be professionals who are active in motorsports and who have a great passion for driving or racing cars at a safe and exclusive facility. The racing track will be the longest in the Western Hemisphere and will be designed to be utilized in over 3,600 configurations. The club will provide fine and casual dining, vehicle storage, a clubhouse, spa, gym, game room for children, and retail shopping for members and guests. Trackside buildings will house corporate facilities, race team garages, and locker rooms. Business plans also include corporate programs, team building, and banquet and convention services.

Ladies and gentlemen, start your bulldozers. With Prairie Hills Motorsport Club activities increasing, a ground-breaking is expected as early as this fall.

"Our goal is to have the track completed by fall of 2008," said Mr. Krupka. "The club should be in full operation by spring of 2009." The clubhouse is scheduled to be open for private previews and community events in March of that year. And a Grand Opening has been proposed for the first Saturday in April.

Prairie Hills Motorsport Club will be located off interstate I-65 west of Exit 220 between Indianapolis and Chicago. The club will be convenient for those automotive enthusiasts in Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and surrounding areas. Memberships are now available at a pre-construction initiation fee for those who sign up early.
