The MotorLand Aragon project (Ciudad del Motor de Aragon) grew out of the legendary Alcaniz street circuit and the enthusiasm this event sparked locally and nationally.
The desire to continue this long-standing tradition gave rise to the idea of building a new motorsports city – hence the Spanish name that translates into Motor City of Aragon. MotorLand Aragón is now taking shape as a multi-purpose motorsports complex based around technology, sports and leisure & culture.
Tome Alfonso, Motorland Aragon’s MD, told Discovery Media Group: “We definitely expect to continue this successful tradition and this was the main reason why the local government of Aragon was very supportive of the circuit’s ambitions. This area of Spain has had a strong racing tradition since 1965 and this was the ‘engine’ that persuaded the local government to invest in the area as well as encourage private investment in hotels and world-class facilities.”
The circuit has collaborated with a team of internationally renowned experts to transform this concept into a reality. The ultimate aim of this project is to improve the region’s economy by creating a destination resort to attract investment and support from motor racing teams, car companies as well as the general public.
Senor Alfonso said: “The local government wanted to create a working group of the very highest quality. They wanted the best people involved, and as you can see, we have one of the world’s most experienced drivers (Pedro de la Rosa) as well as a world-class architect (Fosters + Partners) and circuit designer (Herman Tilke). What more could you want? This created the perfect scenario for our plans at MotorLand. It was imperative that we achieved the very best results in order to achieve the same high standards found at Barcelona and Valencia, for instance. I am very pleased with the working group and their involvement with this project.
