Two years after Walt Disney World shuttered its racetrack, a new plan is coming together for a new Orlando Motorsports Park and driving experience in Osceola County.
Miami racing instructor and businessman Andy Bardar is now seeking a noise variance for the attraction, which is planned on 217 vacant acres at the southwest corner of U.S. 192 and State Road 429. That’s just a few miles west of Disney World and across 429 from the under-construction Margaritaville developments.
Bardar already owns a driving experience at Homestead-Miami Speedway – The HPDE (High Performance Driving Experience).
Details on the Orlando Motorsports Park project are still being kept quiet. However it’s likely that three courses are planned. There would be a private club course for members and professionals alongside one geared to the general public. A cart course is also likely. The courses are being designed by German engineers and architects Tilke who specialise in race tracks.
There would be a members-only area to include indoor vehicle storage and vehicle maintenance. A clubhouse and lodging units for members are also on the cards.
