Moroso Motorsports Park Delays Construction

Jupiter, FL (April 26, 2007) Moroso Motorsports Park has delayed construction on the Road Course and Drag Strip scheduled for June of this year. Consequently, both tracks will be open for business as usual. Owner and CEO, Susan Moroso Strecker said, "The good news is, our customers won't have to endure a summer without racing. We see these four months (June through September) that we were supposed to be shut down as an opportunity to introduce new programs that we've not had the time for in the past. Rest assured, our tracks will get repaved and revamped. It just won't be this year." Included in the new summer schedule will be the Moroso Road Racing Money Series, a Sport Compact Challenge Bracket Race Series and a once-monthly drag race solely for motorcycles and quads. The schedule picks up in August with the second of the Hot Rod Sunday events, followed by the Ford Power Festival and the much-anticipated return of Super Chevy in October.

Motocross will be open for their regularly scheduled practices, races and special events. Moroso recently held the inaugural race of the Motorsports of Delray Florida Motorcross Championship Series. Additional races will be held once a month through October with the season concluding on October 21st with a double-points race culminating with the crowning of Florida's best motocrossers.

Karting continues to flourish on the 9/10th mile, 13 turn, asphalt kart track; sanctioned as a Master Track under the World Karting Association. Florida's Premier Karting series, The Jon Smith Subs Kart Race Series, continues once a month with the grand finale on Sunday, October 21st. TAG USA certifications are now in effect and allow winners to enter the nationals every year.

RallyCross is one of the newer additions to the multi-use facility. Based on European Rally, it provides an opportunity for South Floridians to play in the dirt. The course is approximately a two-minute run and consists of six corners on hard dirt, sand, and grass. In addition, the course was designed with input from South Florida SCCA RallyCross drivers with beginners in mind so there is plenty of run-off but still technical enough for the seasoned RallyCrosser to test their skills. For only $45 a day there is not a better and more affordable way to learn to slide your car. This is also great training for aspiring drifters.

With the support and knowledge from Action R/C, Moroso is constructing a purpose-built remote control track for off-road trucks and buggies. The course features varied terrains, 14 corners, and several jumps including a large double jump. Additionally, the course will have a raised and shaded control stand as well as several bleachers.
