High Rock Raceway – North Carolina gets a road racing track

Between Charlotte and Greensboro, off of I-85 in western North Carolina a new road racing track is being born.  It has been designed by no less than Elliot Forbes-Robinson and will be a 2.15 mile long road course that will host events starting in 2009.  This 14 turn, course is designed for all types of racing from motorcycles, to sports cars, as well as NASCAR. 

This will also be the nations first “green” race track with an emphasis on recycling and re-purpose construction debris, gaining approval from the local government on sediment and erosion control during construction.  The facility will also include commercial and residential buildings that will meet “North Carolina HealthyBuilt Homes” guidelines. 

As well as hosting races from many sanctioning bodies (FIA, FIM, AMA, SCCA, NASA), this will be a premier test track for NASCAR racing teams.

Use of the track will be made free to companies and researchers developing alternative fuels and vehicles.

This will be a very busy race track.
