Danrick Builders of Chandler is developing a 2,360-acre recreational motorsports destination in Pinal County.
The project, Attesa, is expected to draw fans globally to the region and boost the area's economy. It will also offer educational partnerships with universities conducting automotive research and development.
Attesa will have two 2.8-mile road courses, a go-kart track and a multisurface racing and event area. A private airport with a 6,000-foot-long runway will offer access to patrons flying in for events.
“Attesa will be an optimal racing entertainment destination that will draw guests from all over the world, driving new jobs and contributing taxes to local economies,” Dan Erickson, principal of Danrick Builders, said. “Our model is incomparable to any other development in the United States. We’ll combine speed, luxury experiences and motorsports opportunities for individuals from all walks of life.”
Designed by renowned London-based racetrack engineering firm Apex Circuit Design, Attesa’s two full-size racetracks will meet international FIA and FIM certifications. Major car and motorcycle racing events will be able to use Attesa.
“Arizona already has the West’s best NASCAR track,” Erickson said, referring to Phoenix International Raceway in Avondale. “By adding Attesa, Arizona will become an international racing destination.”
The project represents an amazing opportunity for the city, county and state, Richard Wilkie, Casa Grande economic development manager, said.
"It’s so much more than a racetrack; it’s a diversified project," Wilkie said. “It will make the area a destination for recreation, industry and high-paying jobs. Attesa is a catalyst for development in the corridor.”
