Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania -- The track has been cleared and Alpine Motorsports Club is speeding ahead at full throttle to attract Founding Members for the only private motorsports club on the East Coast where you can drive your car on your personal schedule on its four-mile, European-inspired, Alan Wilson-designed mountain road course.
Alpine Motorsports Club developer Richard Muller said he expects ground to be broken before next spring at the 360-acre site in the shadows of the Blue Mountains in Eldred Township, Monroe County, only 75 miles west of New York City and 75 miles northwest of Philadelphia.
"It took us more than three years to fulfill our obligations and commitments to the community and the environment," Muller aid. "We're now ready to show this naturally beautiful country site to all motorcar enthusiasts who are looking for a safe, versatile four-mile road course to experience the ultimate excitement of driving their cars."
The private club not only caters to drivers, but also to their families and guests. The Clubhouse features entertainment, training facilities, dining and a swimming pool. Other facilities at Alpine Motorsports Club are storage garages, pro shop, self-service fueling, car wash, state-of-the-art control tower, recreational fields and trails, and concours grounds for car shows and special hospitality events.
The primary road course features 14 turns, while the total layout has nine versatile configurations, a 40-ft. wide road that is wider than a three-lane interstate, no visual or physical obstructions, 220 ft. of elevation changes constructed on three distinct plateaus (a throwback to European courses), and safety aspects based on F1 specifications.
"This facility is a car enthusiasts dream," said Kimberly Carrodo-Bowers, Director of Sales and Marketing. "It's a golf club without golf, just bring your Porsche, Ferrari, Corvette, Mustang, Lamborghini or other high-performance motorcar and drive it when you want to experience the exhilaration of speed. After driving, relax with your family and friends in the Clubhouse."
"Most owners don't know where they can take their cars for a high-performance drive other than the highway," said Bill Gilbert, of Warren, NJ, who is an Alpine member and former President of the Northern New Jersey Region of the Porsche Club of America. "Alpine will be all about driving, not racing. Drivers will enjoy the handling and performance of their car on a safe European-inspired road course."
