Philippines Grand Prix facility revealed by Tilke associates

Our intrepid colleagues at RaceFans disturbed the leisurely Rolex 24 at Daytona wake up call here in Germany by pointing us to the Pradera Verde project which happens to include a Formula 1  race track facility penned by Hermann Tilke and his Manila-based associates SpaceFabrik.

The project was made public last week, with Tilke presenting the concept and venue structure in the wake of Formula 1 registering trademarks for the Philippines Grand Prix and/or the Manila Grand Prix.

SpaceFabrik, an Architecture and Design firm appear to have the nod to conceptualise a purpose-built venue for a Grand Prix race and a myriad of track variations for various racing categories and disciplines.

They report on their website: “The proposed racing circuit will be located within a larger project called Pradera Verde, a 400-hectare development in the town of Lubao in the province of Pampanga, which is located 100km from the Metro Manila, the Philippine capital.”

“Pradera Verde is envisioned to become a world-class integrated resort with a 36-hole golf course (opened in August, 2014), residential subdivision lots with fairway views, a natural swimming park and a 16-hectare Wakeboarding Park Resort, currently the biggest body of water dedicated to wakeboarding in Southeast Asia (opened in March, 2014).”

“The project has 100 hectares allocated for a racing circuit. The client’s goal is to have a premier racing destination in Southeast Asia. The Philippines currently has only two racing circuits that are operating and have only held Formula 4 as their highest rated FiA event.”

“One of the aims is to have at least FIA Grade 2 circuit with a length of 5 kilometres and a host of support and commercial facilities to make it attractive to motor sports enthusiasts.”

“This project is currently in collaboration with Tilke – Engineers & Architects”
