Club Automovilistico de Nicaragua (‘CAN’), secured grant funding via the FIA Institute for Motor Sport Safety to develop a master plan and to establish a commercially and environmentally sustainable case for a new motorsport facility in Nicaragua.

The proposed development will provide the nation with a new 2.5km circuit designed to FIA International Grade 3 standard that will contain integrated link sections to allow for kart racing up to World Championship. The kart circuit is aimed at obtaining CIK-FIA Category A homologation.

In addition, a 1/8th mile drag strip has been included in the master plan, as part of a national campaign to help reduce accident rates on public roads due to illegal racing.

A short motocross track for club level racing is also proposed, allowing not only enthusiasts to start in the sport but also experienced riders to hone their skills.

A road safety centre is also included to utilise the paddock infrastructure, comprising of a ‘kick plate test’ and a ‘legoland’ type mini-road network for kids.

Away from the track, the development has been planned to include commercial properties to contribute capital towards the motorsport construction costs including a hotel, clubhouse, apartments and a marina. Fund raising for this project is underway with significant support from CAN and the government of Nicaragua, though a date for construction has yet to be set.
