HONOLULU, Hawaii — Plans have been revealed to build a new motorsports facility on the island of Oahu in Hawaii.

Michael Kitchens, CEO of BTT, LLC, has announced his  vision for the future of motorsports on Oahu – Circuit Hawaii. Kitchens is envisioning an FIA Grade 3 complex capable of supporting a wide variety of racing events, to include drag racing, road racing, drifting, karting, dirt racing and more.

In addition, several club membership packages will be offered by the Hawaii Driver’s Club for everyone from the enthusiasts looking for perks and privileges to those just looking to enjoy the thrill behind the wheel of an exotic sports car.

Also involved in the project is Ben Willshire from UK-based motorsports consultants Driven International, Ltd., with Coffman Engineers and HHF Planners also in support. Yoshi Development New York is responsible for architectural design.

Circuit Hawaii is being designed and developed by Driven. Driven is an award winning, RIBA chartered architectural, design and consultancy firm, with particular expertise in resort-based motorsport and driving venues.

The complex is expected to consist of an eighth-mile drag strip, a 1.5-mile licensed FIA road course and a quarter-mile dirt track. The facility is also expected to include a clubhouse, race control, pits, garages and event space.

The Circuit Hawaii complex will be located in the most appropriate area on Oahu for MotorSports –in Campbell Industrial Park directly to the west of Kalaeloa Airport and within a short six-mile drive to the Ko Olina vacation resort.

Circuit Hawaii is currently offering an initial Founding Membership package while it gathers further investment. The project is conservatively expected to be completed in three years, by 2022.
