This is the new, hopefully F1, destination here in the Yucatan of Mexico. Only a few miles from the beach, this track is already taking shape. 

I heard about this from a friend of mine who lives in the area over a year ago. I just did not believe what I was hearing and so had blown it off. But then on Facebook I see a post from another friend with pics from the site. It is a reality! How awesome is this, to bring top notch road racing to the Yucatan of Mexico. F1, I hear that could be a possibility in the future. Indy car, motorcycle road racing, wow, who would not want to come to beautiful space. Merida Mexico and the beaches region of the Yucatan is most awesome, safe and full of culture and life. You gotta get here to see it for yourself. Come on over and say howdy!
