Race Track Case Study:
Palm Beach International Raceway

Situation: Complete redevelopment of the road course at the facility formerly known as Moroso Motorsports Park.

Our Role: MCS was tasked with a complete design review. Our analysis determined improvements that would enhance the quality and marketability of the facility and worked closely with the developer and their contractors on the redesign, simulation and the safety system design and placement.

Palm Beach International Raceway has become a prototypical multi use facility and has garnered positive feedback from such drivers as Kyle Petty, Darren Manning, Lawson Aschenbach.

“It’s billiard table smooth, it’s a nice layout,” said Manning, a veteran of IndyCar Series competition. “It’s got good combinations of corners, a nice chicane you brake through, a lot of long corners, and a nice long straight to work on your straight-line speed… It’s nice, and it’s good not to get thrown around by the bumps all the time.”

“It looks great, and they’ve done a great job with the racetrack,” said Grand-Am driver Lawson Aschenbach, who now resides in West Palm Beach. “It’s a very nice, classy environment, and hopefully, people will get excited about it. “This is absolutely a great place for spectator races,” Aschenbach added. “With Miami and Orlando within driving distance, it’s got a great base of fans, and the Palm Beach area is great for drivers. This town really knows who’s who and what’s what.”
