Today we’d like to introduce you to Jason Plotke.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Apex Motor Club is a motorsports country club, similar to a golf country club, but for motorsports enthusiasts. We did not invent the concept, as they exist in markets such as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, New York and Miami, but we located Apex the closer than any other club to a major metropolitan area, and in a market with over 300 days of sunshine and year-round use.
Phoenix is an automotive enthused market with 2 NASCAR races, Barrett-Jackson week, and some of the best car culture in the nation, but is underserved from a motorsports perspective creating an opportunity for a club of this kind.
Apex Motor Club officially opened April 2019 with its world-class 2.27 mile multi-configurable racing circuit and are embarking on construction of our 48 Phase 1 private garage condominiums. We also recently opened our event center which allows one to get out of the elements and enjoy some hospitality.
Another 2.25 mile racing circuit and 48 additional garages, along with a first-class clubhouse are slated for Phase 2.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Many struggles with any project of this magnitude, but this one in particular. First off, racing tracks are not easy to build anywhere. Finding land that is within our desired distance from the population, but within a budget that makes economical sense always a challenge. Secondly, we were challenged by a potential competitor, which caused many delays, but we ultimately prevailed on, however it slowed our progress and wasted resources.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Apex Motor Club – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We are a very unique club, unlike golf in our market where there are 300 plus courses in our MSA, there will likely only be one motorsports club and we attract a very unique set of members. Our members ultimately make the club and come from all backgrounds, but are typically passionate aficionados that enjoy the intense challenge of motor racing.
We are the only motorsports country club in metro-Phoenix and are known for our proximity to where our members live, a world-class racing circuit and a club atmosphere that is hard to duplicate elsewhere.
We are most proud of our members. Our diverse group of automotive enthusiasts provides an element that stands alone from most other clubs of any kind in this market.
Our high touch, attention to detail, priority on safety, and seasoned and experienced staff separate us from other clubs of our kind.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
We are looking forward to our Phase 2 construction, consisting of an additional 48 garages, 2.25-mile racing circuit and legendary clubhouse.
