Racing and car enthusiasts rejoice: there’s a new exclusive club in California, and it’s everything a gearhead can dream of. The Thermal Club is a private, all-inclusive motorsports club with a 5.1-mile race track — the largest private track in the state — which won the Motorsports Facility of the Year Award in 2017 before construction was even completed. The track itself was designed by the famed track designer Alan Wilson, who has built more than 20 race courses around the world, with the help of Roger Penske, who developed a special asphalt just for this track. Former pro-racer Dominic Cicero is also part of the team as the lead racing instructor for the facility.
Aside from the world-class track, the Thermal Club also offers a range of luxury residences and amenities. 268 housing plots surround the track, with 68 already sold. Members of the club can either choose from a curated selection of floor plans or completely design their own custom residence. Of course, it wouldn’t be a car enthusiast’s dream home without a garage — each residence comes with a garage that can hold up to 20 vehicles. Some villas are also available trackside, overlooking a two-story sound barrier to a panoramic view of the race course.
Finally, housed in the center of the establishment is the Club’s Motorsports Village, a clubhouse for guests to relax, socialize and dine. The Village boasts a full-service tuning garage as well as an onsite fueling facility, a trackside storage garage, and a team to help members source and purchase rare racers. For those with less racing experience, on-site instructors are also available, giving advice and feedback using lap data and captured footage.
