MARICOPA — One of the top motorsports teams in the United States will soon call Maricopa its home.
Flying Lizard Motorsports, which has competed in such competitions as the American Le Mans and 24 Hours of Dayton, has been working with Apex Motor Club to move their operations to Maricopa by next fall.
According to a Flying Lizard press release, they’ve decided to start moving their central operations next fall to a “brand-new facility” at Apex.
This “10-time sports car racing champions” company has headquartered for the past two decades at Sonoma Raceway in the southern Sonoma Mountains of California.
“Sonoma has been an amazing home for us, but as our team continues to grow, our organization needs a central headquarters with room to grow, and the Apex facility perfectly fits the bill,” Program Manager Darren Law said. “Apex is really an ideal location for us because both myself and one of my business partners, Tommy Sadler, live locally. The racing community in the area is larger than one would expect, and it is rare that a race facility is in a location such as this.”
