Subject: New Owners and Management
We are very pleased to announce that the Cherry Valley Motorsports Park is in the process of changing ownership. The facility will be owned and operated by the LaFayette Motorsports Park, LLC. New President & CEO, Tony Goddard commented "we are all very excited about taking over the operation of the facility and look forward to reinvigorating the track and making a number of significant improvements to both the track and facilities".
The Cherry Valley Motorsports Park has a long history in LaFayette, NY and has hosted a number of large events in its past history as well as running regular club events for a loyal following. Goddard further stated that "we have a number of exciting plans for the facility including resurfacing the track in the spring of 2018 in order to be ready for the 2018 season". LaFayette Motorsports Park, LLC. have more immediate plans to install a MyLaps X2 computerized timing and scoring system, new kart approved interlocked barrier system in place of the aging Styrofoam as well as replace and upgrade safety fencing.
A number of other improvements are slated to take place soon after the track is back in operation. LaFayette Motorsports, LLC. are working hard to close the deal so they can once more be operational as soon as possible. The closing is anticipated to take place prior to the Memorial Day weekend with the first scheduled summer club race to take place on June 4th, 2018. If the closing can be moved up sooner, an additional fill-in race and/or practice sessions will be scheduled.
