TORONTO, October 13, 2021 – Today, Policaro Group, a leading premium dealer group in Southern Ontario, announced a new partnership with Oro Station, Canada’s home for automotive enthusiasts, racers and innovators. The Group will build a two-storey clubhouse at Oro Station Motor Circuit which will serve as Policaro Motorsport headquarters to host racing customers and support the Group’s professional racing team.
Oro Station, an Automotive Innovation Park located in Oro-Medonte, Ontario is slated to open to the public in 2023. The Park will feature 500,000 square feet of industrial space dedicated to automotive research, engineering, education, and development, including a 4.1km motor circuit with dynamic driving areas. Oro Station is strategically located next to the expanding Lake Simcoe Regional Airport, providing new synergies and opportunities for maximized and efficient connectivity and business development.
“We can’t wait to share the thrill of racing with clients and motorsport enthusiasts across the province,” said Francesco Policaro, dealer principal and CEO, Policaro Group. “The clubhouse will be our professional motorsport destination. From full performance services to watching our brands full-throttle on the track, it will demonstrate the heart of the Policaro Group.”
Through this partnership, Policaro Group will develop a two-storey clubhouse featuring a multi-car paddock with an inspection and maintenance area. The clubhouse will also feature a guest and hospitality area with a balcony overlooking Oro Station Motor Circuit.
“We are pleased to announce this partnership with Policaro Group and welcome Policaro Motorsport to Oro Station,” said Geoffrey Campbell, Founder and Managing Partner of Oro Station. “We’re excited to grow motorsports in Canada with the support of partners and showcase Canadian talent like Policaro Motorsport on our Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) approved motor circuit.”
The Policaro Group’s involvement in motorsport runs the gamut from beginner track experiences to supporting its professional racing team. At the clubhouse, the Group will offer client motorsport experiences including rentals, arrive and drive, coaching and simulator training.
With victories at the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona, Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge, Porsche Esprint Challenge Canada and Canadian Touring Car Championships, Policaro Group’s competitive driving team looks to continue to make its mark on the North American racing scene at its new home at Oro Station.
