Similar to the Monticello (N.Y.) Motor Club that opened last summer near New York City, the Imola Race Resort & Waterford Golf and River Estate, located in South Africa, will offer well-heeled South Africans a place to play with their expensive sportscars without fear of consequence.
Replicating the layout of the vaunted Kyalami circuit that once was home to the South African Grand Prix, the track at Imola (which takes its name from another Grand Prix circuit in Italy) does away with unyielding safety barriers and replaces them with vast fields for run-off areas—for those times when wealth exceeds driving skills.
And, according to The Luxist, to help exchange the former for the latter, there will also be an advanced driving school on site, along with luxurious facilities for both car and driver.
Situated on the grounds of the Waterford Golf & River Estate, membership at the Imola Race Resort will be limited to prevent overcrowding, and will undoubtedly command a high premium to join.
