The Teuteborg Forest in central Germany has been in the spotlight recently, after it was revealed that a new, intriguing project was about to commence. An 80 hectare site inside the forest, which was once a NATO ammunition depot, has been disused for almost twenty years but is now ready to be transformed into a major resort.
The resort will be called Bilster Berg luxury ‘drive resort’, which will include a new automobile testing centre. The racing track has been designed by Hermann Tike, who was also responsible for strategy behind the Formula One circuits in Shanghai and Istanbul.
It is expected to provide a superb experience for racers and spectators alike and will also benefit from the expertise of technical consultant Walter Röhrl, who is a rally champion and test driver for Porsche.
The 2.67 mile track splits into eastern and western loops and has been chiefly designed to host a world-class facility that will rival the likes of Spa-Francorchamp and Nurburgring. The site will also include a number of clubhouses and other service buildings, which will house various events and private functions.
Private and exclusive membership opportunities and corporate events will form an integral part of this business plan; however, the site will primarily operate as a testing and presentation centre for Europe’s auto manufacturers, which will benefit from the location’s secluded setting.
The first stage of the construction is already in progress and all of the relevant permissions have been acquired. Bilster Berg is already open for bookings from July 2012 and shares are available in multiples of $134,000 or €100,000.
