Since 2004, Marc Leibowitz and RJ Valentine have been working to develop 12.5 acres of land in Calverton, NY, as the best karting facility in North America. The location is ideal – just 72 miles from New York City, in a densely populated area of high income households, within 150 miles of 40+ million people. The land itself will hold two challenging multi-elevation, multi-use race tracks that will serve both novice and experienced drivers. Running as a private club for 10 years, we now have the necessary permits to build a world-class participatory motorsports complex. And because of the nature of real estate development in the region, this is likely to be the LAST motorsports track on Long Island. We are now prepared to sell the property, the site plans and elevations, and the permits to a serious track developer or karting professional.

A brief history of
Moto 1 Long Island
Nestled in the fishtail of Long Island, the Moto 1 Long Island Club’s twelve acres of trees, ponds and manicured grounds provide a spectacular backdrop for over one mile of adrenaline-spiking chicanes, blistering straightaways and high speed sweepers. Members race dirt bikes and quads, challenged by elevation changes of 50 feet and tight turns. Membership in the club has allowed up to 260 days of annual road course access, all supported by an inspired team of technical, safety and coaching professionals. Everyone involved in Moto 1 Long Island is ready for it to become the karting and motorsports complex it was always intended to become.
M1 Long Island is on a major secondary road through a target-rich environment. In a beautifully wooded environment, the location is close to the largest water park in the Northeast, multiple restaurants, shopping and World Trade Center Memorial. Calverton is in Suffolk County, NY, the easternmost county in the USA, with a 2015 population of approximately 1.5 million. It boasts high median household and family incomes. Together with its easy access to New York City and beyond, the location is unparalleled for a motorsports facility of this type.
