At one point in his life, and after creating the super sports car factory Ascari Cars, Dutch billionaire and championship-winning racing driver Klaas Zwart hovered over Andalusia and chose an area just 10 kilometres from Ronda to shape his true purpose in life: a safe race resort located in a beautiful secluded valley combining luxury with adrenaline.
And just like that Ascari Club was born, a private fully fledged racing circuit—and the first of its kind—to test your wheels on. The Dutchman owns a fleet of racing cars, some of which are available for members of the Ascari Club to drive. So whether you want to drive something of your own in anger, borrow from the fleet or just soak in the sun, this resort ticks all the boxes.
Inspired by Zwart’s favourite circuits and built for the most powerful cars on the planet, the environmentally-friendly layout stretches across 5 kilometres on a 174-hectare estate. Aside from the racetrack, the site also boasts a highly exclusive Club serving innovative, local, seasonal, organic and tailored haute cuisine to fit the members’ personality and discerning taste buds.
