Kinrara Consulting, which is part of the Duke of Richmond’s Goodwood holdings, has announced plans to help with the development of the Oro Station Motor Circuit on property an hour’s drive north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Can the Canadian version of the Goodwood Festival of Speed be far behind?

“Oro Station is a new automotive industrial campus with a purpose built, multi-configuration racing circuit in Ontario, Canada,” Kinrara Consulting said in its announcement. “The circuit will be the home of the Bexley Motor Club, a new members’ organization for motoring enthusiasts.”

The Oro Station complex will include a 16-turn, 4.1-kilometer road course and adjacent automotive business park designed to “be home to engineering, education, service, supply and manufacturing businesses all centered around the art and joy of the automobile.”

The facility already has established a partnership with Georgian College for students to gain experience in involving marketing, technology, business and skilled trades.

“Inspired by, and much in common with the Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex, UK, Kinrara Consulting was a natural partner for Oro Station,” according to the news release. “Many of the facilities on offer at Oro Station have their counterparts at Goodwood, England’s leading sporting estate, including an exclusive members’ organization and the Goodwood Road and Racing Club.”

The Duke of Richmond was quoted in the announcement as saying, “Goodwood is always looking for new ways of sharing what we do and in Oro Station we have found a group of likeminded, passionate people who are as excited about creating exceptional experiences as we are.” 

“The Duke of Richmond and his talented team have created the pinnacle of automotive events at the Goodwood Estate,” said Geoffrey Campbell, Oro Station managing partner.
