Rick Johnson & Sebastien Tortelli, have purchased Perris Raceway in Perris, California.
Both Johnson and Tortelli are former racers, having won multiple World & AMA Motocross and Supercross Championships.
A full and complete renovation is planned, to bring the facility up to
world-caliber standing. These plans include new infrastructure, three
race tracks, hospitality & lodging facilities, offices, and more.
Multiple series and races will be held at the facility as always, and
the new Champ Factory MX School will operate at Perris as well.
Rick Johnson said today “I wish I had a facility like this to help me
when I was younger. I enjoy teaching and instructing riders, and our
new facility will have everything we need in one place. We’ll have
camps and sessions for all skill levels, from beginner to pro. Over the
past few years, I’ve worked with Sebastien, we’ve become close friends,
and we are business partners in a multitude of areas, including Champ
Factory MX schools and Perris Raceway.”
And Sebastien had this to say “I always knew I wanted to be able to
give back to the sport. I have a lot of experience and knowledge I’ve
learned over the years, and I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge
with others. Our business model shows it should take almost two years
for the complete renovation of the Perris Raceway facility, and I think
everyone will be pleasantly surprised once our renovation is complete.”
