  • Architectural Design of Machakos County Formula 1 track proposal
  • Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua has promised to build a Formula 1 track by June 2022, fulfilling the campaign pledge he made before being elected into office.

    Governor Mutua through his social media page on Saturday, June 26, stated that apart from finishing the Formula 1 track, he would also lobby to have the next Safari Rally held in his county.

    Speaking exclusively to, Governor Mutua confirmed that the project is on course and will be located in the new Machakos People’s Park. The track will be approximately 12-14 kilometres long.

    Mutua, who announced his Presidential bid, stated that Machakos County Government under the County Road Project will finance the project.

    “At the moment there are no sponsors on board but they will join after the projects start to take shape,” Mutua stated.

    The track will be used by regular drivers as a normal road to control traffic. Justifying the reason to use the Formula 1 track as a road, Mutua claimed that the country is not economically stable enough to only use it for races. 

    Mutua pointed fingers at the former Senator Johnstone Muthama whom he accused of sabotaging the project.

    The second term governor assured that the case challenging the project was thrown out which means the county government is free to carry on with its execution.

    Mutua further stated that the county government in consultation with the National government is planning to build a modern airport in Machakos. The runway of the airport will be used for another racing event in addition to the one he will build in the Machakos People’s Park.

    The Maendeleo Chap Chap Party leader added that if the county builds a racing track, it will be much easier for Kenyans, especially Nairobians to attend events such as Safari Rally as the distance will allow most people to commute, unlike Naivasha which has forced most rally lovers to stay in hotels and tents.
