Construction of a $20 million pit building and hotel at the Bend Motorsport Park has begun.

The four-storey, 300-metre-long building will also include a car showroom, function rooms, viewing decks and commercial kitchens above 34 pit garages.

Adelaide-based Romaldi Constructions will aim to finish the building by January 2018.

Sam Shahin, the venue’s executive director, said it would be “an iconic, world-class destination” unlike almost any other.
