GPX PARTNERS TO DEVELOP BOUNDLESS MOTORPLEX,
A NEW RACING COMPLEX IN WAXAHACHIE, TEXAS

DALLAS--GPX Partners, L.L.C. has announced the acquisition of a
1,420-acre parcel of land in Waxahachie, Texas, for the development of
Boundless Motorplex, a master-planned multi-faceted racing complex. The
complex will consist of three main race venues, the focal point of which
will be a 3.2-mile-long road racing course, which will be both
Federation Internationale de Automobile (FIA) and Federation
Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) approved. Boundless Motorplex will
be developed over the next 18 to 24 months with racing events scheduled
for the 2004 racing season.

At present there are no racetracks in the United States with FIA/FIM
approval. In addition to the road racing course, the Boundless Motorplex
complex will include a motocross village consisting of five tracks and a
50-acre jet ski and jet boat racing lake.

Total development cost of the complex is estimated to be $100 million.
The firm of Alliance Architects has been selected to develop the master
plan. Waxahachie is 25 miles south of Dallas on Interstate 35 and 35
miles south of Fort Worth via Highway 287. The subject tract is located
on Hwy. 287 minutes from I-35 and I-45 and is within 45 minutes of DFW
International Airport. The property has more than a mile of highway
frontage along Hwy. 287.

The road course will be surrounded by 100,000-grand stand seat, 120
track-side condominiums, more than 150 skyboxes, a luxury RV resort,
five racing schools, manufacturer and racing team testing facilities, a
racing-related business park, motorsport storage, and permanent garages.
An 18-hole championship golf course will be built adjacent to the racing
amenities.

"We are very pleased that has Boundless Motorplex selected Waxahachie as
the site for their racing complex," said Joe Jenkins, Mayor of
Waxahachie. "A project of this magnitude will have a significant impact
on the Waxahachie economy and provide a direct economic stimulus for our
area."

Les Wulf, president of GPX Partners, said, "We feel that the Metroplex
as a whole and the City of Waxahachie in particular will be the ideal
host partners as we hold international, national and regional events at
the race complex. We hope to bring significant economic value to the
area. This modern, state-of-the-art road racing course will set a new
tone and standard for road racing courses in the USA for years to come
and our overall complex will make it one of the premier sporting venues
in the country."

"Our emphasis will be on safety, having the most modern and
technologically advanced road track for both cars and motorcycles,"
Mr. Wulf added.

Having both FIM and FIA approval will allow Boundless Motorplex to
attract national racing events as well as international events that
presently do not race in the USA. "We are in discussions with numerous
racing organizations all over the world about staging events at our
complex in the 2004 racing season and beyond, and we should have some
very exciting announcements over the next two months," said Bobby
Hartslief, chief development officer for GPX Partners.

Jesse Shelmire, GPX chairman, added, "Boundless Motorplex will rank
among the top world class racing venues in the world, and its success
will be bolstered by the unique group of individuals we have assembled
in GPX Partners. To address every aspect of this project, we have
handpicked board level people that have world class experience in
building, promoting, participating, or managing a complex like the one
we are developing. I felt it was important to build this project in the
DFW area due to the absence of a true road coarse in one of the best
racing demographic location profiles in the world."

Placing the land under contract was the culmination of a five month
search by GPX officials encompassing the entire DFW area. The search and
contract were negotiated for GPX Partners by Coldwell Banker Commercial
SA. from properties owned by Ted R. (Rick) Ezzell and Sherry Conyers,
principals of TREEDevelopment, Inc.

20 minutes from the house, excellent.

Maybe now I'll finally get to see some real road racing in person.

Great news for all Texans. It's not even that far Houston, Austin and San Anton.

However, a 100,000 seat grand stand? Are they moving the rodeo from Ft. Worth? Give me a break.
