Kart Racing Centre Takes On Exciting New Look

Just as the 2014 kart racing season completed its final event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, heavy equipment rolled onto the site to begin upgrading the popular venue to enhance the presentation of the facility to its customers for 2015 and beyond.

 

In addition to the new facility entranceway, the transformation includes track design changes, re-grading, new paving, trackside kerbing and other enhancements featuring new administration and operating buildings.

 

“Most of auto racing’s stars and high-level performers learned their craft in kart racing while at the elementary school age,” said Ron Fellows, co-owner of Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

 

“Our new-look Kart Centre will provide new and experienced kart racers an even greater opportunity to learn and enjoy the sport of kart racing. The upgrades represent ours and Canadian Tire’s continued commitment to enhance and improve driver development in Canada.”

 

”The investment that is taking place at our Kart Centre represents our confidence to provide a full-service facility to fit the needs of our racing-oriented customers and provides a state-of-the-art location for corporate events,” added President and General Manager Myles Brandt.

 

In addition to the physical upgrades, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park brings in new energy to the management of the Kart Centre.  Daniel and Marco Di Leo will assume responsibility for the karting operations. The Di Leo’s are well-known for having transformed North America’s oldest kart track, Goodwood Kartways, into a popular and successful facility.

 

“10 years ago we began our venture into the business of karting,” explained Daniel DiLeo.

 

“Through this period we gained valuable experience to better understand the growing demands of running a successful kart track. These lessons will be put to the test early at the new Canadian Tire Motorsport Park Karting Centre and we are very excited about the opportunities that come with a facility that is second to none in Canada.”
