Kart-World Kazakhstan

Project’s getting pretty serious now, all the configuration aspects are decided.

Layout:


Thoughts? Ignore the ‘width’ it’s just to show the layout. It’ll be between 4.5-5.5m wide pretty much everywhere.

Fleet (initial):
Sodi RSX2 x20
Sodi LRX (junior) x6
Sodi kidracer x2 or 3

Apex Timing suite

Going with rollovers and belts purely because of the plethora of concrete pillars

Prestigious location in the capital’s special economic zone, which gives me some tax relief benefits. Sitting above is a shopping mall, office block, residential tower and a busy Sheraton hotel in the same complex.

Long way to go still to get it to fruition, I’ll share the milestones along the way

Looks sweet to me. How long is it?

Waiting for the designers to confirm. Should be around 600m, maybe a bit more. The foot print is something like 115m x 45m

With the Sheraton, I think you’ll get some bored business travelers sending it!

Very cool that you are taking this leap. So now we have another race director/facility owner to give us the “other side” of karting, the biz stories/challenges.

@Stacker doesn’t this remind you somehow of Autokomerc?

Back straight to finish is almost the same!!!image

Excited for you. When you do anticipate you might open? I have old Sodi RX7’s and it’s hard to fault them, they are well thought out and spares are still available.

Shooting for June. Once everything is in place by end of this year I need then to apply for a business visa and company incorporation which takes about 4 months. Then about 2 months to build the facility.

Oh well, that looks preeetty similar I would say. At least looking from the layout picture, it does remind me of it. It does seem more open and faster but general idea is quite close. It has a hairpin as well, similar lap ending, a bit stretched at the beginning but that is about it.

600 meters is about 1/3 mile correct? That seems like a really tight track. Looks fantastic though, I like the layout, looks fun.
