Being a very small island with no professional tracks, practicing motorsport in Malta has always been an issue, and we’ve had to rely on a not very well maintained rental kart track to get some laps in. This is about to change, as this weekend a new track built specifically for karting, with approval of the FIA was inaugurated. While this might be something not as noteworthy in most countries, for us this opens up many possibilities, and makes the sport much more accessible, especially for parents who did not trust the older track with regards to the safety of their children. The track should be fully open as soon as some of the finishing touches (such as more barriers and curbs) are done.
Here is some footage I managed to capture throughout the weekend, both onboard as well as some drone footage.
