Mike mentioned a Month or so ago that he finally got the funding to build the second track. Showed me the plans too. It will be beside the current .8 mile course and be able to connect making a Super Track.
I just remembered the other Track in North Texas area. KartMoto in Cresson, TX (Southwest of Fort Worth) at the Motorsports Ranch facility. The Ranch has been around for a while, but I think that KartMoto is relatively new. Maybe a few years old.
Thanks guys. This helps. I need to start talking with people who have done this recently and gone through finding land, getting permits etc. I’m figuring it out as I go… but it would probably go better if I chatted with people who have done this already…
Yeah ideally I need a permanent home for ice karting so we can do dirt in the summer and generally run things more efficiently. Temp location and working from containers was fine for proof of concept…but it sucked. Staff deserve better conditions.
Amarillo has been around a while, but is a private track. We will have the final round of the Texas Sprint Race Series there in September.
COTA is no longer doing the bring your own kart. It is only their rentals, which is what their league races are.
KartMoto is new last year. They just finished the track last year, but still need to do the infrastructure for karting events. The last round of the Texas Sprint Race Series was supposed to be held there, but since they hadn’t gotten the pit area paved, it was moved. This is a member only track with regular dues and fees.
San Antonio Kart Complex just opened this year. Currently it is rental karts, but I think they have plans to allow personal karts on the track at some point. I also think they will plan to expand in the future because the current track is only partial of what their initial plans were.
