Track Facilities IMPROVED!! - Status July 2004
this year, City Karting has embarked on a program of upgrading
and improving the track and its public facilities. The continuous
improvement started with the turfing of the
track and slight track layout modification. The result of the
track modification have been outstanding, making the track
more technical & challenging to drive on - not doubt also
less forgiving if you make a mistake!
In the 2nd
phase of the track upgrade program, we are also building
permanent structures to replace the earlier semi-permanent
paddock structure. The highlight of the addition will be the
combined race control/VIP located one the 2nd storey of our
new paddock building.
View from the track -
now everyone can see where you spun!
On the ground
floor of this building, we will have a small workshop and
storage area, which will be used to store our fun karts. A
covered area immediately behind the workshop, will be useful
for race days - for race scrutinising, weighing in and
Just a short
distance away, a permanent male/female toilet is built for the
comfort of all our drivers, guest and supporters.
Toilets for those in
need...beside the dummy grid!
In view of the
present work status, we anticipate the facilities to be fully
functional by end of July. ( subject to council release of the
would like to thank its sponsors for this upgrade project and
is committed to bring to Shah Alam an international karting
facility & promote karting, to our youth as a healthy
Upgrading Details - UPDATED 1st QUARTER 2004!
The track as
known by most was closed for significant upgrades which mainly
involved the turfing of the center section of the track and
also some outside sections. This is done to enhance the
technical feature of the track, making it a more permanent
& proper kart track now - with no possibilities of a
track....the green is a welcomed addition)
In addition to
the turfing, the layout of the track was changed slightly - to
again make it a more challenging circuit to drive on The
biggest change centers around the 2 hairpins at the far end of
the circuit. Before the upgrade, the hairpins are close to
each other and driven as one section. Now, a short straight
connects the tow, which effectively also lengthens the track.
areas of change involves Turn 1, the rear Sweeper, the
introduction of the race pit and the modification of some
track, we are also constructing a paddock building and also
proper toilets! - a long overdue basic amenities. All this
will enhance your driving experience with us and make our
circuit, one of the best in the region for track technicality,
location and now facilities!
