KartMania, the UK’s leading kart show, is delighted to announce a partnership which will see KartMania 2012, in association with Karting Magazine, move to Silverstone.
KartMania 2012 will take place on the 17th & 18th November in the prestigious Silverstone Wing exhibition complex, which promises not only a great new venue but new ideas and a new layout as the coveted show celebrates its 6th anniversary in 2012!
Last year’s KartMania event attracted more than 3,500 visitors and this exciting move will see KartMania become a regular fixture at the Home of British Motor Racing. The move will also see a number of exciting developments, including the launch of four distinct zones for the 2012 event;
The KartMania main Exhibition Hall, celebrating karting - providing existing and want-to-be karters with the chance to meet championship organisers, suppliers and other key people as they look to finalise their 2013 plans
The Rotax LIVE Karting experience - the new Silverstone venue will allow karters to experience the action first hand, with two LIVE experience opportunities. One will allow attendees the opportunity to race against friends and other attendees in a series of rounds, with a selection of prizes on offer. The second will provide an opportunity to test new karts and new parts that are on offer from the leading manufacturers and series organisers
In addition to the main exhibition and live karting experience, there will be the KartBoot section - for drivers and enthusiasts to purchase second hand components, parts and memorabilia and a learning zone which will run workshops from universities and industry experts.
Silverstone which is recognised as the home of British Motor Racing, has made significant investment over the last few years, which has seen the venue transformed into a world class exhibition and conference facility.
Richard Phillips, Managing Director of Silverstone Circuits Limited, said, "We are very pleased to be welcoming KartMania to Silverstone in November. The show will add to the diverse range of events being held in the building this year and we hope that it remains on our calendar for many years to come".
Martin Capenhurst, organiser of KartMania, added: “We are delighted to have secured Silverstone as the new venue for KartMania. This move provides us with an opportunity to substantially increase the size of the show, have four specific areas, which includes a live area for visitors to try and test karts, and of course the opportunity to take part in in the inaugural Rotax Kart Mania kart challenge”
