PRESS RELEASE

We heard you El Paso and now, after much anticipation by local, regional, and international racers, the El Paso Motorplex is proud to announce the commencement of Karting operations.  Kart racing currently operates on the 3-acre Motorplex kart racing area, but in just a few weeks, the 3-acre area will be expanded into a completely repaved 5-acre racing surface.  

The Motorplex has brand new rental karts on the way from the manufacturer which should arrive in just a couple of weeks.  There will be karts for all sizes of drivers from kids to adults.  Karting participants can bring their own kart for open lapping sessions too. Helmets and other protective equipment is available for rent. 

Fully sanctioned racing occurs monthly and falls under the World Karting Association rules and regulations in all racing classes. Kart racing classes include kid-sized karts and goes all the way up to the Kings of the sport, the super-fast and competitive Shifter Karts.  Racers will benefit from an all-new timing and scoring system, plenty of pit space, ample room for race team rigs, and more.  

Spectators are always welcome and will enjoy Grandstand and bleacher seating, blanket (picnic) seating, a full concessions area, full indoor restroom facilities, plenty of parking, and more.  There is plenty of room for tailgating too! 

The Motorplex has already hosted some local racer in a few exhibition events already and they love the existing track.  Their feedback has been taken very seriously and will be incorporated into all aspects of kart racing developments at the Motorplex.  

Racing will occur once a month on Saturday‚Äôs at first, but will increase as membership and participation increases. Rental karting will begin as soon as our karts arrive, so get ready to have big family fun at the El Paso Motorplex!

More information including private track rental ratesracer amenities, membership rates, membership levels, and pricing will be released in the upcoming days.  Information and updates are always posted on the El Paso Motorplex Facebook page as it happens.
