Great news for karting fans in the area, a new karting circuit is currently being constructed at the Hipodromo Costa del Sol (the horse racing track in between Fuengirola and La Cala de Mijas).
Details are a little sketchy at the moment, according to the website the new kart circuit will be opening in April, although a sign at the side of the circuit says May. If it is going to go where I think it is, on a large plot of land to the left of the entrance which is being built up, I think this may be an optimistic target! No tarmac has yet hit the gound!
We will keep you up to date with progress, but it is a very welcome new facility. Fuengirola had a great little Karting club and track, called Karting Mijas which was located on the Coin Road. It was a shame when this closed down about 5 years back. The new Fuengirola Karting track will be a great addition to the many great things to do in Fuengirola.
For those that can't wait try Funny Beach for karting in Marbella, or for a more serious track, which is a fair drive our from Marbella try karting in Campillos.
More news and pictures when we get it!
