Next on Area 27 development plans include the construction of the new Area 27 Kartplex, which is now underway. Paving is expected to begin by the end of June with an anticipated opening later in July. Once completed, Motorsports enthusiasts of all ages will enjoy the purposeful challenges of a kart track designed by Canada’s most accomplished racer, Jacques Villeneuve. Jacques was recently on site working with the crews from Penticton’s Grizzly Excavating, meticulously shaping the various corners and undulating terrain. The special polymer modified asphalt racing surface will soon be applied by the expert crews of Penticton’s own Peters Bros. Paving company. 

The Area 27 Kartplex is an ‘open to the public’ opportunity that provides a full-service karting centre to customers of all ages and experience levels 7 days per week. Racers can simply drop in and go for a race or log-on to our booking system and reserve your time in advance.A fleet of state-of-the-art TB race karts, driving suits, and helmets will be on-site ready for those drivers looking to test their skills.
Similar to the full road circuit, the Area 27 Kartplex will be home to its own driving academy, staffed by experienced driver coaches and accomplished kart racers from all around the world. Kids camps, karting workshops, seminars, and private coaching will be available services to all customers regardless of whether you own or rent a kart.

Each of the Kartplex’s racing programs are tailored to the needs of the group regardless of the group type or size. Area 27’s Kartplex will offer several private rental opportunities including events such as corporate entertainment, birthday parties, bachelor / bachelorette parties, sports teams, and family reunions allow you to reserve the facility privately. This will be the first karting centre in North America to feature “Smart” electronic timing and safety systems by RaceFacer. It will feature a Social Network to easily book races, share experiences, and compare your performance with a network of kart racers from around the world. Stay tuned for an official opening date for the Area 27 Kartplex.
