The karting season has resumed in the Principality, only this summer the track has been set up in its winter location under the Oceanographic Museum.
With all the cancellations this summer, it’s nice to hear about something that is actually going ahead. A karting circuit has now been set up by Karting Indoor Monaco in the Parking des Pêchers located under the Oceanographic Museum on the Rock.
Normally, summer karting happens on the Quai Albert 1er, but due to the many event cancellations this summer, the parking lot is available for use. As it is a covered area, the location is ideal for getting out of the sweltering summer sun while still having fun.
The circuit has been redesigned this year and now features a reception area and outdoor stands so the route could be made longer. Even better, the organisers have said they are going to prolong the summer karting season to meet up with the winter one, if all goes well. This will mean karting fans can enjoy the track until the end of February.
The track will be open from Tuesdays to Sundays starting at 3pm and running until midnight, and is a great activity to do with the whole family.
The organisers have taken all the necessary sanitary measures to ensure safety. To that end, they will disinfect the karts and helmets after each use. They will also offer balaclavas for sale to be worn under the helmets for added protection.
During the school holidays in August, October, December and February, an academy will be set up for aspiring drivers. These training sessions will be on offer for a day or a week during the usual business hours.
