The kart track at MSR Houston is now open for business. The 1,200-meter, 8-meter wide course has already received rave reviews from members and visitors alike.
The course can be split to run simultaneously as two 600-meter tracks, the Monza loop and the Monaco loop. One of the highlighted features of the track is an 18-degree graduated banked turn. The course has a total of 17 turns and an 1,100-foot straight.
In addition to the track, construction is current underway for the kart building. Within the facility, there will be storage for over 125 karts as well as a full-service kart shop and race team. There will be locker rooms for men and women, a timing and scoring tower and an observation deck.
The facility offers everything from arrive and drive programs to corporate events using rental karts.
The track will host a local series with one to two races per month. The local series will be a Rotax National qualifying series for 2009. The track will host the final round of the Southwest Regions Cup September 27-28, 2008, as well as the 2008 Year End Awards Banquet.
MSR Houston Kart Track is exactly 13 miles south of Hwy 6 on the left hand side of the highway. Traveling south on Hwy 288, exit SOUTH CR 48 (not to be confused with CR 48). SOUTH CR 48 is right after FM 1462/Rosharon exit - just after you cross the power lines. You can't miss it.

"I would like to send out a huge thank you to Stuart Robinson of Kart Nation/Motorsports Development Group. Thanks to his fantastic coaching and advise my Formula Car season was a great success, our partnership in karting also proved to be successful with two wins and winning Southeast Karting Challenge Championship, I owe much of it to Stuart. What I learned from those races has definitely helped me in my racing career." ~ Bobby Eberle
