It’s gonna be 1.3 kilometers long, the longest kart circuit in the Middle East, and it’s set to open this month! It’s located in Mtein, the hometown of the man behind this project, Walid Bou Sleiman.
We have a lot of kart racing enthusiasts in Lebanon (myself included!) but the existing tracks were too tiny (400 meters was the largest in Lebanon) and the cars weren’t always up to par. This place is gargantuan, located on an 80,000 square meter plot of land nestled high up in the mountains with an absolutely breathtaking view.
This track will hopefully put Lebanon on the kart racing map, attracting folks from abroad as well as helping local racers hone their skills on this gorgeous track in this breathtaking location.
