It’s Official: New 1.1 Kilometer, 14-Corner Hamilton Karting Complex

There is an all-new 1.1 kilometer, fourteen-corner layout on the horizon for the Canadian Mini Indy. Canadian Mini Indy is set to rebrand the name of its racetrack as the Hamilton Karting Complex, and the new layout and design will be operational for the CKN Dash for Cash and the Motomaster Ron Fellows Karting Championship (MRFKC) this July.

The new track will feature a redesigned turn one that leads onto a fast straightaway toward a hairpin at turn two. From there, the all-new sector will challenge racers with mid-speed corners from turn three through to turn eight before the track will rejoin at the former turn four. Heading to a resurfaced turn nine and ten, drivers will then race towards reshaped and widened turns eleven, twelve, and thirteen before the lap concludes at a very fast turn fourteen. The new design has been strategically laid out to allow the track to be run both counterclockwise and clockwise to switch things up for a totally different track running clockwise.

Jordan Prior is now a two-time Canadian Karting Champion after a thrilling National Final.

The race started off with Prior (Prime/BirelART) leading Jon Treadwell (Prime/BirelART) and Nicky Palladino (MSR/Ricciardo Kart) getting away from the pack early but just prior to the halfway point, Treadwell went for the lead and the shuffling slowed the group up enough that the chasing pack featuring David Barnes (Prime/BirelART), Logan Ploder (PRO/CL Kart), Ari Korkodilos (REM/Kosmic), Frank Launi (MSR/BirelART) and Brennan Taylor (BirelART), caught up.
