Plans for New Track Extension

After several months of negotiation, the lease arrangements have been concluded and WSKC now have an additional 50 metre strip the whole length of the straight (and a bit more).

Chairman Bill McDonald expressed his thanks to Carol van Beusekom for her assistance with legal matters, and to David Major for drawings and support at the South Lanarkshire Council planning department meetings.

For your information a copy of the envisaged track layout and background can be seen on this web site. These plans having been tabled and discussed at the club’s AGM last November. The original design was tweaked very slightly by Steve Chapman who has been responsible for the design of several kart race tracks in the Middle East and other parts of the World.

We are now seeking MSA guidance on safety features and locations of marshal posts, before issuing the project to tender. Grant allocations from various agencies are being actively pursued and there is no doubt when it all comes together work parties will be organised to do any work that will keep the costs down.

As we progress we will keep you informed through this web site.
