Long time Gold Sponsors of Velocity Motorsport Magazine, Pitstop Karting in Townsville has just been given the green light to begin the works on their brand new outdoor Karting circuit.

In April Pitstop posted on their Facebook Page, “We are in the final stages of council approvals and can’t wait to be back up and running again. We will update our progress in the coming weeks.
We are local and have tried to use local business throughout the process. Nothing has been any trouble from the team at Setch Design. 3D model looks awesome!”

Mid last year Pitstop closed their indoor karting track after the lease ran out on the building. “We’ve wanted our own venue pretty much since we opened, and now with the new development thats going to happen, its a big thing for Townsville, and we love the place,’ said Dale Dunston Pitstop owner to Velocity mag.

“We are also very excited that we are progressing to an outdoor venue, this will allow us to grow, it really is an upgrade to what we’ve run in the past, the new track layout is going to be amazing, I cannot wait till we break ground and then get up and running” beamed Dunston.  The new venue is situated in the suburb of Garbutt near the Townsville airport.
