Dubai’s Meydan One is set to include the region’s first indoor electric go-karting track.
Meydan One, the lifestyle and retail destination that will open in 2020, signed a partnership with UAE-based E-Karting to build a multi-level, 4,000-square-metre e-track.
Each kart's engine will boast increased torque to provide racers with a high-powered karting experience that is completely free of noise pollution and exhaust fumes, enabling racers to jump into the driving seat without having to change into heat-resistant suits.
Meydan One said the track has been designed by leading European experts in the karting industry, with advanced performance metrics that accurately measure each driver’s key data, such as average speed, oversteer, understeer, top speed and distance covered, the experience is bound to get customers revved up and raring to go.
Speaking on the partnership, Fahad Abdulrahim Kazim, vice president of Meydan Malls at Meydan Group, said: “This is the stuff of dreams for kids from five to 50. For us, hosting the region’s first multi-level indoor karting track is another step towards becoming a new-age experiential destination that operates beyond just the retail space.”
Kazim added: “The racing concept E-Karting has pioneered is second-to-none, immersive and just plain exciting. Furthermore, the fact that this is one of the cleanest, most eco-friendly ways of getting your thrills and spills on the track shows how far the entertainment-retail concept has evolved, and how we’re at the forefront that evolution.”
Khaled Al Qubaisi, managing director of E-Karting, said: “We are pleased to collaborate with Meydan One in bringing an innovative and high-octane entertainment experience to the destination and maximising its customer offerings.”
The will be located on the ‘Entertainment Floor’ of Meydan One.
