Soon, you can cut an apex, overtake and take the lead at the region’s first E-karting track, coming up at Dubai’s Meydan One Mall by 2020.
First E-kart track in UAE by 2020
Spanning a whopping 4,000 square metres, the eco-friendly karting zone consists of multiple level karting tracks. The E-karts, unlike the traditional petrol-fuelled Go-karts, will be fully electric thus won’t have exhaust fumes and generate less heat, so racers won’t be required to wear protective racing suits. Not to mention the torque, E-karts are better at hitting top speed quicker than Go-karts.

“New-age experiential destination”
As if a ski slope, aquarium or an ice lounge isn’t enough, Dubai is about to get another experimental attraction to its malls. Fahad Abdulrahim Kazim, Vice President of Meydan Malls at Meydan Group, said, “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.
“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 of that evolution.”
Meydan One slated for 2020 opening
There’s a great deal of anticipation ahead of Meydan One’s opening next year. The ground-breaking luxury destination spans 40,406,320 square foot, featuring the 711m tall Dubai One tower, dancing water features, a 4km canal, a berth marina, 5.3km bicycle and jogging trails, a 9km boardwalk, a 300m long beach and a one of a kind heritage village.
