As many of you know, Arena Essex is closing. They have sold their land and
it will be being turned into new housing. This has been reported by multiple outlets since it was announced. However, along with the coverage of this news, our name has been brought up and mentioned within some of the articles reporting the closure. This has led readers of these articles to assume that we’re closing too. But this is not the case!
We are not going anywhere!
We are very much alive and well and we’re staying open for a long while more! We assure you, that if we were to ever close down, that right here and our Social Media channels will be the ones to tell you! If we haven’t announced it ourselves, then it’s not true! Our Managing Director, Giles Murray had this to say
“Following the recent announcement that Arena Essex will be closing this year
I want to make it clear that racing will continue at Lakeside Karting under our
current lease agreement until 2027 at the very least. This site has a racing
heritage that goes back over 40 years and we fully intend to keep that going
well into the next decade”
“I want to reassure our customers, young or old, new, past, present and future
that they can enjoy the adrenaline-fuelled excitement of karting here at
Lakeside for years to come. When we launched back in 2002 we wanted to
bring the thrill of kart racing to Thurrock for everyone from 8 to 88. We
continue with that vision and have recently expanded to include 3-7 year olds
too.” stated Giles.
Also, we’ve just got our amazing new 390cc Karts for our track. We wouldn’t want them to be without a home! They did cost us an arm and a leg after all, and there are 60 of them, so… we’re definitely staying open!
Actually, don’t just read about it, why not come and see for yourself how open we are! Witness first hand how unclosed down our track is! We’ve got some great things happening this half term and also some exciting things planned for this coming Christmas season too!
So make sure you’re following us on ALL of our Social Media Channels for any updates on our deals, promotions and news! It’s the first place you’ll see things Lakeside Karting!
