FCR Taupo Karts


Here at Formula Challenge we decided in early 2018 to expand to karts. We aim to provide the ultimate Motorsport experience for everyone. 

In September 2018 work began on our track. After testing the track numerous times we believe we have come up with a track that everyone will love.

In October 2018 we finished work on the track, passed our worksafe inspection and were ready for operation. Also in October all of our karts arrived from overseas.
