KartMania, the UK’s leading kart show, has announced a partnership with Silverstone and sponsors, Karting Magazine, moving the event to Silverstone for 2012. The show will take place on the 17th & 18th November in the prestigious Silverstone Wing exhibition complex. A KartMania spokesman said: "This promises not only a great new venue but new ideas and a new layout as the coveted show celebrates its 6th anniversary in 2012! Last year’s KartMania event attracted more than 3,500 visitors and this exciting move will see KartMania become a regular fixture at the Home of British Motor Racing." The new move will also see a number of new show developments, including the launch of four distinct zones for the 2012 event: The KartMania main Exhibition Hall, the Rotax LIVE Karting experience, the KartBoot section and the learning zone – offering the latest gear on display, kart driving opportunities, the chance to purchase second hand components, parts and memorabilia and a learning zone with workshops from universities and industry experts, respectively. Richard Phillips, Managing Director of Silverstone Circuits Limited, said: "We are very pleased to be welcoming KartMania to Silverstone in November. The show will add to the diverse range of events being held in the building this year and we hope that it remains on our calendar for many years to come." Martin Capenhurst, organiser of KartMania, added: "We are delighted to have secured Silverstone as the new venue for KartMania. This move provides us with an opportunity to substantially increase the size of the show, have four specific areas, which includes a live area for visitors to try and test karts, and of course the opportunity to take part in in the inaugural Rotax Kart Mania kart challenge." Adult tickets are available at £15.00, which includes free parking and free event programme.
