Work at Goodwood Kartways has definitely hit the finishing straight, after a second successful week brought the resurfacing project near completion. All major facets of the project are now complete, and while the track cures this week, the crew will hit the bottom of the job list.

“The Crupi Paving crew with support from Con Drain Construction were just amazing to work with,” said Track Manager Daniel Di Leo. “They really made the Goodwood job a priority. They had over 30 employees on site last Monday morning with 15 machines and two spreaders. By midday Tuesday, all the paving was complete! All the curbs were backfilled, verging around 900 metres of asphalt was completed, and the track began its curing process with water cooling. It was awesome to see their effort, and it’s awesome to see the track taking its final shape.”

Also ticked off in week two, all edging was done around the track, with over 25 yards of soil used to complete the task, and all run-off areas were seeded. Line painting was also initiated, and will be a big part of the third and final week of renovations after the placement of the new exterior curbing outside turn one and on the right side of entry to turn four. All curbs will then be painted red and white, starting corrals and the start/finish line will be painted, and new signage will be posted around the facility. The safety barrier will be installed in front of the turn one retaining wall and the first kart will take to the surface on the week of Monday (May 14).
