CLYDEBANK'S ScotKart has been taken over by an organisation planning to significantly invest in the site.

TeamSport has completed the acquisition of Scotland’s leading indoor karting operator and their laser tag business.

The company will take over the Clydebank track as well as Cambuslang and Dundee.

Dominic Gaynor, Managing Director of TeamSport Karting, said “We’re delighted to have finalised the acquisition of ScotKart.

“It’s a great well known and much-loved company which has many similarities to our existing business. This was what attracted us to the deal.

“The name ScotKart is synonymous with karting in Scotland so we intend to continue trading under this name and bookings will also continue through the friendly and professional events team based in Glasgow.”

The Clydebank venue, with ramps and fast flowing corners, offers one of the largest and most challenging indoor go kart tracks in Europe.

The new owners plan to provide a further level of investment and a programme of development.
