Ghibli Raceway is delighted to continue with multi level motor Sports categories for 2017 by introducing a further two new categories in our Kart Sports Development (KSD 2017) which is approved and authorized by the local member of the FIA, the Automobile & Touring Club of Egypt (ATCE) and the Egyptian Federation for Motor Sports (EFMS). This include the following: –

In the Egyptian National Rotax MAX Challenge, namely the Micro category which is for 8 – 12 years driving the 8th hp Rotax MAX powered karts and the premium direct drive category which is 33.5hp and of course our long standing Junior & Senior RMC categories. This is in addition to the existing entry level Ghibli Cadet Cup (6 – 10 year olds), the arrive & drive race series Sodi World Series.

This year, Ghibli Raceway is proud to announce the availability of a seat for the winning drivers of the Micro, Junior, Senior & DD2 Master categories to compete at the next Rotax Grand Finals in late 2017 in Portimao, Portugal to represent Egypt as National Champions of their category.

This Saturday, the 14th May, saw the main attraction of the two day event that was the ENRMC & SWS round 5, hosted at Auto Vrooom by Ghibli Raceway. Both excitement and focus among both racers and organizers alike was high. The service area beside the pit lane was awash with eager competitors hurrying to make any necessary adjustments to their karts, the air filled with smoke as the exhausts roared, camera crews were busy conducting interviews and finding the perfect positions for their cameras, spectators were gathering, the atmosphere was perfect.

With such fierce competition throughout the categories every race drew attention – from the Junior ENRMC to the introduction of the new powerful DD2 category, driven by the more experienced racers.

Prior to the finals taking place, the participants and media gathered together to sign a memorial poster, speak with press & media and take part in the driver’s parade, culminating with a photo session with all racers on the final turn of the track.

The event was rounded off with a superb prize giving ceremony held in the spectator area – the podium was lit up by the multiple camera stands placed before it, fireworks soared as the racers were called to receive their medals.

It was brilliant to have so many enthusiasts come together to enjoy the races of the two days, we hope this event will grow in popularity and aid the development of the sport for the future.

A mention to all our competitors:
