First Look in Photos: Mosport Kartways Track Renovation

Following the completion of the 2014 racing season, the owners of the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park located just outside of Bowmanville, Ontario broke ground on a major renovation to the entire karting facility. After appointing the Di Leo family as the new managers of the facility, Daniel Di Leo along with the CTMP owners went to work on a complete repave of the track, including a major reconstruction of a section, as well a facelift to a facility in need.

Fast forward seven months and the upgrades are nearing completing with the gates opening up on Saturday May 2 for racers to finally hit the track.

CKN was able to sneak in a few days early to check in on the progress and have a first hand look at the updated layout.

Below are a handful of images we captured of the facility on Wednesday April 29. Keep in mind there was still plenty of work to be completed, including line and curb painting, grandstand installation, track sweeping and general clean up, but we wanted to give everyone a look before they did so for themselves this weekend.

Mosport Kartways will host the 2015 ASN Canadian National Karting Championships in August, as well as the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship in July, two of Canada’s biggest karting events of the year.


The tight turn 5 hairpin is just as daunting as before.


Proper exit curbs have been installed throughout the track.


The new turn six and seven before entering the Ron Fellows bowl.

A look back at corner eight, which leads into the Ron Fellows bowl.


The Ron Fellows bowl has been reconstructed. The banking has been removed, creating a much smoother experience.

It is very smooth on the exit of corner ten.


The unused hairpin outside of corner one has been removed.


Hundreds of new barriers have been installed around the Mosport Kartways circuit.
