An entertainment company is to take over the running of a motorsports park in Florida, US.

Andersen Race Park

FL Amusement Creations will assume the management of Andersen RacePark in Palmetto next month and it will be renamed the T4 KartPlex as part of title sponsorship from Tillotson Racing.

The change in ownership will see the 18-acre facility reintroduce arrive-and-drive kart rental and the addition of a trackside café and bar.

Later in the year, the facility also plans to welcome younger drivers, with the addition of a race car-themed kid’s village, which will include a 240m skill track for junior karts.

Charles A. Demirijian, president of Tillotson racing, said: “We are excited to announce this new relationship with FL Amusement Creations and are proud to play a role in creating one of the country's premier karting and entertainment venues.

“The T4 KartPlex will stand as a beacon of international racing and family fun in the US, and we are thrilled to be part of that experience.”
