Plans to join two existing buildings and merge indoor karting tracks in Sandycroft have been given go-ahead by Flintshire Council.

Apex Kart on Babbage Road in Sandycroft currently occupies two industrial units on Engineer Park, each housing a go-kart circuit.

Plans submitted to the council in May outline proposals to join the two buildings together with an ‘infill’ and merge the tracks to create one larger circuit.

Merging the two circuits will help achieve “competition status” and as a result increase the number of employees from 19 to 22, according to documents submitted by Parry Davies Architects.

The planning documents state, “The purpose of this extension for Apex Kart is to increase footfall and provide a greater customer experience.

This would also help setting the business apart from their current competitors by providing tracks on par if not better in terms of size and ultimately experience.”

The application was approved this week by a council delegated officer.

Apex Kart was established in 1989 and is one of the longest running indoor karting centres in Europe.
