The $2 million KF1 Karting Circuit was unveiled on Thursday afternoon during a preview session at the Singapore Turf Club. The karting facility, built and operated by Arina International Holding, is set to be launched in the last quarter of this year.

Located at the Singapore Turf Club, the circuit is designed by leading German engineer Herman Tilke, designer of several Formula One circuits such as the Port Imperial Street Circuit in the United States and Singapore's Marina Bay Street Circuit.

The circuit is approximately 900 metres long, with a minimum track width of 7m, and can be configured into two separate tracks.

It is also capable of hosting international karting races as it meets the Commission Internationale de Karting - Federation Internationale de Automobile minimum mark of 800m.
