The other heroes from this weekend were on the track but not as drivers. They have wheels and their names are EKR SR3 Briggs & Stratton 420! We want to say that they were truly impressed with the quality of these go-karts. During this very intensive and long race they kept strong and stable all the time. The true winners are EKR Renal Karting for making these amazing go-karts. Respect for you and we are glad that we work together with Ángel Burgueńo Gutiérrez & Antonio Martínez Carrasco and their team!

RaceSafety – Automatic Remote Control for Karting

Ensuring safety on a rental go-kart track is a key part of managers’ work. Karting is an experience for everyone – kids, youngsters, adults and professional drivers. They need to be prepared and responsible on the track but marshals still have a lot of work to keep them safe.

⊗ Without safety system

Until now – without safety system – track managers are using signalization with marshals, but this requires hiring and training a lot of people. On the one side, it is hard to find and keep quality workers especially during a busy period, but also there is a room for a lot of mistakes. In any case your costs and efforts will be significant.

Manual remote control

Other option is manual safety systems for remote control of go-karts. With these technologies you have to worry if a lot of situations are happening at the same time, because your marshals will have tough time dealing with all of them. And you are still depending on human reactions.

Nowadays RaceFacer is a global player in the karting industry with over 100 clients in more than 32 countries and more than 1,5 million users in our karting social network. And all this is achieved in just three years.

The beginning

Like every successful company, RaceFacer started as a real life problem that our founder Ivaylo Tzonev had in his work. During his time as owner and manager of karting tracks in Bulgaria he saw that the existing solutions on the market can’t fit the needs of his business. With the continued advancement of technology, he saw an increasing interest for new karting experiences in his customers. As a response, he came up with the idea to create the First Social Network for karting tracks and drivers– RaceFacer.com. After that, RaceFacer Timing & Track management software was developed – a fully functional, modern and cost effective solution for go-kart tracks of any size. The rest is a history full of enthusiasm, hard work and sleepless nights.

In the last years we are constantly adding new features, based on the valuable ideas and experience of track owners and managers from all over the world.
