GoPro Motorplex Celebrates 3-Year Anniversary, Grand Opening of New Corporate Event Space

Today marks the three-year anniversary for GoPro Motorplex, the 0.7-mile, 11-turn race track and state-of-the-art karting facility that sits on 30 acres in Mooresville, NC. GoPro Motorplex’s third year in business was highlighted by the grand opening of two expansion projects that broke ground just last October.

“Milestones are important in any business and the three-year anniversary of GoPro Motorplex is no exception,” said Justin Marks, GoPro Motorplex Owner. “Over the past three years, we have made significant investments in the business to continue to grow and develop the racing experience for our customers. While I am proud of what we have accomplished as a company over the past few years, continuing to improve the customer experience will remain at the top of our list of priorities.”

A Look Back at Year Three:
NEW Website Designed by Synchronicity Web Designs
Launched June 22, 2015, GoPro Motorplex debuted an entirely revamped website designed by Charlotte-based company, Synchronicity. The redesign featured a GoPro-filmed homepage promotional video to show website visitors the high-adrenaline, outdoor karting experience they can enjoy at GoPro Motorplex.

KartSport North America Sets up Shop
On June 6, 2015, KartSport North America, GoPro Motorplex’s onsite kart shop, servicing the karting needs of customers year-round opened a brand new 6,000 sq. ft. shop. GoPro Motorplex prides itself on being a truly turn-key karting facility, so having an on-site kart shop is an important feature of the facility. Oftentimes, customers who may begin racing the fleet of rental karts then progress to purchasing their very own kart. This is where KartSport North America is able to help with kart sales and service as well as karting equipment needs.

Grand Opening of Indoor Corporate Event Meeting Space
Announced just last October, GoPro Motorplex planned the expansion of the facility to include a 2,500 sq. ft. indoor entertainment space to host group and corporate events. Last month, GoPro Motorplex opened the event space, allowing the facility to now host small and large-scale events for companies wishing to entertain clients, customers and employees with an exciting and unmatched experience. Corporate team building outings at GoPro Motorplex now include space to meet, eat and race all in the same place.
