BATTIPAGLIA, SELE
Description In 1985 a kart track (the first in Campania) was opened and used only for free tests. First race was run only in 1987. From 1991 to 1993 it hosted Italian Karting Championship. In 1996 some modifies were made and kart track was lengthened up to 1200 m. In 1997 some more changes were made, in order to make the track suitable for cars and motorbikes. From 2002 car activity was favoured. In 2004 paddock was enlarged (now it is 8000 m² wide, completely asphalted) and new management wanto to attach back importance to kart: target is host again titled kart races in 2006.
