An eventful and exhilarating first season comes to an end. We’re already preparing to welcome you back when we reopen on 1st March, but in the meantime, let's look back at what’s been a hectic 7 months.
The ACL's takeover of the famous Mondercange go-kart track was a great success, maintaining the popularity it has enjoyed for decades. The site will close for the winter from 1st November 2021 to 28th February 2022, providing an opportunity for us to look back at some of the highlights of the season.
Throughout the season, for a large number of leisure karting enthusiasts, we were able to organise a variety of events with our rental karts, such as races with qualifying rounds, grid starts and finals, endurance races, long-distance races, etc.
But there have also been some unique achievements or events on the site, such as :
The season kicked off with the ACL Challenge - a unique concept combining eSport with actual racing using the onsite go-karts. Divided into 3 events spread over 2 months, the competition honoured the most hybrid driver, i.e. the one who was equally at ease taking part in digital events and behind the wheel of a go-kart. This year's winner was young driver Thibaut Prevot.
The creation of the Maison du Cycliste, which provides a framework for training and brings together all the players and a network of experts in one place; in addition to hosting training courses for users, the Maison du Cycliste will offer information materials, teaching tools, activities and events, both on and off site, such as during mobility week.
The Maison du Motard, involving a large number of Luxembourg's motorcycle clubs, was created with the aim of promoting good practices for enabling different types of road-user to exist harmoniously side by side and promoting road safety. The ACL coordinates and organises various events designed to bring people together, including group rides, trips and driving courses. More on our bikers' pages.
The season in figures
The phone has been ringing off the hook since the track opened and the diary has often been full. We’ve hosted 9,000 sessions, including some 200 groups and 60 birthday parties, and our drivers, young and old alike, have completed 200,000 laps of the track, covering over 170,000km!
These figures are certainly encouraging, and we will take advantage of the winter break to prepare to welcome you back next year bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, and with new products to offer, but you still have 10 days in which to enjoy the track before it closes, so book your place soon!
