New concept TAG E-karting to open in Sainte-Thérèse, Canada
Famous Quebec racing driver, Alex Tagliani, is set to inaugurate the TAG E-karting & Amusement Centre in Canada in the spring of 2021.
An investment of $18 million has realised the country’s first multi-level electric karting centre – think go-kart track crossed with a laser tag game arena.
The TAG E-karting & Amusement Centre will include nine activities including a combination of three karting tracks, a laser tag game arena , six axe throwing lanes, six bowling lanes, an interactive 7D cinema from Triotech, interactive trampolines, a multisensory virtual reality experience, numerous latest generation arcades and an interactive wall for children – all under one roof.
This long-coveted project by the passionate racing enthusiast naturally puts karting in the spotlight, offering an unparalleled racing experience. A set of three trails over three levels – one for adults, one for children and a half-mile super trail combining the two – will feature a total of six course choices, each of which can be completed clockwise or clockwise. reverse. Imported from Italy, the karts will be 100% electric, silent, non-polluting and odourless (zero emissions). These are the most sophisticated electric models in the world, first offered in North America.
Equipped with a digital steering wheel, sensors integrated into the bumpers for safety and a Boost button for accelerated passing, these professional-calibre cars bear the prestigious CRG branding. Safe management of the karts will be ensured by an artificial intelligence platform.
“I am thinking of all the young people and thrill seekers who want to let off steam and give free rein to their adrenaline! says Alex Tagliani. The TAG E-karting & Amusement Centre will be the new generation recreational hub par excellence, an exhilarating place for an outing with friends, colleagues or family. Better yet, I see this project – the first multi-level electric karting center in Canada – as a springboard to eventually develop talents that will make future Quebec karting champions. ”
The TAG E-karting & Amusement Centre will occupy 65,000 square feet in a brand new building in Plaza Sainte-Thérèse, which is currently undergoing a major transformation by the MACH Group. The initiative is the result of a partnership between pilot Alex Tagliani and Vincent Chiara (president of the MACH Group), Mario Bouchard (founder of iBwave), Richard Scofield (president of the St-Hubert Group), France Dubé and Tommy-John Gélinas (GD Lead real estate developers) and Jean-Frédéric Laberge (property manager and racing driver).
