All About Karting with Abdulaziz Altayar

Where do you usually practice karting during the summer, and what makes that location specifically special for you?

I usually train at the JCC Karting circuit. It’s a fantastic facility with perfect grip and brand new cars that perform amazingly. The track layout and space are perfect for developing skills and having fun with friends.

 

Morning or evening training sessions?

Definitely morning sessions. I actually have a thing I stick to where I race the sun. I’ve tested myself and the mornings are when I’m at my peak energy, so I try to get my exercise done before the sun comes up.

 

Beyond karting, what’s your favorite summer activity to take on in Jeddah, and why?

Summers here are quite hot, so my favorite summer activity to take on would be going to the beach and jumping into the water – swimming and snorkeling are my go-to. Besides that, I enjoy biking, usually by Jeddah’s corniche, and I recently got into Padel with alongside my brother, and we’re quite competitive.

 

What advice would you give young racers looking to explore karting as a summer activity?

My main advice is to stay dedicated, commit fully, and always give your best effort. Keep practicing and training to improve, even if you don’t win right away. We’re all working together to build a strong future for motorsports in Saudi, so start now and give it your best shot!
