Fastline Group, the global one-stop shop for racing, rental and concession karting centres, continued to find areas for diversification in 2010.

Despite a slowing in the group’s major markets due to the economic downturn, Fastline earlier this year announced a new partnership with ASI, giving the company greater representation in the burgeoning Middle East region.

"We have been increasing our range of consumables and venture into new markets," said company spokesman Simon Heap. "We are building a solid reputation providing quality, value for money products, which we are looking to introduce into Europe next year.

"For us the year is not over yet, with TeamSport – the largest player in the UK – about to launch two new centres in London and Bristol.

"TeamSport has turned to Fastline to provide the venue management system and other products. We also have several new projects in Europe and a large redevelopment in Egypt."
