SIMA International raceway will also be home to Italian Motors USA where a 30,000 square foot shop has already been constructed and where IMUSA has operated from since 2006. "I am very excited about the new facility," said Claudio Valiante from an onsite interview in Sumas. "I think it is everyone's dream to have a kart track at their disposal anytime and to be able to offer that not only to our customers but the karting community. You can never have enough tracks in my opinion. Furthermore, Italian Motors USA will be located at the track and we will be able to service any karting needs. It is a very exciting time to say the least."
Situated in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, SIMA is surrounded by lush green grass which keeps the dust to a minimum.
