Manx Kart Grand Prix



History

In May 1985 the Isle of Man Kart Racing Association organised a kart race on a 1.25 mile long road circuit through the city of Peel. The one day meeting consisted of a practice at 6.30am and racing in the afternoon and evening.

Three years later the race was named the Manx Kart Grand Prix. A unique karting race circuit with straights and hills taking riders through a city centre and along a seaside promenade with challenging corners. Riders have been timed with speeds of 100mph with averages above 60mph.

Supported by the Special Events Unit, Department of Tourism and Leisure.
