Motor Racing (Karting)

MTU Cork Karting Club is a fun and exciting club where students get to experience the thrill of driving fast around a track.

The MTU Karting Club hold various club events throughout the year where our drivers get to compete against each other in timed trials at both the National Karting Centre Cork and Kart World in Watergrasshill. 

We also compete at the intervarsity's SSI Karting Championship. This championship is a great experience for students to experience what its like to compete in Grand Prix events and it is a fantastic opportunity to meet drivers from other club who may have more knowledge and experience in the sport.
