Welcome to RetroRacer!

If you are looking to race karts from the ‘Golden Era’ of karting, then Retro Racer is for you! Classes range from the 1960’s to the year 2000, with eight rounds for the 2022 season. These include ‘SC’,  ‘E’ and ‘O’ Plate meetings respectively. Retro Racers’ policy is that karts are raced as close to the specification of their day as possible, both technically & cosmetically. The RR events are run in a friendly atmosphere where free advice and assistance is available to new & potential racers.    The Retro Racer paddock is always very welcoming, particularly for family groups. Many competitors socialise sharing gazebos, BBQs, music and even cake! Retro Racer weekends are a great way for attendees to experience social karting!

Thank you Retro Racer

RetroRacer has been almost like a ‘best kept secret’ in historic karting. I wish I could bring in more youngsters who cannot afford modern karting and let them see what they could do. Long life tyres, engines that’ll last, it’s fantastic, love it to bits.

Tim Parrott – World Superkart Champion ’89/’90

A lot more fun, a very cheap form of motorsport with which you still get your thrills and giggles. Why go anywhere else?

Andy Holmes – Gem Racing

A great excuse to have fun, get fit and for me personally, to drive karts from the ultimate 100cc era!

Ed Moore – Formula A Pre-95
