What we're all about
We are a club for both karting enthusiasts and novices alike. If you have never tried karting before, this is your chance and what better time than during your college days. We’re all about having fun while karting, getting to know other members, making new friends and having a great karting experience while doing so. So whether you fancy yourself to be better than "The Stig” or just want to come along and have a great time on-track with a variety of different people, then get involved in our club and tag along on our trips!
DIT Karting Club is a club for DIT students and alumni.
From Humble beginnings to International races
DIT Karting Club was founded in DIT Bolton street by a small group of friends who enjoyed going karting as often as they could. Even in the early days, the passion and interest that the founders had for karting was truly something special. The great success and achievements of the club in the past has largely been due to this passion for karting that has been present every year in DIT Karting Club.
Today the club has over 300 hundred members and is growing every year. Not only is it one of the biggest clubs in DIT, it is also one of the most active clubs, hosting karting events on a weekly basis and special events during the year, with all of us looking forward to the big race in Galway for the John Hanrahan Cup, which is an annual event.
In August 2011, DIT Karting Club participated in its first International race at Teeside Autodrome in the UK. We have returned every year since, building on our experience and improving on our successes from the previous year. With a taste for international racing, there is nothing stopping DIT Karting Club from returning to the international race scene in the future with bigger and better expectations.
