Go-Kart Racing On The Isle Of Man Is Terrifying
Apr 8, 2015
Though it might seem dangerous, this race is nowhere near as harrowing as the Isle of Man TT, a motorcycle race. During the 2013 event, a rider lost control of his motorcycle, which collided with spectators and injured 11 people.
Welcome to real-world Mario Kart. This crazy street race, held in Peel City on the Isle of Man, is the Formula E 250 Karting Grand Prix. The race pits superkarts, which can travel at over 150 mph, against one another as they fly through a town. At such high speeds and so little distance from the ground, the drivers definitely have to be brave to undertake a race on a course as tight as this. In fact, on bumpy roads, the karts can even fall apart.
