Go-Kart Racing On The Isle Of Man Is Terrifying

Apr 8, 2015
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.

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.
