A little history about the Club

lord louth.jpg

The Jersey Kart & Motor Club was officially founded in 1960 by The Rt Hon Otway Michael-James-Oliver Plunkett, Lord Louth XVI.

The club raced at the Belle Vue kart circuit in St.Brelade until 1994, when it was demolished and redeveloped for much needed housing. It is believed that the Belle Vue circuit was one of the first permanent kart racing venues to be built in Britain.


Today you can find the Club racing at the Ronez Loop Road, La Route du Nord, St John; a public road which is closed to allow racing on set weekends from March to October.  The Ronez Loop Road at Sorel is, to our knowledge, the only temporary kart race circuit registered by Motorsport UK - we guarantee competitors a unique challenge and some great scenery.

The Club runs a variety of Motorsport UK regulated kart classes for competitors as young as 6 and always welcome members new and old to come join in the fun at “The Loop”. 

We also offer catering facilities and free admission for spectators – making the event a good day out for any motorsport enthusiast! 

The purpose of the Club is to:

  • Encourage and promote kart racing as a sport in Jersey.

  • Continually develop, improve and provide a kart racing circuit for use by club members, schools and youth clubs.

  • Provide and develop a racing academy to promote, train, instruct and educate participants in kart racing, driving techniques, race-craft, kart handling, maintenance & repair and kart setup.

  • Provide a social forum and encourage like-minded individuals to explore motorsport in a family friendly environment.


More than 60 years of history and still counting...........
