Circuit Racing is an enjoyable and exciting form of Motorsport. Compared to other forms of motorsport Circuit Powerboat Racing has an extremely economical entry level & very affordable running costs. It caters for all budgets and ages.
In Ireland, there are two main types of circuit racing boat – Monohull and Catamaran and within these types there are various classes from which to choose. You can start racing as young as 10 yrs. old, (10 in NI /16 in ROI) and stay in the sport to long after you retire.
Boats with engines over 1000cc are not usually available to newcomers who must first prove themselves capable of racing safely in smaller engine capacity classes.
Powerboat Race Training Days are available as a cheap and easy way to try your hand at driving a racing boat.
