A VERY SPECIAL GUEST

Kayls Cole will be competing at the WCMCC Kart Race at Adventure Park, Watergrasshill on March 11th at 5pm.



I asked Kayls about her amazing journey in Karting.


Well, I started racing in 2017 at 14 years old in junior karting (just for abit of fun)

I competed all around Ireland with Tullyallen kart club, not much knowledge behind the wheel but I took to it very quickly, I was always a spectator in motorsport all my life but always wanted a go behind the wheel.

In 2018 I've done another year in Junior karting and won Junior Driver of year along with some podiums around the country.

It’s always been a family run team, dads always been my mechanic.

In 2019 I just turned 16 and moved up to senior karting, racing against lads twice my age, Surprisingly I was very quick to start off the season, taking multiple podiums across 3 championships.

I won the Munster karting championship, won the Tullyallen karting championship and came 3rd in the Motorsport Ireland championship, was a bit unfortunate that year as I was leading the MI championship but my plug fouled 2 finals and points only count in final so I lost out big time, we also ventured over to UK that year due to my progress in Ireland and first time there I came 2nd all weekend.

All in all 2019 was a mega year as I would only been racing 2 years, I knew from that point, it was a career path I wanted to take.




In 2020, we started looking to move to cars. With covid hitting cars was out on hold but I still tested multiple cars - Ginetta G20, F1000 Etc.

Still in 2020 I competed in multiple kart races around UK, British kart champs, Kartmasters, Teeside, Rowrah.

I came 5th in British Champ Rookies & some podiums across club rounds. I was up against some of the best in world at these events so it was amazing to be competitive. I gained so much experience in the UK.

In 2021, I moved to cars in UK, the F1000 single seater championship (R1 bike engine), I raced around different tracks like Silverstone, Brands Hatch etc... and that year I won the Rookie championship on a competitive grid of 29. I also did some on and off kart races in UK and Ireland just to keep sharp in seat.

Last year 2022, I have done another year in F1000 but it wasn’t our year. My car pretty much didn’t run great all year with clutch, engine problems and so it really set us on back foot.

One race at Silverstone GP last year was when car ran sweet, I actually qualified 18th on 46 single seater car grid and throughout the weekend was battling in top 5/6. Considering we didn’t have the best of luck last year, I had many opportunities. I was also invited by Porsche GB to the UK to test there GT4, GT3, Boxster with the Great Britain team.

The West Cork Motorcycle Club would like to Thank Kayls for entering our Kart Race on Saturday 11th March.


We can't wait to see you race up against our Top Motorbike Road Racers, Short Circuit Racers, Motocross Racers.
