Partnership Presentation 2011 Copyright 2011 MacG Racing Ltd.
Introduction and History 1995 Copyright 2011 MacG Racing Ltd. The team was founded in 1996, racing 100cc TKM karts competitively at club level, including race wins, until late 2002 when the team took a sabbatical for a few years until 2006 in order to focus its attentions on other exploits. In this time the team acquired a Ducati 748 which has seen action on a few of the countrys major tracks including Donington, Croft and Silverstone. In 2006 the team took the plunge into Karting once again, this time in the Rotax Max class. The 125cc liquid cooled 2 stroke engine produced a great deal more power than the 100cc air cooled units used in the TKM class, and coupled with softer tyres and a stiffer, more robust chassis, the result was much faster racing. Racing has continued at various levels from early 2006 until also saw the birth of the teams latest acquisition; a 7 litre, 600bhp Ultima GTR. Ordered in the second quarter of 2006, the team has been constructing the vehicle in various stages. 2006
