Rock Island GP coming soon!


The 21st edition of the legendary Rock Island Grand Prix on September 5-6 will feature a new class, designed for the club level racer and provide them with a seat in the most prestigious street race in the country.  The US chassis manufacturer Margay Racing has teamed up with Rock Island Grand Prix and MavTV to introduce the new spec Arrive & Drive ‘Ignite Shootout’ class that will provide competitors with equal equipment, shifting the focus from equipment advantages to driver ability.


“The RIGP is not only a great race, it’s a gathering…a pillar of the great karting events, its one not to be missed and the Ignite Shootout is the perfect opportunity for those from around the country and from outside of the country to ‘fly & drive’ and compete in this labor day weekend classic” said Margay Racing owner Keith Freber.

If close racing and low costs aren’t enough, the MavTV film crew will be on hand filming for a broadcast for their Motorsports Road Trip TV series.  The film crews will be present on both days of competition compiling racing coverage, on board video and driver interviews.
