Motorsport – Improving Individual & Team Performance

The Metropolitan Borough of Wigan is blest to have its own racing circuit = Three Sisters Racing Circuit ion Ashton-in-Makerfield. The borough is part of the Greater Manchester City Region – a leading player in the Northern Powerhouse

We are leveraging this unique sporting venue to bring education, skills development and health benefits for young people and local residents. And leading efforts to redevelop the site as a centre of excellence for research & development and testing of electric and autonomous ( self-driving) vehicles.

We run the following motorsport programmes to build confidence, technical  and team working skills and community cohesion:-

ProtoGP Schools Kart Challenge

Formula Girl

Community Karting

In 2018 we will be launching a new Wigan Community Karting championship where every month local residents aged 10+ can race teams from others wards in the borough at Three Sisters Racing Circuit.

We want to boost participation in this great family team sport, and create opportunities for residents of all ages to volunteer as race marshalls, mechanics and engineers, and general grid mates.
