raceway 1969

Welcome to Onchan Raceway home of stockcar racing on the Isle of Man since 9th June 1969. Onchan Raceway celebrated 40 years of racing a while back and over the years has seen lots of action take place on a weekly basis.
In 1987 I met Jake Cade the then promoter while racing at the Formula 2 World Final. Jake invited me across to race my F2 with the local drivers at the September meetings when the V8 Hot Stox were racing. After many visits we bought the business off Jake in 1992 As well as stockcars, Onchan Raceway now offers U Drive Karting and Minimoto’s for all ages. 2011 saw the successful addtion of the Awesome Monster Truck, which is available for rides around the outer track. Open daily from 10am as are the Go-Karts.

Entertainment for all the Family.

The oval 400m tarmac track was re surfaced in 1997 along with the a new catch fence and steel plaiting also erected in the same season along the start / finish straight. A new pit / track entrance gate wDSC_0251as built in 2009 and in 2010 more work to the catch fence was carried out.

Starting in mid April and throughout the summer weekly race meetings can be seen. The opening race is the Whites and Yellows Ministox race. Ministox drivers are between 10 and 16 years of age and like the rest of the stockcar drivers work up through there roof colour grades. With White being a new comer / novice up to a Red roof being most sucessfull. Silver denotes the previous seasons Points Champion. The rest of the meeting will be made up of Formula 2’s, Bangers, and Production Rods as well as a full field of Ministox drivers during the evening.

Throughout the season drivers and teams from the UK and further a field are welcomed over to race at Onchan.
The Formula 2 Manx Open Championship attracts visiting drivers every July to compete with locals, the top point scoring driver over the three meetings is awarded the replica Sword of State trophy.
Each year we welcome back the National Ministox. Again these are young kids who legally can not drive or even begin to drive on public roads in the UK but when you see them hurtling around the track you would think they were adults behind the wheel. The National Mini’s hold one of their Championship point meetings here and we welcome them back each year. This years National Ministox TT takes place in August.

There is plenty of seating available with two covered grandstands as well as concrete terracing and grassed viewing area. You can purchase hot food and drinks from our purpose built catering unit and sit back and relax and enjoy the evening’s entertainment. 

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to Hogg Rescue and the St John Ambulance who offer medical first aid cover on and off the track and without them we would be un able to hold a race meeting. Also a big Thank you to the flag men and track side marshals and raceway staff who assist with the safety of drivers and spectators each week.

On that note we hope you enjoy the entertainment at Onchan Raceway and look forward to seeing you .
