Battle at the Beach Go-Kart Races

For the first time ever, Rok Cup USA makes its way to the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Drivers and racing teams from across the country and as far away as Europe made the trip down to Finishline on Beach Boulevard in Biloxi to compete in the three day event.

The circuit features age groups that start as young as nine years old and go all the way up to a ‘masters’ group.

Rok USA has events across the world held throughout the year and have alumni in multiple different professional racing organizations. Ron Ebersole with Rok Cup USA said, “Just over the weekend, last weekend, Memorial Day Weekend, it was the Indianapolis 500. Several of these guys knew nine to 11 of those drivers who started out racing go-karts with us. Now they’re already at the pinnacle of their careers, racing at the highest level in Indy car.”

If you’re interested in checking out some of the races, admission to the event is just $10 for the weekend.
