About Us

Coles Racing have been competing at the highest level of British & European karting for over two decades.

Coles Racing was set up by Adrian Coles, a character with countless years of experience in the karting and motorsport scene. Adrian started karting in 1979 at the tender age of 9 at the Dunkeswell Kart Circuit.
He graduated into single seater racing in 1989, racing alongside a young David Coulthard.

Adrian set up Coles Racing in 1991, running people in the 100 Junior and Senior Britain Class, before moving into the TKM categories. Adrian himself, still racing at the time, achieved 4th overall in the British TKM Championship in 1998, before winning the title in 1999.
At the end of the year 2000, Adrian stopped racing to concentrate on running the Race Team.

In 2002, Adrian first started running the team under the Coles Racing Team Awning, running drivers in the Super One and Stars of Tomorrow Championships.

Over the years Adrian has worked with many drivers who are still known around the paddock today, such as Dan Hazlewood of Fusion Motorsport, David Bellchambers of Next-Gen Motorsport and Dan Holland of Dan Holland Racing.

Coles Racing success & looking to the future

Coles Racing took victory in the 2009 Rotax Winter Cup with Ed Brand in Junior Rotax.  James Singleton rounded off the year by taking 3rd place and 4th place overall in the 2009 Formula Kart Stars (FKS) Mini Max Championship and Super One Series respectively.

2011 saw further accolades for Coles Racing, as James Singleton won the Junior Rotax FKS Championship and took 3rd overal in the Junior Rotax Euro Challenge. 2012 provided Coles Racing with another FKS title after Sam Ward took the Rotax Max Championship.

2014 saw Coles Racing's Alex Quinn take the Super One British Mini Max Championship to wire, narrowly missing out on the title, whilst Sam Pooley became the Kartmasters GP Winner in a Coles Racing 1-2.

Coles Racing expand the team heavily in 2015, across all Rotax Classes. Season highlights include Zak Fulk taking 4th overall in the British Championship for Junior Rotax, also taking victory in the 3rd round of the Rotax Euro Challenge at Wackersdorf.

At the tail end of 2015, Coles Racing launched their X30 Racing Team with immediate success, showing strongly right from the off.
Oliver York won the 2016 LGM Junior X30 Championship for the team and then Tyler Chesterton dominated Junior Rotax in 2017 to become British Champion.

Last season saw the team become double British Champions, winning the Junior Rotax British Championship with James Lowther and also winning Minimax with Myles Barthorpe.

Coles Racing will be participating in both Rotax and X30 Classes for the 2019 campaign, in the British Kart Championships.
