Glan y Gors Park
This final corner of the GYG lap is a right turn that requires a slight lift off the throttle or dab on the brakes, before turning in from a position as far left of track as you can get to, following the exit of Devils Elbow. It’s similar to the final turn at Whilton Mill, where there is a kerb on the apex but it is best avoided in order to keep the kart controlled and balanced and keep up the momentum for a good exit through the corner and over the start/finish line. It is possible to overtake into this final turn if you get a good run out of Devils Elbow and the driver in front didn’t, but this leaves you open to attack into turn 1, Club Corner, as you begin another lap of this brilliant circuit
An Introduction to Glan-y-Gors by the current lap record holder in both Heavyweight and Lightweight Sprint classes, Trevor Randall.
Glan-y-Gors (GYG) is an absolutely brilliant, big, sweeping track in North Wales – and well worth the journey. Ever since my first time there, I’ve rated it as my favourite kart track in the UK. It’s Wales’s mini-Nurburgring, the fast, sweeping turns and uphill/downhill nature combine to give the driver a fun, rollercoaster ride, on a track where the stopwatch rewards commitment in the fast corners.
