The Emirates Group Karting Club (EGKC) was formed by a few passionate petrol-heads working for Emirates Airlines in early 2011.
After taking part in a few 24-hour endurance races and coming in a very respectable 2nd place in the Corporate Category in the NFM 24 hr endurance race in 2009, it was decided that an Emirates Airlines karting club should be formed which would be open to all Emirates Group employees and their immediate family.
Since its inception, the EGKC has since successfully run 10 full seasons of the EGKC championship. Season 11 is now underway and the in-house championship is open to all employees of the Emirates Group and their dependents.
The EGKC was ranked #1 in the UAE and #5 in the world in the Sodi World Series Endurance Category in 2019 and qualified for the 2020 World Finals.
