Tieton Grand Prix

  • Mighty Tieton Warehouse 608 Wisconsin Avenue Tieton, WA, 98947 United States

Make way for hand-crafted cyclekarts racing and parading around Tieton. The races go from 10 - 4 and are best viewed from the Tieton City Park. Parking is available at the Mighty Tieton Warehouse at 608 Wisconsin Ave

The 24 driving teams come from as far away as New Zealand to participate in the annual event. The cars must be handmade using Honda GX200 engines and draw clear design inspiration from the open wheel race cars from the early 1900s. Participants work on their cars all year, excitedly awaiting the largest gathering of cyclekarts in the world. No two cars are alike, with designs often taking on the personality of its builder. Each one is about 8’ long, weighing between 250 to 300 pounds, with steel chassis and wood or aluminum bodies.
