The best kart racers from all over Ireland take to the track at Nutts Corner today and tomorrow for Ulster's biggest meeting – the Irish Grand Prix.

Each year the Ulster Karting Club host the event at the Co Antrim venue as the sport's finest battle it out for the GP Plate.

Some of the best racing this season has been in the Senior Max class with Dollingstown's Daniel Conlon, Derek Wilson of Portadown and Douglas Reid from Ballynahinch stepping up their bids at Nutts Corner this weekend.

Carrickfergus racer Robert Devenney has been the dominant force in the World Formula class, winning the majority of races for a strong lead in the championship.

Paul Prentice from Moira, Peter Dornan of Stoneyford and Dundrod's Neville Bell will take the fight to Devenney.

In the Cadet class, Sé Óg Martin, Philip Patton, Shay Burns and Thomas Edgar will all be on a mission to take home the GP Plate.

The Mini Max class sees the likes of Jack McGaughey from Glenavy, Hillsborough's Daniel Harper and Sam McDonnell of Coleraine battling it out.

In the Division 1 250cc, 2013 champion and Irish GP winner Liam Fox is a strong contender.
