The first Karting races are organised in Italy (Turin, Vallelunga, Grosseto and Monza), in Germany (Wiesbaden), in Denmark (Naerum stadion on dirt tracks and Roskilde on asphalt), in Belgium (28 February, on the Heysel Esplanade in Brussels), in the Netherlands (Zandvoort and Hoensbroek), in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (Findel airport), in Ireland (TEK Dairy), in Spain (Barcelona), in Switzerland and in Poland (Stadion Czestochowa). The first Karting meeting in Portugal is held in December (Amadora), but the first official Portuguese race takes place in February 1961 at Lisbon, where the spectators, with their entrance tickets, are given earplugs so that they can withstand the noise of the 41 karts at the start!

The Go Kart Club of America organises again a “World Championship” in Nassau, Bahamas; it is won by the young Bobby Allen (17 years old).
