Go-kart Pan-island Grand Prix

The Go-kart Pan-island Grand Prix, from Sonic Boom #6.

The Go-kart Pan-island Grand Prix is an event that appears in the Sonic Boom comic series published by Archie Comics. It was a go-kart racing competition held by and sponsored by Dr. Eggman. Unbeknownst to most, it was a trap of Eggman's to capture Team Sonic's bio-data for Project Hodge Podge. While Eggman got his data, Sonic the Hedgehog won the Grand Prix.


The Go-kart Pan-island Grand Prix is a competition where the participants race each other exclusively with go-karts. The race starts out in the heart of the Village on Seaside Island and goes around the island. To ensure supposed fair-play, there is a set of rules that each racer must follow:

  • No robots[1]
  • No weapons[1]
  • No powers (such as super speed, super strength, flight etc.)[1]


Archie Comics

Dr. Eggman got the inspiration for the Go-kart Pan-island Grand Prix when Comedy Chimp wanted to invest in a go-kart.[2] Needing the bio-data from Team Sonic for Project Hodge Podge, Eggman equipped each go-kart for the race with a Bio-scanning Who-za-ma-whats-it to copy the heroes' data and convinced Team Sonic to join the race.[1]

Sonic Wins (as usual)

Sonic wins the Go-kart Pan-island Grand Prix, from Sonic Boom #7.

At the Grand Prix, the participants consisted of Team Sonic (excluding Sticks), Comedy Chimp, Dr. Eggman and his lackeys. From the start (signaled by the Fastidious Beaver), Team Sonic took the lead, but Eggman soon broke his own rules and eliminated the racers with traps while collecting his data; Amy got attacked by robot ducks, Tails rolled off a cliff while examining his go-kart, Comedy Chimp was fooled into crashing, Knuckles was blown away by Bomb Driver, and Sonic fell off a bridge into a ravine.[1] Fortunately for Sonic, he was saved by his team, whom he convinced to wait going after Eggman until he had proven he could beat the doctor fair and square. Getting back into the race, Sonic took the lead in spite of Eggman's traps, forcing Eggman to pull out his Spider-Kart and keep Sonic at bay. However, Tails, Knuckles and Amy then came in Tails' Plane and distracted Eggman while Sonic crossed the finish line. Having proven that those that play fair win, Team Sonic forced Eggman to retreat.[3]
