Are there any Era 1/2 kart owners who are considering coming to the Bolivar Historic Grand Prix 2018?

I would especially like to see a pack of them lapping together to excite the crowd, making the noise only they can make - tails hanging out around the sweeper.
If you have one (or more), are you able to come along and join the fun?

I may have the Velsa Spitfire, 200cc Villiers, running by then. I think it will be loud, maybe not so fast? :)

Certainly will, Long Legs, and Old age don't help getting in and out and the "Porch" should help tremendously.

That little front porch will make life more comfortable.

Remember this? Bought from a farm shed in Wagga , picked up when we were at Grenfell last year.

Now maybe I am trying to turn a silk purse out of a sows ear (That's how the old saying goes?) BUT, Twin Victas? anybody got a spare Victa?

Could be FUN????

Shell, ADVANCE Racing M I have used in all my motors.

16:1 Ratio, and never really had any problems that were "Oil" Based.

Hi all,

I was thinking of trying some castor instead of full synth in the next kart. Thoughts about this in freshened up old mower engines ? Chippo ? And what about the Mc10 ? Also, how clean do they need to be of one before switching to another ?

TIA, David.

Comment by Ross CHIPPERFIELD on Friday

Yes he had to gear it right down as it was so fast in practice at Newcastle the tyres were growing off the rims   LOL I guess I had better shut up as we have not finished a meeting for a while

Comment by David Slade on Thursday

Mower men. Does my sprocket look big in this ? lol.
