"Hi all Is the Numerkah Vintage meeting on CMS says it is but there is no info available from the Goulburn Valley Kart club, Kartbook or Facebook. We are going but we may be a bit lonely. Very strange."

"Allan King i guess sitting behind it being sprayed with rubber & alcohol in a race at Granville Kart track means it did race. It was awesome.  Once again Juddy had better take plenty of brave pills when he gets it tuned. "

"Hi Guys  This is the rule in the current rule book that definitely allows the Koenig to run: b) Only Karts that have been previously permitted for competition in Australia by KA and that have been removed from the KA Rules for a minimum of 15…"

"Mocco Can't argue with that but the Koenig did exist/race in 200cc or even illegally at 250cc who knows, but whatever form it was raced in Juddy has replicated it & even if it is 210cc or 250cc what does it matter, who is it going to beat…"

"Mocco I  might also add that we are demonstrating our vintage karts to show how they used to go. "

Robert Wanless commented on Mike Best's group VINTAGE & HISTORIC KARTS
"Well Mocco the fact of the matter is that it did race wheather it was 200cc or whatever it was does not erase the fact that it was raced in the period so  Juddy's replica is a brilliant effort to relive that era.  Have you heard it…"

"Don I hear they have a nice vintage karting movement on Manus island & I am sure your passport will be valid there. We will be bringing our McCulloch Mc102a rotary factory prototype this year so all those Victa's should look out. Hehe"

Hi Robert,I just saw your Mac photo,I have a Mac as well with carbs the same,where did you get any parts for them from local or imported?

I have a Dart kart[Darcy kart] that I  raced at Granville and Londonderry in limited weight.

We got our parts from Darcy and Pat Peck at Newtown this kart I brought from Rueben Greentree.

Hope you maybe able to help me.
