Not normally a BEC fan but i think i could make an exception. Interestingly it was designed and built by a couple of schoolboys in 1929. If you fancy more of the same you might want to take a look HERE but be prepared for a long read cos there's 255 pages to wade through.

Is that John Bolsters 'Bloody Mary'? I saw it many years ago and thought it was wonderfully bonkers.





Phoned the local ramblers club today, but the bloke who answered just
went on and on.

Hmmmmm - that would make a great basis for a race series, something between karting and car racing.

A little more info on Bloody Mary HERE. Some excellent quotes.

I think they already race cyclekarts although seems to be more of a trials type event. I did have some links but appear to have lost them. They were all found via THIS THREAD or via a link of a link from there.

Its really annoying as I found a really helpful UK site that gave instuctions on how to build them and where to buy the parts and how to convert honda c90 wheels for car use.

Found the LINK for the parts catalog.

I'm sure someone on here was into cyclekarts. They look like a huge amount of fun, but sadly nowhere near me to race them.

Having a place to use it is the age old problem.

I suppose if a handful of people made them and turned up at the same hillclimb/sprint to enter any class it would fit into, you'd have a mini competition going, or ask a kart circuit to give you some time for a race.
