Hi all of the above.
Now I know there is a system on this site to put yourself on the world map, but I also know that not everybody does so... How about ALL the UK folks put themselves on this thread, and indicate whether they;
a) are interested watchers
b) started but not made much progress
c) Started and slowly moving forward
d) rolling chassis
e) near finished
f) ready to go.

Reason is that I arrive in the country in a few months and need to decide whether to bring my CKs with me, and also that I have already had contact with a couple of venues, both supportive but if there is only me that would be pretty stupid.

Could be a bit farcical if there were only 2!

If something as popular as Formula 1 can run a race with only 6 cars (and that was farcical) I feel certain we can get away with two, goodness knows we would probably have more overtaking. Besides Gypo could at a push, push his round the track a la Nigel Mansel.

Do you or anybody know anything about the commercial company in the UK that was supposedly building them. A flurry of posts a year or two back, then nothing more. If their publicity was true there should be in excess of 20 by now.

============================
... nobody visit this web-site with UK based professional workshop for CycleKarts?

They made soem number of them and have for sale various stages of kit-completes, looking to me very well done.* They sell a couple of CycleKarts to France, too! I think that at next spring there would be a dozen of CycleKarts in France ready to “race”, with some finished in time for Cabernet and a few in process of construction (known and unknown), including a few imported from UK... Probably that a few of them could and would go to UK for international meeting (distances are not bigger then in USA for gathering at now cult place Tieton). When mentioned France, there is closed autodrom for CycleKarts ( https://www.facebook.com/oldiesracing/videos/497291283791645/ ), known as “Oldies Racing - Retro Drivers Club”, or something like that. Maybe some team from them could appeared too? (again – professionalism?) … In Germany could exist a few dozens of almost-CycleKarts made by our member Frank - possibilites similar as with French branch? (just to find them)

Therefore, Rhys - with a couple of your CycleKarts and your energy and experience – there could be organized some "British Open Championship” for CycleKarts?

*Question stays: is professionalism good way for cyclekarting movement or not?

As with the US the professional sale is one line. Amateur another. My personal opinion is that they do not fit, in any way, shape or form with the ethos which came from the inventors of the activity/movement the Stevensons. If I were to run an event the professional karts would not be invited, nor accepted. The way I would deal with that is that it is an "invitation" event, the organiser can accept or decline at their absolute discretion, as is the case with Tieton, Vashon and a few others.
Others are welcome to see it differently, I said it's my opinion, doesn't mean I am right nor wrong.

Rhys,
The same opinion as is mine, but mine isn't relevant, your is!
(I will not build Ck and for sure not organised CK-meeting)

Ciao,
Zoran

P.S.: Anyway - you could gathered 10 amateurs, maybe of international profile (in spite of Brexit) - which isn't small number!
Stevensons were something around that number all the time? (and have nice joy and fun without serious racing and competition in any way)
