In reply to # 33338 by Smoky Well, those crashes were hard to watch.
======================================
Hello, Don!
Quite right, but that was not my intention to spoil the enjoyment of Cyclekartistes - just to show what could be happened with much better cars, probably better racers in better conditions...
(consequences were strangely but happily not fatal)

Such accidents for sure could spoil any hobby, especially one with such great spirit and great persons gathered around the magnificent subject...

Common sense, knowledge and experience (personal or collectively gathered), from design and construction to use and especially the organisation of races, parades and shows...!

Regards,
Zoran

Brutal stuff.
But entirely possible.
Common sense must prevail.

... something that could be interesting for our members from the USA, that are seniors and besides a love for CycleKarts have an older love for reconstruction and recreation of classic American cars:

Maby even some hot-rods or street-rods could be realised in such clubs for pensioners?

Ciao,

Hello,
Nice metal work was shown on this website?

https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/cyclecar-build-so-cal.1081127/

Something like modern cyclecar, similar to some projects guys would do here in Custom-Kart sub-forum...

Ciao,
Zoran

Hello, there!
Some time ago we were discussing so-called "Oldies Racing" - Cyclekarts at autodrom in France.


https://www.facebook.com/pg/oldiesracing/videos/



They were based at CycleKart UK Co. design of "Stevenson Formula" as they said (professionally built): http://www.cyclekart.co.uk/
There are a few modifications for such use (protection of the rear wheels)...


Now, "Oldies Racing" uses even more modified look-a-like "CycleKarts", better for autodrom "racing" of the untrained public.
A few photos would be attached in the following message...



Are they classic/standard Cyclekarts anymore?
By construction and general layout - they are, but by a spirit - maybe not, in the first place because of professionalism (commercial business in construction and use)...
They had more side protection and some kind of roll-bars - safety measures that we discussed once - but, without seatbelts, as I could see.

Ciao,
Zoran

P.S.: Anyway, I would like to have such autodrom here in Bern, so to have a joy and pleasure of driving CycleKart, or something very near to it

... and, now: the second and the third variant of CK for "Goldies Racing" - different body and even more protection!
(pay attention to rear wheels of some karts)
It seems to me that rear structure is attached more to save engine/transmission and not so much serves as roll-bar?




The final version has operational roll-bars and seat-belts?
... and, looks quite smaller and slower?




Now, a bunch of various karts at French velodrome!



Z.

... ... minimum complications and expenses, but maximum of fun and joy!
The most basic back-yard soap-box racers?





... ... and, something at a high-tech level (gods could be the main issue):



... ... and, Latino GP:

Looks like great fun, but that is not for old guys, I don't think. (It would have been even better if they had left the music off.)

Hello, Neto!
You are quite right - only for kids and fellows, being quite daredevil-style!
For us - just watching from the second gallery...

The same is for music - no need for it, but...

Ciao,
Zoran

Some unusual karts from Thailand (maybe)!

They had fun building and driving, I had fun watching them - good enough for The PUB?
Ciao, Zoran
