The Vintage Karting Association (vkavintagekarting.com) defines demonstration racing class guidelines. Karts typically run in this Dual Rear class are from the 1964-1972 period with two engines mounting in the rear behind the driver. The Engines of the period were industrial based 2-strokes purpose built for kart racing, manufacturers included: McCulloch, West Bend, Power Products, Homelite ... The motors were fully modified, usually running at least 2 methanol burning carbs. The starting method of the period was usually an electric fan belt starter and 2-3 people helping get the temperamental motors come to life. While kart handling is poor by modern standards, top speed is similar to modern 125cc sprint shifter karts. This video contains segments shot at 300fps for slow motion playback. ... more event coverage, videos, photos can be seen at the Vintage Karting Association website http://vkavintagekarting.com , and at the VintagePowerSport website: http://vintagepowersport.com/?page_id=513
