Vintage Karting Event at NCMP - June 18-20, 2009
Dual Rear Engine class is featured in this video. Participants included
Lake Speed, Jeff Brown, Craig Bennet, Jim Walter, Dick Teal, Bill
McCormack, Terry Ives, Louie Figone, George Sellon ... Watch some of the
best US kart drivers from the 60s & 70s in action! Many of these drivers
are former multi-time Grandnational champions, kart manufacturer team
drivers, and of course Lake Speed is America's ONLY World Championship
winning kart driver (1978).
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

Homemade Go-Kart And Mini-Bike (GoPro & Rollover)
6.5 Hp Go-Kart and 5.5Hp Mini-Bike
If you want to see some good action, take a look at our two-part "Thrills
And Spills" video!
*Note: The steering column was not locked into place, therefore, you will
notice Dan veering off course without steering on some occasions. Also, he
is 6'3" tall, (I'm 5'7") which is why he looks a bit big for the kart!
If you have any questions about the Kart, please follow the link at the end
of the video. If you have questions after that, then fire away! They are
not for sale... unless you give me obscene amounts of money.
16 HP SICK Go Kart
Decided to swap my little 5.5HP Honda engine for a 16HP vanguard twin
cylinder Briggs and Stratton. All of this took basically a night and a day.
Needs a better pull start, and a muffler of course... which will increase
speed. Pretty good overall since it was sitting on a shelf for over a year.
