I'd love to get into the retro karting scene... cheap motorsport.

Looked a hoot last time I looked at it...

You'd get a kart easily in the boot of that german barge of yours...


The perfect example of a contradiction of terms. Cheap motorsport? No such thing. :wink:

I raced 100cc karts in my 30's (a long time ago now) :oops:. I started off just getting one to muck about on a track but soon "needed" a licence to race. That led to "needing" another set of tyres, and another set, a spare engine, and another one, wet tyres and a spare set, another better carb and a spare carb, a spare helmet, loads of spare wheels, hubs, rear axles, etc................................

You see where this is going, loads of "I need" stuff and empty pockets. :shock:

a great way to waste money and time


This. And anodizing. Could even pay for itself if you're any good!

The challenge of a part time job to soak up a few extra hours and give you more cash monies to fund your new hobby of underwater horse riding.
