I started in Karting in 1959 running around Thruxton in a Phantom Kart and a 160cc Villiers engine with centrifugal clutch and a rope for a starter, raced from then to 1969, with Get Kart with Twin Clintons, JLO 101s, McCulloch MC20,s and 30's then a Buckler Villiers, Shrike Greeves, Keele Bultaco, Barlotti twin Parilla's, Barlotti Bultaco. Most of this time with my Sister Jenny. Then we went off rallying for a while. Came back into Karting in 1982 with my son Adam and me as the spanner man in Juniors with a Zip Hewland, Zip 125 Rotax and Zip Formula E Rotax. Then on to run our own Formula Ford Team until 1988. We were tempted back to Karting at Rowrah in August 2009 and were hooked again and into Historic Karting. Class 1 at the moment.
