Classic Car Show Birmingham (NEC) 2016

Post by briansa3 »

Hi all

We had a great show and as usual we were kept busy all three days and the enthusiasm from the visitors amazing. The stories from past karters were really interesting and I think we helped the majority of people with their queries. These included a large number who wanted to start bambino karting with their children!
We spoke to people from Holland (so the Dutch "histokarters" will get a new member!), South Africa, Italy, and numerous from Ireland.

Our patron and Motor sport personality, Barry William paid us a visit in Friday an told us about his latest exploits.

our six karts covered the 1960 to 1980 period with the early kart attracting more that the later "muscle" karts! A one minute clip of our stand and kart is on you tube.

I mentioned that I thought we had managed to sort most of the queries but we have some to follow up. We will get back to you but if you think that we have forgotten us please get in touch.

The UK kart show (kartmania) is on at Silverstone over 26/27th November where will have a large stand, all other the historic and modern kart clubs will be there so it is a good place to get some more information and perhaps find a kart.
