Old Vintage Karts Forum Backup Copy   This is the link to the old vintage karts forum. We made a static copy of it about 9 months before it Crashed for good. We've given a copy to Kevin to redo the forum but that didn't work out. So Now We're hosting and posting the copy Brian made for the information in it. Sadly there's no way to make it searchable right now. as time passes we'll repost the info in the live forum so all the great posts from our members is searchable again.

Member reminiscences about karting early years
This section is for every member of vintage karting.we felt this section should be added while we still have access to the people who literally created racing karts. In here you'll find a living history of guys who were "there when it started" all the way though to stuff from yesterday. we encourage each member to put as much history of their karting careers as they would care to share.

Member Entries
This page is for member entries. Each Member entering a kart needs to start their own thread. title it my entry, your name and the kart manufacturer and class you are competing in. We will be accepting entries starting Jan 20th through March 7th. That way nobody can say they didn't have enough time to get started!!! Each month we'll need more pix either of the work done or the events the kart went to as an operational restoration.
