In the pipeline (4)

Well, what have we got here, then? One of our eagle-eyed racers came across this creation on YouTube, and a hugely impressive piece of engineering it is. We don't know the gentleman responsible for it, but he name-checks us – hope we get to see it in real life, real soon!

Here's some more pictures from his film, (below) or you can see the whole thing for yourselves at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8RN4DFAndU

Happy New Year

Well, there's no race this January but there's plenty going on behind the scenes.

We are gradually closing the gap between races taking place and films being posted (and blog updates going out).

Coming up in the next month are films for Races 37, 38 and 39. And still more carts are in the pipeline, we'll be keeping you up to date with these too...

Here's a little teaser from Race 39 – say hello to "Liddle Pig" and "Toecutter"...

In the pipeline (3)

From Mr Walsh:-

"Here is another sketch of light weight cart that is in the pipeline as well.

It has wheel chair wheels I had Charlie machine for bigger bearings and disc brakes on rear. He machined up some front steering components too. Haven't any pics of real thing yet. Keep ya posted..."
