Surprise of the event was winning the trophy for Best 125cc Class 4 kart. It came straight from its last test-day with just my normal preparation for a test!

There was once a time . . . .

when old race karts were banished to the far corners of workshops and garages to become repositories of rusted, oxidised or broken parts. By 2005 people began to realise that some of these karts had made motorsport history and so the task of restoration was begun. Many people have the knowledge, skill and time to complete these restoration projects. However, in these current times there are also those who want to drive and indeed race historic karts but don’t have the time or skills to do it themselves.

This is where Mike Topp is able to help . . . .

Having completed the stunning restoration of the KR Sabre kart in 2013/4 followed by his 125cc Deavinson Sprint – Mugen Honda project, Mike is available to undertake further restorations of both class 1 and class 4 chassis.
