You think it needs some Hawaiian flowers and a "mystery machine" log on it Stefan?  ;D ;D ;D

Trailer canopy now ready for road testing. Think that is wise before heading down the M6 with it.
Fingers crossed 🤞

Horses for courses Nick, and across the web differing opinions exist. Sprockets for 219 tend to be smaller in diameter for a given tooth number and the chain runs smoother but is potentially weaker than a larger pitch chain. See this article...
420 chain is for motorcycle applications up to about 125cc usually, so, arguably, as we use a similar size wheel and have a similar torque transfer as a 125 to it, it should work out fine.
If you hold store in the article I sent you above, and I am not sure I do, then 219 should break more readily. I have not heard of a 219 chain breaking on any of the cyclekarts so far.
This probably has you no wiser  ;D
Also this...

Looks like we have a show with at least four cyclekarts! Should be good static or mobile. I have de-pilled the tweed jacket, polished my helmet and packed the funky trunk into the boot of the tow car. I hope that the overalls still fit.
Any news back from VSCC greatly appreciated.

Getting things ship shape for Silverstone, Slippery Jim rides again!
The canopy is still in need of paint, the door hanging and all the fasteners securing so that will have to be at a future event.

Thanks Stefan, on the Silverstone website, it looks like the historic testing sessions are on the Friday afternoon. As we are not testing, it looks like from this that it will be a possibility. There seems to be no way of connecting to an actual human being on the Silverstone site to verify this though. A contact for the VSCC might yield an answer?

I will be stopping the night before at the Paisely Pear Stefan, I guess that dropping the cyclekart off will be in the morning? or is there access the night before?

Unless you are lucky Stefan, and a clothes peg yields the perfect one, it might be your best shot.  :)
