Welcome to CycleKarts GB

CK group at Stretton

 

CycleKarts are compact, lightweight sports machines, home and hand-made by their drivers. They use simple go-kart components to provide low-cost fun. The term cyclekarts originated in the USA in the 90’s but people have been building small copies of vehicles since the dawn of motoring.

 

As a driving machine, the CycleKart formula loosely limits certain aspects of the cars to maintain good sporting performance without jeopardising the lighthearted nature of these machines and the people who build them.

 

The inspiration for the design of each individual CycleKart derives from the heady and innovative racing cars of the pre-war period. Today’s CycleKart builders are passionate about the heritage of their chosen historic car and the detail of their modern copy.  However, this is not an elitist hobby; basic DIY skills are all that is required to get started and members of the group are always willing to provide encouragement and technical support.

 

CycleKarts GB is the forum for CycleKarting in the UK and aims to offer a warm welcome, support and information to builders.
