Three years ago today, at a wet Clay Pigeon Raceway (some things never change), we rented a 2-stroke kart for the day. This was to see a) if Junior definitely enjoyed it and b) if I could manage push starting a direct drive engine. Junior was very slow and our host advised that it might be better to stay in arrive/drive karting for another year! £14,513 later… there are times I wish I had heeded that advice!!!
