Finished Projects

Hi John 

Just wanted to say thank you for the go kart parts that you have supplied, and to show you the results.

I bought a set from you last year and built the Defender for a soap box race at my daughter’s school.

Had to go one better this year, so bought a second set and added the horse trailer!

Hope you like it,

Matt Durrands

Hi John,
What a cracking night we had..!!! photos from last nights extravaganza – what a way to end the Summer term for Scouts!!
I am proud to announce that the two go karts made by my lot, Cherokee Thunder and Cherokee Flyer, won hands down – both surviving the evening, running the fastest and going the furthest from launch.
Thanks again for being the inspiration for such a great evening.
 Kind regards Stuart Coggan.



I have attached pictures of the completed  Tornado Go-karts. The seats have been positioned forward to accommodate the sizes of the grandchildren.

Hi John
The wheels and axles arrived yesterday to great applause.
Regards and Thanks Sean


Hi John, 
Just to say how much my Grandsons have enjoyed building and playing on the go-kart that we built using the wheels and axles that I was able to obtain from you. We had been looking round for ages for suitable wheels, on Ebay and boot sales and when I found your website all our problems were solved - thanks very much.

John I thought you might like to know that your wheels have been put to good use. As far as I know, not a single `Silver Cross' has been left wheel-less on bricks - nor a six inch nail bent in its cause! Our Grandchildren 1 & 3 years love it

 Best wishes Paul.


Hi John
'Malaysia one' is finished, so as promised heres some shots. hope you like it cheers & thanks for the wheels & axles

Hi John, 
Please find attached photos of our completed go-karts. These were the kid's bank-holiday projects and they had a great time. I built the initial frames and then they were able to recycle anything in the house they could find to make the rest of the vehicles. 
As you can see, some old kitchen chairs, dustbins, a few bits of MDF were all found and used. My daughter Chloe, Decopatched her car with pretty paper, while my son, Ben, completed his design with two cans of spray paint. We hope you like them and we'd recommend the activity to any families for any wet bank-holiday! 
Many thanks the great wheels, they are really fantastic and the kids are speeding down the local hills this morning! 
Kind regards 
Jamie. Chippenham Wiltshire.


Hi John 
As promised please find attached photos of Kieron & his Go-Kart, and would like to say how much fun we had making the kart and thank you for the easy to follow instructions, as well as the wheels and axles! Kieron & friends have had great fun playing on it so far!
Best regards Adrian & Kieron.

Dear John
I though you might be interested in the cartie I made, using your wheels and brake, for my daughter. I had always promised to make her one, but never alas got round to it. That is until four weeks ago when I presented her with it on her wedding day – only 20 years too late! she seemed very pleased with it. 
Thanks Best wishes. Ian Watson


Hi John,
It took 18 10 and 11 year olds 1 hour and 15 minutes to put together the Basic kart. They got no direct help from any adult in the room only guidance through questioning, if stuck. We then took the kart on to the playground, I have to say I haven't seen my class so excited - they couldn't wait to get on it and get going! Thank you again for such a quality kit if any of my wider colleagues, who work in bigger schools, ever want to make a Kart, I will pass on to them, your details. Truly Brilliant!
Regards Nigel Stewart

Hello John
It ended up just right, my grand-son phoned me last night, I had it delivered yesterday, he said it was really quick. He had a pair of his Dad’s overalls on, and his bicycle helmet, he said he felt like a Formula 1 driver.
Your equipment for these is great. Regards Les.

All very pleased with the GT go-cart, & according to my son, it is 'miles faster  than any others in the go-cart club at school'!

Hi Go Kart Daddy many thanks for our new alloy kart wheels almost ready to race at Goodwood this year at the Supream box kart championship for cub scouts. Thanks Graham Payne

Teddington RNLI entered a charity pram race with your wheels and axle kit. Many thanks Matthew Allchurch

Just wanted to say thanks for all the advice - the kit was amazingly easy to put together, and we have an 11 year old boy (who has wanted to build a go kart for years now, but we have never gotten around to it...) who is very happy indeed!!

Hi John - long time sorry, forgot to send you pictures of the 'finished article'
Raced it today for the first time at Welton! So I wanted it to be completely wood but 
I needed decent brakes so I incorporated a mobility frame with its brakes into the design
Thanks Reuben

Richard from Birmingham Trail and BoxKart go karts... with an excellent custom paint job.

Hi John:
Thanks for the information, a great help.  I built the cart for a friend (for his grandsons) and will be handing it over in the coming week.  Just wanted to be sure I could guide him on the tyres.  I will be sorry to loose the kart, it really is stunning with these wheels, no question!
With best wishes


Hello John,
Delivery arrived, thanks for swift work on that. Go Kart fixed, son very happy. Thought you might like to see a couple of photos in Greenwich Park, London.
Cheers, Jon Hicks

Dear Go Kart Daddy,

Thanks again.
