Re: Flooding?

Virgil,

Yes, Findley was on the national news because of flooding. No flooding in Fremont however.

The only impact this will have on THE BIG ONE is that it will once again be flooded with hundreds of the nicest people and the coolest karts in the nation.

Be there...

Re: Period Correct Aftermarket Parts?

Brake system up grades are allowed at THE BIG ONE because the safety of our guests is priority one. Skinny hard tube type tires pretty much dictate the type of tire and wheel allowed. Remember, NO sticky tires ! Swapping components as in Margay 24 series wheels, Go Power Wheels, Azuza, etc or period...

Re: 1975?

We have all seen old karts that have had roll bars, leg extensions of some sort, and even those dreaded 'seat wings' attached and the owners all claimed they ran them with these modifications back in the day. Possibly they did but its very doubtful at best that they actually did and quite frankly we...

Re: Vintage Kart Questions

Sorry Snid there will be no racing around in the parking lot at THE BIG ONE because it is prohibited for safety reasons and logistical reasons. Bottomline, if the motel reservations are any indication the event should again be HUGH and we want our guest to be safe even when walking in a full parking...

Re: Vintage Kart Questions

Your question and some others are making me think this is a left wing conspiracy. You can not re-write history. Please refer to pictures of past events to see what we run. This in no way appears to be a former racer from the 60’s……and to be honest it looks like it was made from some old shopping kar...
