    By cycle Karts, do you mean you pedal them?
    If so, that would be a fun form of exercise.

    Its size made me think of the Lotus Seven used by Patrick McGoohan in 'The Prisoner'.

    I loved the era of open wheeler racing - the cars were so beautiful.
    Thanks.

    Hi Barry,
    The answer to that would be "Nope"...
    The reasons being: -
    1: that I had only just been thought of...
    2: my parents didn't have a TV & so, even as a baby, I wouldn't have been exposed.

    Magnificent photos though = Me
