I have given up. I spoke to the ma at GX tuning place and he has put me straight.
There is no chance of the car running at Grimsthorpe this weekend but I will bring it to help with the numbers and put it on static display.

Huge thanks to everyone who helped make Grimsthorpe a grand day out:  Graham A and Simon for the site visit and reviewing documentation, Andy and Jim for period looking chairs with CKGB logos, Graham H for the great start and finish banners, Graham A for the marshals flags, Simon for the road pins to help keep the crowds at bay, Chris L for printing the leaflets, Marek for lots of things including photographs and videos,  everyone who helped set up and tear down the barriers, bales, tents and  for all the vintage stuff people brought to make the garage tent look more interesting.   Thanks to everyone for being generous with their time with all the people who wanted to know more about cycleKarts.  Plus, of course, for keeping the day safe.

WOW what a spiffing day we all had. The venue and the weather was amazing. Nice to see Simon's new kart that is a work of art, looking forward to seeing the finished article. Thanks to everyone for making it so much fun. ESPECIALLY Stefan for all the hard work. The garage tent was a great success.      PS   Sorry Graham H I seem have taken credit for something that you did.   Thanks again Lewis and I had a BRILLIANT day. Graham A.

What great day out after a bit of a thrash ( for me ) to "git er' done ". First fire up and drive on Friday afternoon revealed a couple of issues, flooding carb sorted with Jims help and steering going over centre ...eeeekk.....interesting ! Again an easy fix welding in a stop.
Saturday dawned chilly but soon warmed up into perfect weather , all those question marks in my head , suspension collapse ? CVT/chain clearance ? braking, will it work ? dissolved away after the first couple of runs up the hill, then the drag racer element kicked in and I went for it full throttle, a bit light and lively on the front but in control up to the finish flat out, hard on the brakes and swing into the pits. No drama, just FUN.
This was my first meet driving my own car and just have to say how welcoming everyone was , its not just the cars, its the people too !

 Hi, from your post you must be Simon Glenn, with the Maserati CT8.
Now that you're done with building your first cyclekart, welcome to the fun of driving!!

I'm Carlos, I'm the guy who figured out a formula in which we can play a world wide fun game with our cyclekarts: the CKWC - Cyclekart World Championship.

I have the results provided by Stefan (thanks Stefan!!), but I'm missing some info on your kart and yourself.
What is your cyclekart number?
What engine is in your cyclekart?
Are you British?

BTW, although you have joined in a bit late in the game to factor in individually (in the Cyclekarts and drivers charts), you may enjoy the fact that your result was key for Maserati to maintain the lead in the "Marques" Championship. If you had not been at the Grimsthorpe event, Maserati would have been passed by Austin (which also had moved further up the chart, thanks to Chris Loader's result).
Thanks to you, Maserati still tops the Marques chart, now ahead of Austin by 7.5 pts.

Cheers!!!
