I was delighted to read the article on the Oxford University Motor Drivers' Club (OT 27.2), and to note its recent success in kart racing. Back in the '60s, I was a club member, with meetings held at St Cat's and Keble.

As the article says, the Club was not involved with kart racing then, but I was, racing karts with 200cc Spanish Bultaco engines and five speed gearboxes, all over the country, with a sixth and two fourth places in that class at the British Championships between 1966 and 1970.

My racing was interrupted by a medical career, but I kept two of those karts, and in retirement I now run them in Historic Kart Club events.
