It is that time of year again and I have constructed a new cart to race down hill in order to raise money for The Air Ambulance.
My inspiration has come from a bird house that is being used to house a security camera…. Okay it is one that I designed and it sits at the end of my drive…
Anyhow the idea was to build a cart that looked like a birdhouse. You may know that I have modified a go-kark, removing the engine, adding bigger wheels and a metal frame, which has been used to build the Yellow submarine and The Crimson Haybailer in previous years.
So I set about building a frame which looked like this:
You will notice that it is about 3.5m high and about 1.0m wide and attached to the go-kart.
Once you have added the cladding and painted it it looks like this: (That is a Saab convertible behind it)
From the driving position you will get a view that looks like this:
So as you can see, visibility is a little limited…
If you would like to help me raise money for the charity please give generously at this site: www.justgiving.com/mikemather and all funds will go directly to the charity The Air Ambulance….
I am hoping that I do not crash but I somehow expect that the dimensions of this cart have made that a forgone conclusion!
