Desperate to enter the Gravity Grand Prix but left it too late to build a cart? No need to despair – we might have just what you need…
Keith Lee got in touch from Burgess Hill to say he had an unwanted cart which needs “a bit of finishing off” and kindly offered it to anyone who wanted to enter it in the Reach Valley Gravity Grand Prix. We thought this was too good an offer to turn down so we said “Yes please” and it arrived in Glynde this morning.
A quick inspection revealed that it would need the addition of some brakes, a steering wheel (or handle bars) and a seat – none of which should be too difficult or expensive. If you’re interested and would like to have a closer look please get in touch ASAP.
Many thanks to Keith.
If you are interested, please contact us via email: email@example.com or telephone: 01273 858227

Team CB Winter & Sons have shared a preview of their gravity cart, made completely from recycled materials, here’s some pics;
Team name & sponsor: C. B. Winter & Sons.
Drivers: Anthony Winter & Andrew Small.
Interesting Fact about cart: Made completely out of recycled materials.
Thanks to: Light Brothers for donating materials.
Only a few more days to enter, so remember to get your entry form back to us if you haven’t sent it already.
If anyone still needs some wheels for their cart we’ve been offered a couple of Mountain Board trucks.
The axles are only 15″ (380mm) long so you may have to lengthen or replace that.
The wheels have five spokes and are made of seemingly strong plastic. The bearings are free running.
The tyres are marked Runner 200×50, inflate to 50psi although only one of them holds air at the moment… That one is 8″ (200mm) in diameter & 2″ (50mm) wide when inflated.
If anyone can use them please get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thanks to Siobhan (& Dominic).
If you need some inspiration, soapboxing racing is on Dave now until 8pm so make sure you tune in!
