Twin Engined Karts from days gone by

HOME            Slide show of restored Twins

Some of the twin engined "beasts". 

Any information on these karts or more photos - especially originals from their racing days - would be welcome.


Built by Peter Fredericks and Jack & Brad Parker of the Queensland Kart Centre

Very fast on the straights but apparently a handful on the corners

Twin Komet K55 reeds. Unfortunately the kart is no more. It was cut up and thrown away.

Greg Brewer's first twin was a Bug Black Widow with 2x Komet K55 reeds.

This combo was quick enough to qualify and finish 3rd in either the 1981 or 1982 Victorian Open Championships - can anyone confirm the exact year, behind Alan Brown (Blow/ 2 x Parilla Rotaries) Doc Pearson (Demon/ 2 x DAP Rotaries)

Current whereabouts is unknown

Demon X 2x DAP TT74.

Greg moved on to a Demon X with DAP motors

Twin DAP T72s

Greg does not know where the Demon is either so he has started work on recreating it.
