I have added the 1966 Shenington 6Hr pictures and will do some editing soon, I won’t ask for any help with names, you can’t get new Plumbs on the National Health just yet, fingers crossed the government will do the planned “Fanny’s for Plumbs Exchange” later in the year, I believe Jim-Bob Girl-Pants as had his name down for quite a while.
The new scanner is great and I have re-scanned the Shenington/British Championships negatives and added them to Great British Events, I hope I have managed to get the pictures sorted in to there correct files, I will make a start on the 66/67 negative tonight and add them as soon as.
I would like to apologise to all the overseas visitors with regards to the content of this blog which is aimed at the UK historic Karter’s (if there are any) and the watermarking of the new photos, I know this spoils the experience for many visitors unfortunately my website receives the unwelcome attention of the thieves of the British historic karting scene AKA “The Slugs” those spineless, slimy, benefits fiddlers and chocolate star collecting arseholes most of whom are away this weekend getting their lips smothered in little Swiss and Italian chocolate stars.
It is particularly upsetting when you consider that they have spent their members’ money on a 50% share of the Karting Magazine photographic archive but are just too lazy to scan them finding it much easier to help themselves to mine (Thieving tossers that they are, they have also stolen money from me and refuse to return it) well when you have a secretary that doesn’t get out of bed until 1pm and exaggerates an illness in order to claim benefits and get the British tax payer to pay his mortgage what can you expect, nothing but a shower of thieving toe-rags.
I do have a lot to say about your club and race series but why help them, their focus is now on Classic Plastic, vintage and historic karting will just have to be happy with a back seat as money is the main focus of attention with this shower of buffoons and I want to use this blog to bring you news of site updates and photographic updates which I am sure is why this is the most popular Historic Karting website on the net.
I now have a notification with regards web site updates, I intend to give the site a bit of a refresher, nothing to drastic just a new front page with new photos, all the old photos will be moved to appropriate album and the KART A/Z will have four pages as I have a lot more pictures of karts to add and in its present form is taking too long to load and the same may happen to the engine section.
I have thousands of pictures to add but if you would like to see your own collection added to the site please send them in and it will be done, all photos and negative are returned within days of receiving them complete with a CD/DVD of photos, negatives and films, it’s your history so let’s see it, no other site is offering this service free of charge so come on don’t be shy give us a butchers of what you have.
Other changes will be a new site membership and the forum will go, this is because the forum membership has been abused with members allowing others (the Slugs) to use their log-in details.
New site membership will allow just one IP address to be used and you will have to use your real names when applying for membership, the advantages for site members will be pages that non-members won’t see, all this will take a while but I think you will find it well worth waiting for.
A Bit of News
On closer inspection of the file containing the 1963 Shenington 6Hr pictures in Old Pictures 4 revealed that they are in fact photos of the 1964 Shenington 6Hr and the 1964 British Championships, I intend to re-scan these negatives tomorrow 18th May as soon as my new negative scanner (that can cope with medium format film) arrives and add the file to Great British Event I will also add the 1966 and 67 Shenington 6Hrs and Brands Hatch May 15th 1966, World Championships 1966, Cadwell Park May 22nd 1966.
I am working on two new site the first will be a very much upgraded version of this site with some very special features I was saving just encase the club you pay your fees too ever got their shit together and gave you a site to be proud of (not much danger of that) and the other will be a place for all the photos from the 80s onwards I have in my collection, I have no intention of spending a lot of time on this site and it will be a while before you see it.
More news soon
