This photo shows what can only be described as every young boy’s dream - a go-kart the size of an actual racing car.

Our archives contain very little detail about this shot, but we would love to know more. We know that the youngsters on it are from Ripley Mill Hill and the ‘Super Ecomiser’ car is the enthralling the gathered few . It appears to be part of a pedal car event at a race circuit - possibly Donington in Leicestershire.

If you can shed any light on this event, which took place in 1992, then email us at news@rhnews.co.uk, call us on 0115 9446188, or send us a letter: Ripley and Heanor News, 8 Heanor Road, Ilkeston, DE7 8ER.
