This is a home-made paddock starter assembled from all-new parts around 4 years ago and never operated at a circuit as I have electric rollers. It’s been used for turning over my cars at home and works well. It would benefit from a softer tyre on the kart wheel – these are easy to get in used condition.
It’s very manoeuvrable as it was constructed onto a sack-cart base and is robust. The engine, clutch, drive sprockets, shaft and chain were all bought new for the build, and are enclosed in an easily removable cover. The starter was designed to allow the operator to stand to one side of the car, not directly behind the exhaust.
I’d love it to be used, and offer it for sale. There is a video of it running (before it was cleaned) on this link:
