Kart design progress – Schuurman collection

European Engines

European specialist kart engines, which were a later development than the repurposed US engines

Back in July Frank Weir visited Harm Schuurman’s vintage kart museum in Oss in The Netherlands.

One of the things that caught our eye was the differences that soon became apparent between the European and Americam branches of the sport, both in karts and in engines.

Mr Schuurman is the majority shareholder of the Schuurman BV company who distribute a vast amount of motorsport equipment. He was a factory driver for DAP and Dino in the 1970s and won the Coppa Dei Campioni at Jesolo in 1981 against some legendary drivers.
