About

It does not matter whether you are a new driver starting out in the sport or a seasoned team racing in the European Championships, the price structure and attention to detail is the same. As Steve's reputation has grown, so have the companies facilities which now boast an extremely accurate state of the art Dynosens Rotronics engine dynomometer specifically designed for kart engines plus the very latest Sunnen honing, machining and CMM measuring equipment. Every day engines continually arrive from all over Europe to be rebuilt race prepared for their next race meeting.   So the company has grown and many would say that Steve is a victim of his own success as he harries through the day making sure every engine is just right and gets out on schedule. But one thing hasn't changed and that is Steve's continual quest for perfection and his honest, no- nonsense approach to his customers.

Steve Ogden

Steve Ogden has

been involved in

karting for over 40

years.  Steve raced 

and then began

providing driver tuition and advice at both

British and European Championship levels. 

In the early years Steve had to fit his

karting in and around his full time job as a

teacher.

In 1990 with the amount of work

increasing, Steve decided to move full

time into the karting industry.

 

With a teaching degree in Engineering

and 12 years experience of educating

youngsters, kart racing tuition and engine

rebuilding seemed a natural progression.

In the early days Steve's interest centred

on the 100cc classes, working on engine

preparation, chassis supply and race

support, this was also supplemented by

general engineering work. He now focuses

on the Rotax FR125 Max and IAME X30

and Gazelle Cadet classes, but also still

working on engines in the various 100cc

classes.

Steve is passionate about engineering

excellence and has always been extremely

interested in the mechanical side of the

sport. Over the years this has directed

and streamlined the business into what it

is today. A company that specialises in the

race preparation and  fiching of race

engines.

When Steve started preparing 100cc engines in the early nineties, he initially worked on his own, in

a small rented unit, just outside the market town of Boroughbridge in North Yorkshire. In 1994 he

relocated into a purpose built industrial unit nearby, where he still resides. This enabled him to buy

specific machinery dedicated to the karting industry. At this time he was a Gillard and Tonykart

dealer, servicing the complete package, with track support and driver tuition.  As the customer

base has grown Steve has  had to take on more staff and the current work force of 5, consisting of

Steve, his wife Heather, Richard Dobson (9 years), Dave Young, (5 years) and Paul Cooper (3rd

year engineering student).

Steve and Heather support the Euro championship meetings, whilst Dave and Richard split the

domestic calendar between them.

It seems to have been a long journey from 1984, teaching and repairing engines in a garage

outside his house, to the present full time occupation, in a superb purpose built workshop

environment.

It does not matter whether you are a new driver starting out in the sport or a seasoned team

racing in the European Championships, the price structure and attention to detail is the same.
