Shenington

Kart racing was brought to the UK in 1958 by American airmen based here in the UK.  After a successfull demonstration at Silverstone in 1959 British rules were drawn up and soon large crowds were coming to meetings.

At first the local club was called Banbury Kart Club, inaugurated in 1959 and holding the first meeting on Shenington (Edgehill) airfield in February 1960 (see picture left for the first ever start).  Five thousand spectators came to see the twenty or thirty drivers competing, in those days there were not so many demands on leasure time.

The club was founded by a Mr John Cooper who bought karts for hire, these were augmented by competitor’s own karts.  The facilities in the village did a roaring trade on that first weekend and indeed on many others.

During 1960 an 1961 the club held rounds of the first World Championship which had its final round in Nassau, Bahamas, the other rounds were in Italy and USA.  Stirling Moss raced at Nassau but not we believe at Shenington, but many famous drivers such as Graham Hill did race karts in that time period.

Kimbolton

Kimbolton Airfield was the home of the 379th Bomb Group during WW2. The 379th Bomb Group flew B-17s and the group was signified by the letter K within a triangle on its tail.  During all of its 330 bombing missions, it dropped 26,640 tons of bombs, shot down 315 enemy aircraft and lost 141 of its B-17s to enemy action.

The 379th Bomb Group was the only unit ever awarded the 8th Air Force Grand Slam, a very unique honour in recognition of its achievements. They also received two Presidential Unit Citations. The Group flew its last combat mission on April 25, 1945 and was finally deactivated on July 25, 1945.

The airfield at Kimbolton was originally a fighter base for the RAF. When it became evident Germany was not going to invade England, the RAF decided it didn’t need many inland fighter bases and was happy to lease most of them to the United States as airfields for heavy bombers.
