Actually, I doubt those are anything like Rhodes Cars- way lower and lighter. I think those are Greenspeed Quads. "Tons of fun" without being multi - multi geared topheavy 'TONS'!

Thanks for the "correction" ...agreed on the tons of heavy...I bought a 2-seater Rhoads and sold it for more than I bought it at a local auction house. Lucky timing I guess. And yes it was heavy and a liittle awkward to drive.

Frames here. It looks like a Rhoades car to be, but I'm not that familiar with them. The trike could be a 4-wheeler, I can't tell from the photo. I would think that if they allowed "anything" in the race, then those would all be bicycles instead of 4-wheelers. It does look like a lot of fun, although I'm not really into racing (too slow and all that).
