A gang of children enter a go-kart race, but their rivals try to stop them from winning
This Children’s Film Foundation production used Rye House Kart Circuit, Hertfordshire, now one of the oldest in the country. In the background of many scenes is the overhead catenary of the Lea Valley line plus the girder bridge over the River Lea itself. Trains do creep into the background of two of the early scenes, but they are sadly edited in such a way that only the coaching stock is visible. There are also a number of scenes filmed in an unknown rail-served scrapyard.
