Founder Tim Gillard looks back over the 40-year-life of the historic brand, now part of OTK Kart Group, with interesting anecdotes and trivia in a three-episode web miniseries
OTK Kart Group is pleased to introduce the three-episode web miniseries dedicated to Gillard Kart, a documentary interview with Tim Gillard, its founder, to celebrate the more than 40-year history of the famous English brand and to tell the steps that recently led OTK to incorporate it into its product range.
Founded in 1980, Gillard Kart achieved prestigious targets, reaching the peak of success in the new Millennium with three European championships (2001, 2004, 2005) and a World Championship (2005). Even today, it is the only British manufacturer to boast results of international standing at this level.
OTK Kart Group has been proudly carrying on the Gillard Kart legacy since 2021, following Tim Gillard’s decision to retire and incorporating the historic British manufacturer into our product range.
In the first part of the documentary interview, Tim Gillard talks about his passion for engines and karting: his first contact with racing, the enthusiasms and ambitions that led him to create his own brand, the challenges and satisfactions he has achieved over the years as well as the many curiosities that enrich the history of the British brand.
