Here is a Turbonique rocket-powered Rupp Kart besting a blown hemi-powered rail! The kart is driven by a Turbonique employee (unidentified).
This photo was contributed by rocket karting pioneer Arvil Porter. Besides building the rocket motors used by Jack McClure (see the Rocket Karts article), Arvil alsobuilt and ran rocket karts himself. 

Next time someone refers to karts as kids' toys, show 'em the above photo!!!
