Other Interesting Sites

Yellow Dog Racing
This is undoubtedly the best U.S. site for bike, Odyssey and snowmobile powered buggies. Richard must have about half a dozen alter egos. Not only does he race and work on two buggies, he flies R.C. helicopters, rides motocross, presumably works, and then finds time to maintain a full-on website. I've still never had a Christmas card from him though!

JHMKarts
Home of the DIY Bullfrog Off-Road Fun Kart.

York Autograss Club 
There are a huge number of Autograss clubs around the U.K., with about 5000 members nationally. 
Of special interest to bike motor nuts, are the Specials, some with ZX11, Blackbird and GSX1100R motors. Some even have twin motors!
These grassers are awesome performers (though real ugly ducklings!). Check out their video clips in "Thrills and spills".
