OK, maybe not *British*, but used near a lot of Brit-cars:

Mostly, "pit-bikes" (or "pit-buggys") used at the races are fairly ordinary scooters or mopeds.

Like ~THIS~ (https://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/aeronca65t/vintage/IMGP0020.jpg) one.

But if you've got a bit of spare change, the "haute couture" way to get around the pits is on a new Ducati Desmo like this one seen at the VRG vintage event last week:

Rich or poor, it's good to have money!

And here's some other "pit vehicles" I've seen at the races.

One of ~MY FAVOURITES~ (https://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/aeronca65t/vintage/mccabe_vrg06_pitrike.jpg) ....very practical!


~"PETUNIA"~ (https://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/aeronca65t/vintage/IMGP0138.jpg) at the Lime Rock Vintage:


~THIS WAS SEEN~ (https://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/aeronca65t/vintage/IMGP0167.jpg) at a Lime Rock EMRA race....*creative*!


~HERE WE ARE~ (https://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/aeronca65t/vintage/IMGP2.jpg) in Chris Schoemaker's Pit-Buggy at Summit Point last weekend...fully street licensed, he and his wife can drive the Moke into the town if needed and leave the transporter at the track.

I like "Petunia".

Meanwhile, here's another. Nial's seen it in the flesh, I'm sure, and I've posted it here in the distant past.
