This is the Corgi GS46-B-1a Super Karts Set containing two karts, one in Blue with a chrome suited driver and the other in Orange with a black suited driver. The GS46-B-1 set has a gold driver and a silver driver according to all the Corgi references I have and no mention is made of a black driver so this may be an uncategorised variation.

The karts have no opening parts but do have a pull-back action motor. Each kart consists of a metal body shell to which is fitted a red plastic steering wheel, plastic driver and plastic motor and exhaust assembly, and a black plastic base that holds the wheels and axles in place.

There is no interior or glazing.

All front wheels are of the "speed wheel" type - hollow one piece plastic with a "chromed" patterned "hub" in the center. The front wheels are the same on both models but the rear hubs on the blue kart are chromed plastic, while those on the orange kart are plain grey plastic, both with a separate, racing slick style. rubber tyre.

The base plate is black plastic and is marked at the centre front with corgi, at the centre rear "Made in GT. Britain". The base is held in place with two unpainted machined rivets, front and rear, and two painted machined rivets, one on each side.

This model was issued May 1982.
