Go Karting originated in California in the mid-fifties. It quickly found its way across the Pond to the UK and soon became popular. Villiers were an obvious choice of engine to fit being cheap, easily tuneable and plentiful. Of course Villiers themselves soon picked up on this and marketed their engines specifically to the karting crowd.
I'm not 100% sure of the date of this flyer but it is from around 1962.
