Evert Bos and his Landia kart

If there ever was a kart that made its mark on the Dutch ‘skelter’ scene it was the Landia manufactured by Evert Bos at De Meern, in the province of Utrecht from 1959 to 1984.

Evert Hendrikus Bos was born on the 22nd June 1924 in Velthuzen, a neighbourhood west of De Meern. Evert’s father owned a car and motorcycle garage as well as a plumbing business. As a young man Evert was passionate about motorcycling and in 1953 he won the Dutch Trial Championship. At that time Evert was working for Castrol and for some unknown reason the management of the global oil company decreed that Evert had to cease participating in further motor cycle competitions. Trials loss was karting’s gain; Evert became involved at that time with the new sport of karting and changed from making motorcycles to karts.
