From what I remember it was virtually a flat chassis like a three wheeled kart with the engine behind Doug who sat in a bucket seat with his passenger at the back able to move around the platform. CoG was lower than a conventional outfit so cornering was quicker which is where the relative lack of power was minimised.
Don't suppose that anyone has pics of this machine
My dad has pictures of it, i'll see i he can scan them
doug raced at lydden in mid 90's on a homebuilt outfit with two cr500 moto cross engines joined with about 16 foot of chain, tony fitz passengered it once and then he turned up passengerless and someone went out on it, the headstock snapped off on the bottom straight and it piled into the tyres at the elbow but luckily resulted in a broken leg for the passenger
