    Default Anyone know what this show is called from the 80's?

    It involved kids racing around courses on the likes of quadbikes, small hovercrafts and go-karts among others.

    I think it was on the BBC.

    Run the Gauntlet was on ITV - nearly every Bank Holiday Monday it was on in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    It was on Channel 4 from 1987 to 1989, and then on ITV (courtesy of Yorkshire and Tyne Tees) between 1993 and 1995 - I thought at first that it was something which was presented by a former Blue Peter presenter or something like that.
