Interesting. However, with my pedant's hat on I must take issue with the assertion that the DKW engine had 3 separate coils because it had 6V electrics. It is (or was, in the days before fully electronic ignition systems) a very normal arrangement for 2-stroke triples to have three sets of points on the end of the crankshaft, each firing its own individual cylinder's coil. It's nothing to do with coil voltage or recharge rate. It's just the simplest way to fire a multi-pot stroker, and doesn't require mucking about with a distributor and whatnot.
Suzuki triples 2 strokes used much the same setup as well.

Most racing cars were built right hand drive if it was to race in European , even some US teams. Dew to having more right hand corners than left.

He's a couple of Midget racers from the 30s a Skirrow 4x4 and a BSA powerd front wheel drive midget. The BSA one is the one with the young boy holding the normal size wheel. If you would like to see more about the Skirrow Spaicel check out the YouTUBE channel ShedRacing he brought the#66 car and tells you everything you need to know about it, that's him pictured driving it!
Cheers,
