America’s Top-Ranked TaG Driver – Michael d’Orlando

It’s not a popularity contest.

It’s not about who the champions are.

It’s not about the prestigious – or not-name of a race or a series or championship.

It’s about being ranked the top karter in a division based on who – and how many – other drivers you’ve driven against. And beaten.

Think of college athletics “strength of schedule,” and you get the idea. It’s computed by a proprietary algorithm by, using reams of data.
