I agree with David Hosie for the most part. The top down approach isn’t working. As a community we need to come together. By community I mean not just karters, but kart businesses, tracks and clubs too. That is, the ones that can conduct themselves professionally. Having only karter’s input by itself is a dangerous approach. Drivers for the most part only think of themselves in a first person narrative. The approach needs balance and perspective from people who are in it for the long haul and have vision. Right now too many orgs and kart businesses are in a scarcity mindset and that’s making things worse.
I see the future of karting as very bright, but there won’t be growth without some transitional pain, some of which we are already going through.
