Hey, I’m just tryin’ to find out what the deal is. I understand karting the way it was in 01 when I won a track championship without touching anyone. I also won a rental kart championship in 11 where we were all plowing into each other at high rates of speed with the race director and flag man pointing and laughing at every wreck. Karting runs the gambit. If you’re telling me these guys are so closely matched they have to bump and grind on each other, I can see why they are upset about the new system. It’s just not my idea of clean racing. YMMV
