Seven years ago GoPro, CMP, and AMP didn’t exist. Karting is starting to grow the corridor between Florida and the Midwest with some well-developed kart tracks (GoPro) and higher-end multi-use facilities (the other two).

Hopefully, the karting industry will continue to add state-of-the-art, modern tracks that will help grow the network.

It seems to require a massive investment, but I think NCMP is the model, and the one that GoPro followed, with multiple income sources:

1. big-time lifetime karter involved

2. Rental karts & a rental kart league (perhaps the single-most important feature)

3. Within an hour of a big city (one with a racing culture helps)

4. Retail & internet sales

5. Connected to an importer

6. Driver coaching / trackside support

7. Hosts national races
