LOL “who cares”.  Probably a couple of dozen dealers in North America for starters. Add to that a couple of hundred people who own a CRG kart.

CRG will probably follow the OTK model. Factory owned inventory stored and distributed out of a warehouse direct to dealers. Partner up with someone that has experience to manage it. CRG captures the importer margin and all the dealers pay the same price. To the racer- probably harder to get a “deal”.

It is no secret that CRG’s market share eroded substantially after they pulled the plug on PSL.  I understand PSL’s biz has grown  this year with Birel. It is also no secret that CRG dealers are having a problem getting the parts they need in a timely manner under the current arrangement.
