I read that article a few days ago and there’s no way that it could be considered good for karting. Unfortunately to some extent Emmo is correct, contact is rampant in kart racing and the higher the level the rougher it is.

I’ve heard too many “coaches” encourage young drivers to bash their way through the pack and the roughness and lack of respect is being carried over when they move to a different category. Kart racers are being taught methods that can’t be used in a “higher” category and that’s what we get as a sport by allowing it to continue.
