A old dog like you knows that karting has suffered a ‘retention crisis’ since the 80’s and most of todays karters have no idea of Russell’s history because most are new arrivals that will be gone in 3 years just like their predecessors.

Pipe of the month, Motor of the month, Tire of the month, Chassis of the month that are too complex and too wide to promote any good competition on aging track structures has driven more away then it has brought in.

I’ve heard a lot of people say over the years “I didn’t leave karting, Karting left me” and who fault is that ?

Bob K…..old dog too.
