It is unfortunate that Russell Karting is closing.
From my jaded view, too many of beginning karters are taken in by “snake oil salespeople” when they are naive and starting out. One such business nearly derailed our karting adventure at the onset. We recovered from spending on these hucksters,but many never do and quit almost before they get started.
Russell had to compete against these world class know it alls with slick sales pitches and little else. I keep my mouth shut in the paddock,but when asked, I try to point newbes in a good direction. To someone like Russell and others who actually know and care about their customers.
I’m sorry to see Russell go…such a class act. They will be missed.
