Unfortunately the days of innovation in the karting sport for the most part are gone — everyone seems content to run spec classes…..same..same..same. For me having come from an era were innovation was very common place, it now is a very boring situation.
That is not to say the racing is bad now days, it’s just that when everyone runs the exact same power package, allot is lost in my view.
Many of the early stars of the sport, the real innovators that were not afraid to step outside the box would not fit in these days.
I am thankful that I was around in the early years of karting when we couldn’t wait to get to the big races to see what the other guys had come up with.
