Seven years ago GoPro, CMP, and AMP didn’t exist. Karting is starting to grow the corridor between Florida and the Midwest with some well-developed kart tracks (GoPro) and higher-end multi-use facilities (the other two).
Hopefully, the karting industry will continue to add state-of-the-art, modern tracks that will help grow the network.
It seems to require a massive investment, but I think NCMP is the model, and the one that GoPro followed, with multiple income sources:
1. big-time lifetime karter involved
2. Rental karts & a rental kart league (perhaps the single-most important feature)
3. Within an hour of a big city (one with a racing culture helps)
4. Retail & internet sales
5. Connected to an importer
6. Driver coaching / trackside support
7. Hosts national races
