"You are right Ian by saying you cant force people to race club days but you can put a system in place a system that supports grass roots clubs. Karters are also responsible in supporting clubs and karters at both levels have decided not to support…"

"In reply to Di,  If low attendances at club was the main reason you left karting then I dont blame you.  I have come back after a 4 year absence and wow what a change but I am finding a way to make it work. When selecting a suitable class…"
