"Yes, it's all roses, until it starts affecting you personally. Until then the problem is at best academic, and at worst the figment of a whining fringe of pathetic dispensable losers (which for too many is the definition of anyone less well…"

"Yes john. It just has to affect them a bit before they change their minds. When they start missing events more often than normal or cant get their motor rebuilt due to costs, motels arent a viable prospect etc then their opinion might change. Like…"

"Yep. Karting is a shadow of what it is now and what it should be. To answer Trents original question, what happened to karting, the wrong people are managing it. Some administrators are in there just doing what they've always done because they…"

"We were low budget karters who managed to enjoy success with J's (not $5000 engines) and had just acquired Clubmans that made us competitive.  To have our engines made redundant over night was the end for us. I enjoyed the years Scott,…"

"The sport could have had parity at a fraction of the cost. Ken Seeber at Strike had the simple fix. Anyone who's interested can do their research and find his letter to the KA and make their own conclusion now with the benefit of hindsight"
