    <font color=”#009007″>My name is Scott Sievers. I live in Snohomish, Washington. I have had my son in and out of karting twice, just because of finances, and I am trying to find a way to offset costs of racing, so we can make racing a more permanent part of our life. I came across your videos on YouTube as I was searching for a way to start a business in karting myself, so I decided to sign up with your site to see what kind of insights you may have. I love that the Karting community seems to be growing, although it was pretty big when I was racing in the 80’s, and I think it would be cool to make my family a part of that community. </font>

      Looks like you have been up top see Italian Motors.

      I would keep an eye out on there used inventory they always have good things.

      I know that they have a Race scholarship program that is amazing for kids.

      I am not sure what your racing budget is but anything can be possible.

      Let us know what class he is competing in and we maybe able to help come up with an idea.

    3. I’m here to learn as much as I can since I’m sort of a amateur still when it comes to competitive Karting. I’m also looking to dip my feet in further into the community that Karting is.

    4. I’m excited to meet more people because the community of karting is amazing and I’ve had great experiences with the people I’ve met on the track.

    5. I found go kart academy on Instagram. It was really cool to see a team like 893 especially at AMP because you guys are probably the first karting team be very vocal about what you guys are doing on and off the track racing wise.
