I believe I’ve spoken fondly on here with a misty tear in my eye remembering the quality publication that was KartSport.
Above all other media publications I’ve seen in karting, it had professional polish and swagger. Which made it seem super legit and in turn, legitimized the sport it was covering. It made the big names of the time seem like heroes for us aspiring young bucks. For a while my dream was literally just to make the cover of KartSport. Instead of feeling like kind of a weird kid for being into little race cars, I felt like I was the cool kid for being into such a badass sport.
I finally threw out my KartSport shirt like last year, it started to look like Swiss cheese.
