Week of Sept 8, 2020 Norcal Karters Updates

I just realized I haven’t had a post on this front page in a month, but A LOT has been going on in Norcal Karters and our karting region.

I started adding more How To Videos to our YouTube Page – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMqcyNxHL7Zs03w0poPD3tg

Videos include:
How to Mount and Dismount a kart tire
How to Assemble RLV Bead Breaker TRZ0028
Anatomy of the Walbro WB3A Carburetor

I have been kicking out the weekly podcast for event updates. This is my weekly kart event podcast that I usually publish on Mondays.
https://www.spreaker.com/show/norcal-and-beyond-karting-scene
I have also started a new podcast show that is specifically geared up as a promotion or PR Style Podcast. Up front, I’m very clear it is a paid for podcast for kart teams, shops, businesses, and other kart industry members.

If you are a karting business and would like a different type of media exposure and to capitalize on the popularity of the podcast format, please contact me. I’m always looking for show or website sponsors as well.

Speaking of site sponsors, Welcome Gary Carlton, http://gfckarting.com/, as our latest calendar sponsor, http://www.norcalkarters.com/calendar/. I have added the feature to our calendar to track sponsors that own shops or teams and wanted to have visibility on our race calendar.

I have also added a couple of new products to my affiliate ebay store to help raise additional funds for Norcal Karters.
I have added:
Norcal Karters Ring Spun T-Shirts
Norcal Karter Tire Roll Out Tape
Kart Tire Tools
For items branded Norcal Karters, all profits go back to the Norcal Karters Project. The goal is to raise more funds for 2021 to offer additional karting event coverage and special gatherings such as Swap Meets and BBQ’s to have a karting outreach program.

I also accept straight donations via PayPal. Every dollar really does help. Over the past couple of years, shirt sales and donations have allowed the website to add the Podcast shows, upgrade computers, purchase mics, headsets, podcast hosting subscriptions, and domain renewals.

I don’t spend the money lightly or without cause. I do appreciate all support the karting community has offered.

Until my next post, Have a Great Day!

Norcal Karters Updates – Week of July 27, 2020

Tracks are opening back up, race events are happening, so there seems to be some semblance of normalcy going on in the karting world.

Last night, I dropped my 88th podcast episode.

TB Kart Logo
TB Kart Logo

The 88th episode was sponsored by TBKart USA. Many of you are familiar with the green chassis that has appeared in many of my videos. From day one of the Norcal Karters project that I took over, the TB Kart team has been there for advice, support, and cash. Many of the videos I have published to YouTube has used the TBKart products.

My show is always looking for sponsors or donations, so if you either value the content or would like to market specifically to kart racers, predominately in California, reach out to me so we can work up a package that fits your needs.

Or, if you prefer to just donate, we accept donations via our paypal link – https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/norcalkarters

All funds go directly back to Norcal Karters. Some recent purchases I have made is upgrading our podcasting platform, purchased a new webcam for future video interviews and podcasts, purchasing apparel with the Norcal Karters logo.

Apparel can be purchased on our site, http://www.norcalkarters.com/store/apparel/

retyre Used Kart Racing Tires

We also have big updates with the ReTyre Product for Northern California. Besides ExtraKartParts, there are two stocking dealers for the reTyre program. Cambrian Go Karts / Prairie City are stocking the Evinco Reds and Blues. KartSpeed Motorsports is stocking the Bridgestone YLR’s.

If you don’t know what ReTyre is, it is very simple. We do not retread or recap tires. We take premium kart tires such as MG, Evinco, and Bridgestone from large national events. Inspect, wrap, and box for resale at a fraction of the new price. The tires we sell under ReTyre have at least 80% of their tire life left.

If you are interested, reach out to me, tires go pretty fast, especially the cadet sizes and the Evinco Blues.

If you appreciate this content, we accept cash donations to help offset technology costs – https://www.paypal.me/norcalkarters
