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.

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!

This Weeks New Updates on Norcal Karters

This week we have a few good updates on Norcal Karters, our podcast, and our YouTube Page.

The Norcal Karters Calender, www.norcalkarters.com/calendar, has been updated. At this time, I am only showing sponsored (paid for) clubs or promoters, and National Level events. At the beginning of the year, I listed all clubs and promoters that had an event in Northern California, It is very time consuming. Due to the COVID impact on karting and our race schedules, I made the decision to reach out to our sponsors to make sure they were up to date. I have not reached out to non-supporters of the NorcalKarters website.

If your series has a fixed schedule for the remainder of 2020, please contact me so we can put you back on our calendar. I had to make this decision because the calendar had too many “ghost” events and I need the calendar to be accurate for our racers.

Also this week, I did another podcast with upcoming events – https://www.spreaker.com/show/norcal-and-beyond-karting-scene

I added a few videos to our YouTube page. 1 is a blatant sells attempt for a cheap solvent tank option that is portable and efficient. Any funds raised from the sale of the baskets or the kit go directly back to https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/norcalkarters.

The second video is my long winded explanation of how to properly use Safety Wire Pliers and the proper way to use the safety wire.

For the next few weeks, I plan on doing another weekly update on our podcast Monday July 27. I’m also working on a few guests for next week and you will want to bookmark my new podcast show – https://www.spreaker.com/show/kart-race-reports-a-pr-podcast

For now, this is all. Have a great week.
