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!
