Just a quick karting update. In my last post, Jarrett’s plan was to move up to new class of karts, and race 50% in the UK and 50% in Europe. However, in January of this year, Jarrett was asked to join two European teams, Parolin and Sodikart, to race OKJ. After testing with both teams, Jarrett decided to join Sodikart.
Jarrett will be racing a mix of karting championships, including Champions of the Future, FIA European Championship, FIA World Championship, and WSK (World Series Karting) Championship. We will be racing exclusively in Europe this year. European OKJ is the pinnacle of karting, and the proving ground for F1 drivers. Both Gasly and Ocon raced with Sodikart in OKJ. The top speed in OKJ is around 130km/h.
What has this got to do with my substack? Well one reason I run a substack is it gives me the freedom to help my son with his karting career. If you suddenly see me posting video from what looks like a hotel room, you should understand that I am on the road karting. I will be in the Czech Republic and Denmark in May and June with karting, so anyone who is interested in coming to the track, please drop me a line and we can meet up. I also have plans to offer some kit to subscribers. I found a supplier, who did the design below, but for some reason does not want to take an order. Will sort out soon.

Jarrett is always looking for sponsors, so if you are interested drop me a line.
