you proud of what you've done ?
ARS Of course. It is a watershed in the
history of karting
KNN How so ?
ARS Clubs have asserted their right to have
things the age old, tried and tested way
KNN What way is that ?
ARS The age old tried and tested way.
I said that.
KNN That's not what I meant
ARS Well you should ask what you mean
KNN I did
ARS Donald said you werent the fastest kart
on the grid
KNN Try this then. What is the procedure of
the age old tried and tested way ?
ARS The clubs appoint a delegate to the
Council which meets once a month
KNN To do what ?
ARS What's on the agenda
KNN And you tell the delegates what to do ?
KNN Then who tells them what to do ?
ARS They're all nice people, been in karting
for years. They know what to do
KNN If they know what to do, how come they
havent done anything to improve karting in years ?
ARS Yes they have
KNN What ?
ARS They voted down best management practice
KNN So the club executives dont want best
ARS No, we're not saying that
KNN Well what are you saying ?
ARS You can have a board of directors but we
tell them what to do
KNN Why would you have a Board of Directors
and you tell them what to do ?
Because we know what to do and they dont
KNN What do you mean they dont know what to do
ARS Well, they're company types, running
businesses, lawyers, finance, accounting, marketing, that sort of stuff
KNN Yes, and in a company they combine to
increase income and reduce cost
ARS No doubt about it. You'd sack em if they
KNN And they might go about doing that by
increasing the profile of the sport ? Marketing ? Selling the product ?
ARS Why would you do that ?
KNN More participants, more competition,
ARS Says who ?
KNN The ASC, v8 supercar racing, swimming.
Sports that used to have a second rate profile that are now up there
ARS Why would you want that ?
KNN You sure Donald didnt mean your were a
wheel short of a kart ?
ARS Listen son. Kartings not like
that. We know best.
KNN Do you own a factory ?
ARS No, why do you ask ?
KNN Ever heard of Ross Hill ?
KNN He said karters are stupid, we know best.
ARS Clever bloke
KNN Actually, they burnt his factory
