The recent interview as noted on Australasian Karting News with AKA President Donald Wells makes interesting reading , however in case you thought this site was too serious here's a lighter side, then again, it might be more serious .The following is Part 1 of a 4 Part series of how we reckon a 'live' interview might go covering a range of topics.....Have a look at the forum whether this one or the magazine version is closest to the mark ..........
|KN Mr Well ?
KN This is KartNews
