Hi. I’m Jon and i’m the writer here on The Slip Angle, thanks for reading!
My Karting story begins in 2005. After watching Dan Wheldon win the epic 2005 Indy 500 with my Dad, we stopped in at a local kart track here in Colorado on our way home. Thus began many long hours on the internet researching, shopping, reading forums and watching videos. My first kart was an old KRT/Rotax, and I was in way too far over my head in that first season, but I was hooked. My first race ended 400 miles from home, in the dirt at turn 1 (on lap 1) with a broken go-kart. Slowly, i started to figure things out, (finally) won a track championship in 2009, and switched to racing Stock Honda Shifterkarts in 2010. Now, years later, i’m here on your internets. I’ll be bringing you quality original content about Karting (and many other things off topic, i’m sure!).
If you have anything you want to see added to the site, comments, suggestions, rants, or just want to throw some expletives in my direction, drop me an email! I want to hear from my readers so we can make this the best Karting blog around!
See you on the grid.
