It is not typical that we issue a news release when we get a new member to the club. (With GCKI approaching 300 members I’d be a pretty busy guy!) But then Robby Mott is not a typical new member. In case you haven’t heard about Robby, (and chances are good that you probably have) he is a multiple U.S. national karting champion and also the founder of karting safety device manufacturer, Ribtect. Given GCKI’s emphasis on safety, having Robby in our midst will serve as a daily reinforcement to that goal. From their website: “Ribtect is committed to providing the karting industry with the most effective, functional safety equipment possible.” If you’d like to learn more about Robby, here’s a great link to his story and his mission: http://www.ribtect.com/About_Ribtect.html When you see him out at the track practicing or competing in the upcoming Southwest Regional Cup races, stop over and say “Hello.” He won’t be hard to spot – just look at his safety gear!
