Karting Motor / Revista sobre el mundo del Karting El comienzo de una nueva carrera

El “comienzo” de una nueva “carrera”
Bienvenidos a www.kartingmotor.com, la nueva revista digital dedicada al mundo del karting.

Todo comenzó tras asistir a unas carreras de karting. Durante ese tiempo se observó que se cruzaban preguntas entre los asistentes sobre circuitos, los karts, la competición… y casi todas dejaban entrever una notable falta de información. Lo mismo sucedió cuando nos acercamos a los kioscos, donde sólo se trataban estos temas de forma más bien testimonial en algunas revistas del motor.

El comienzo de una carrera

Por ello decidimos crear esta plataforma informativa como punto de encuentro entre profesionales y aficionados a este cada día más apasionante mundo del Karting. El objetivo de este sitio web es que participe el mayor número de usuarios. Conscientes de los dos grandes mundos que lo compones: el del aficionado y el la competición, estamos seguros de seremos capaces de cumplir este objetivo.El primero, el compuesto por miles de aficionados al motor, la velocidad y el desafió. El segundo, además como medio de deporte llevado incluso a una mayor o menor futura profesión.

 

Inicialmente tenemos previsto, como ejemplo, el ir incorporando mes a mes artículos sobre el kat, ampliando las direcciones de circuitos de España, opiniones sobre este mercado, noticias sobre el karting y el motor, en definitiva tras cada piloto adulto de kart hay un vehículo tratado de forma especial.

A todos os invitamos a participar. Enviarnos vuestras sugerencias, artículos y nosotros iremos dirigiendo este espacio hacia el lugar que entre todos decidamos que deba de estar.…
