Cool Photo

This photo appeared on the cover of Kart, June 1961.The photo related to an article that month about the impact of factory racing teams on the sport of karting. Some of the quotes in that article:

"If you bar factory teams you're only kidding can't buck indirect or undercover factory support" (Red Crise, Grand Prix Kart Club of America)

"I feel sorry for the individual who doesn't have the advantages of being on a factory team, but remember that nobody started out on one." (Marv Patchen, Go Kart Club of America)

"There's nothing wrong with factory teams performing exhibitions to show what they can do, but they shouldn't be allowed to take the trophies, glory and prestige away from the karter of average means." (Chuck Niles, North American Karting Association)
