WKA recently learned the passing of long-time WKA SuperKart racer John Gibson, who passed after battling a long illness. A resident of WKA’s home base in the Charlotte area, John built and raced some of the fastest SuperKarts in WKA history for decades. As an early member of the famed Homelite SuperKart Racing Team, John added to his driving talents through his design and fabrication of SuperKarts for years to come. His fabrication work even graced the pages of Popular Mechanics and provided dozens of racers superior equipment over the years of WKA Road Racing. Jon Gibson will truly be missed.
