Going back to the late 1990s and the early days of Superkarts! USA, Gary Carlton has been a force behind the wheel of a shifter kart. From his days as a Trackmagic factory driver, to his most recent exploits behind the wheel in Europe, Carlton is widely regarded as one of the greatest American shifter drivers of all time. Much of his time in the seat has been spent representing the factories of the most well-regarded kart brands in the world: IPK, Zanardi, Modena Engines, TB Kart, Intrepid and CRG, all the while racking up countless podiums and victories. On the back of all this success, and at the conclusion of winning the 2017 Granja 500 in Brazil, Carlton hung up his helmet for good to put his focus into a grand project, one fit for a once-in-a-generation talent. Carlton’s latest endeavor has been to develop a kart which would bear his name as the basis for a race team of his own.

RLV is a hands on, owner and employee involved company. RLV’s goals include increased participation, user friendly products, noise level reduction, and the pursuit of high technology 2 and 4 cycle karting products. RLV offers a complete line of high quality exhaust products, silencers and many other quality karting products. RLV designs, tests and develops all of its products in-house. RLV’s own testing equipment includes complete flow bench facilities, an inertia dyno, and a matched pair of computer driven static load dynos. After these products have passed careful scrutiny, they are thoroughly track tested by dozens of proven karting champions, as well as the emerging club racer. RLV then collects, compiles and analyzes the data. If the results meet the previously defined criteria, the product is then put into production. RLV supports a dealer network and does not sell direct. RLV believes that this ensures an ample supply of product nationally and internationally. This approach ensures readily available technical information and support for RLV product users. Ultimately, RLV wishes to make karting less complicated with products that are more user friendly, quieter, and most of all, fun and enjoyable. Having said that, RLV wishes everyone good luck, have fun and be safe.
