  2. Hegar Manufacturing supports RPG and crew. Coaching, mechanics and all around exceptional service to the customer from years of quality experience are what gives RPG the upper hand. When we look for assistance we choose RPG.

  3. If your on the fence for ANY reason don’t be…Mike is as good as they get, and is very down to earth and approachable. Karting like all motorsports is also a game of technology…and with that brings the need for an “edge” against your competition…Mike Rolison IS THAT “EDGE”…He is a class act and also has a high regard for the way these young drivers carry themselves off the race track and in the classroom. It is money well spent, and like ALL things…it’s NOT going to happen overnight. ProSoundAudioServices throughly endorses Mike Rolison and the Rolison Performance Group!
