About Mr. Eric S. Gunderson
Eric Gunderson was introduced to the world of motorsports in 2004. Within a few months of visiting a local kart racing school, Eric and his family were traveling to karting events across the Southwest.
While karting was initially a family hobby, by 2007 Eric was a regional and grand national champion in sprint kart racing. In 2008, the young driver from San Diego, California entered the oval-track racing ladder system, progressing upward through several disciplines of racecars with consistent success. While the tracks, competitors, and vehicles changed over the years, Eric’s belief in the value of karting never wavered.
In 2012, Eric stepped away from racing temporarily to attend the University of Colorado, where he received a Bachelor’s in Geology, and a minor in business. Upon completing his education, Eric reentered the sport of karting in 2016, serving as an official with The Colorado Karting Tour. He also founded Apex Predator Driver Development, which teaches kart racers of all ages how to improve their driving abilities. On January 01, 2019, a new venture, PointKarting.com was also launched. Today, this e-commerce platform works with karters throughout the United States to further their racing efforts through outstanding customer service, sales, and support.
Eric's most recent publication, “Karting 101” is the result of the time that Eric has spent at The Colorado Karting Tour. As he began to integrate into the local karting community, he realized that there was a stark disparity between his knowledge of karting, and the information available to the general public about the sport he loved and actively engaged in. With the support and encouragement of his colleagues at CKT, Eric began to draft the initial sections that are now present in this document in April of 2016.
