He chose to be a big fish in a small pond instead of a small fish in an ocean, the state ffords competitors have made a similar choice. Yet, he's having a go at them? Pfft! As a result of him taking the soft option of "raising the bar" in fford, slowly, slowly aus fford has gone beyond being an entry level class, it is only by reputation, nothing else. Fford doesn't need the bar to be raised, it's a amateur/privateer class, raising the bar is for whatever class is designated to Gold Star.

So it is in theory the entry level to bigger games (notwithstanding superkarts etc that do full tracks), and eventually main game, whatever that may be
I'm fully aware of what fford is supposed to do. However, if you read this post...
