"Drivers and Tuners will compete at Rotax Grand Final"

Guelph, Ontario -- October 23, 2006 -- First Kart North America and the FirstKart.com race team will be well represented in Viana do Castelo, Portugal as drivers and tuners will travel overseas to compete in the Rotax Grand Finals. With over 170 competitors from 40 different nations, the once-a-year event will take place from November 14-18th at the exciting new Karting Circuit of Viana.

Representing the FirstKart.com program will be Stars of Karting competitors Fidencio Guzman and Rudy Camarillo. Both First Kart pilots qualified for the event with podium finishes in their respective classes in Mexico. Camarillo went on to score a dominating junior victory while Guzman qualified with a 3rd place result.

Traveling to Portugal straight from the SuperKarts! USA (SKUSA) SuperNationals in Las Vegas, NV will be First Kart co-team managers and tuners Mike Maurini and A.J Whisler. The duo will work alongside team engineer Terry Ventresca to ensure all of our competitors are at the head of their respective classes.

"I am excited to have so many of our guys traveling to Portugal," explained Ventresca. "It is a terrific opportunity to see karting at the international level and gain the experience to bring back to our team, dealers and customers here in North America."

True North Motorsport competitor and fellow First Kart driver Max Riddle will also make the trek overseas thanks to his podium result in August's Canadian National Championships. The national level junior driver will work with True North Motorsport President Kevin Loster as the duo will look to fight for victory.
