INNISFIL INDY/GP KARTS READY TO TACKLE LAS VEGAS
Four drivers will enter five classes under the Innisfil Indy banner seeking SKUSA SuperNationals glory
Innisfil, ON - The Innisfil Indy/GP Karts racing team will hit the road in November. Four drivers along with family, friends and crewmembers will travel to Las Vegas, Nevada, USA to compete in this years SKUSA SuperNationals XIV. The SuperNationals is the largest karting event in North America and drives entries from around the globe. The International field will converge at the RIO All Suites Hotel and Casino from November 17 to 21 to race on a temporary track layout in the rear parking lot of the RIO.
Leading the attack for the Innisifil Indy team, 2010 Brian Stewart Racing Karting Championship F125 Shifter Champion Zack Meyer will enter the headline class of KZ2. Last year, this class attracted many Formula One drivers and professionals' karters from around the world, and this year the class is once again stacked full of some of the worlds best shifter kart pilots.
"It's Vegas, what more can I say," commented Innisfil Indy's Frank Launi. "This is the best of the best event, held in the perfect place. I know my drivers will perform, and with my brother providing them with the best engines, we should do very well."
Joining him in KZ2 will be BSRKC third-place finisher Josh Adams who is making the switch to a GP chassis for the SuperNationals. Adams will pull double-duty, as he will also compete in S2, a Semi-Pro Stock-Moto shifter class.
"I'm really excited about the group of guys we have going this year," smiled Launi. "Zack just returned from Italy after doing two races over there and is now ready to rock in Vegas."
A third driver from the Innisfil Indy stable will also compete in the KZ2 class as Kristian Jeffrey from Guyana will return to his familiar GP Kart. Jeffrey also raced this year in the BSRKC and showed some impressive speed all season long.
All of the shifter engines have been prepared in-house by Joe Launi. Launi has worked closely with Meyer over the past few seasons and the duo, along with Adams and Jeffrey are ready to take on the world in Las Vegas.
Finally, the team is completed with Junior pilot Chad Campbell. Campbell makes the switch from his usual Rotax Junior machine to a TaG Junior Leopard powered GP Kart. Racing in the BSRKC as well as at the Innisifil Kart Club, Campbell makes his first start outside of Canada and is looking forward to the challenge.
"I've worked with Chad for the past month or so and he has shown great improvement. This is his first big race, but he is still expecting to do well," Continued Frank.
