BRENDAN LANGLOIS JOINS THE FIRSTKART.COM RACE TEAM
"Talented junior sets sights high for upcoming events"
Guelph, ON. -- September 6, 2006 -- First Kart North America and the FirstKart.com race team are pleased to announce the signing of Junior Intercontinental A (JICA) standout Brendan Langlois. The Stars of Karting and World Karting Association (WKA) Manufactures Cup competitor will join the FirstKart.com arrive and drive program for the remainder of the '06 season as he looks to take victories at the Stars of Karting (SoK) Finale in Toronto, Ontario and the Race of the Americas in Henderson, Nevada.
"We are excited to have Brendan join our squad" stated FirstKart.com Team Principal Tony Ventresca. "He has had an excellent '06 season to date, always competing at the front of the pack and fighting for the victory. I am confident that Brendan has the natural talent and skills to win the Stars of Karting national title and that is what we will be shooting for in 2007."
Langlois, who is a multi-time regional champion, joins the FirstKart.com race team with lots of excitement in the program and is anxious to get behind the wheel of the On Track Promotions (otp.ca) First Kart. Langlois will first see action at the SoK finale over the September 22-24 weekend at the Woodbine Grand Prix temporary circuit where he has an outside shot at the '06 national crown.
In 2006, Langlois competed in two World Karting Association (WKA) Manufactures Cup events coming home with four podium results. In the Stars of Karting series, Langlois was the bridesmaid on the west coast finishing second in the championship race but hopes 2007 will produce a different outcome.
"I'm really looking forward to joining the FirstKart.com race team," Stated Langlois from his Kamloops, British Columbia home. "My goals for this year are to win the Stars of Karting Finale in Toronto and to compete in the FIA/CIK North American Championship in Henderson, Nevada. I want to increase my goals for next season and claim the JICA championship in the Florida Winter Tour as well as the east and west coast Stars of Karting titles. My ultimate goal is to become the JICA national champion."
