Bobby Wilson competes in West round #3

Guelph, ON. -- May 31, 2005 -- The race team will once again head across the country to compete in the third round of the Stars of Karting West Championship presented by the Indy Racing League, this time to Reno, NV. Joining the squad in Reno will be '03 Stars of Karting ICC champion Bobby Wilson as he will once again challenge for victory.

The ICC class will boast the majority of the entries as Wilson will be accompanied by Rene Silva and Nick Maddison as the trio will do battle in the headline class. Wilson will join forces with '02 SKI Tuner-of-the-Year Terry Ventresca providing a potent combination and a threat for victory. Wilson, who loves temporary circuits, along with Maddison and Silva will all be powered by SRA TM's.

British Columbia's Arly Irish and five-time Colombian national champion Gustavo Yacaman will do battle in the JICA category. Irish, who is looking to bounce back after a tough outing in Moran will look to the temporary circuit for the answer. Yacaman, who had a strong outing two weeks ago in New Castle, is still looking for his first JICA victory of the year after winning the Rotax Junior championship in the Florida Winter Tour.

Once again, the race team will be joined by First Kart designer Gianni Bianchi. Bianchi will make the trip to Reno to provide some extra support and chassis set-up advice to all five members of this weekends squad.

2005 is going to be an exciting year for the team as First Kart North America will travel to all East and West coast events in the Stars of Karting Championship, the World Karting Association Manufactures Cup and the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship. Arrive and Drive opportunities are available for any interested parties.
