"Robopong Champion to contest in WKA Manufacturer's Cup"
Brownsburg, Indiana -- December 16, 2007 -- First Kart North America, First Kart USA along with the FirstKart.com race team are pleased to announce that 2007 Robopong 200 Mile TaG Endurance race co-driving champion Chris Larson has joined the FirstKart.com race team with support from PKP Yellowfin. Larson will contest the World Karting Association (WKA) Manufacturer's Cup in several different classes.
"Chris will be a valuable asset to our team," stated FirstKart.com Team Principal Tony Ventresca. "Chris impressed us all in his one and only event with the FirstKart.com race team this year and we were determined to strike a deal and get him behind the wheel for a run at several WKA championships."
Larson, who is a multi-time Manufacturer's Cup title holder with championships in Yamaha Junior Super Can, TaG and Yamaha Lite, will contest full time in at least three classes throughout the '08 WKA season. Larson will try his hand in the ultra-competitive TaG class as well as Can Lite and Yamaha Lite and in select events will compete in the HPV divisions and Heavy classes.
Looking to make an immediate impact on the WKA season, Larson will be joined by a host of other drivers as the First Kart crew will look to take victories and championships in the prestigious Manufacturer's Cup series.
