“Commission to teams and paid entries for drivers”
Tempe, AZ – In preparation for the second round of the WSK North American Series by CKI, series officials have announced the continuation of an exciting new program that will benefit drivers and teams alike. In a continuous effort to give back to the sport of karting, CKI will continue its first time entrant and team incentive program at PKRA event in Phoenix May 14 – 16th.
“CKI believes strongly in supporting karting's grass roots racers. With the First Time Entrant Program we are able to welcome those drivers to our events while sponsoring them for future events at their local venue. Furthermore, a key element to our success is our race teams. Through the race team support program we are able to reward those teams that are supporting us. We look at all of our customers as partners. Our job is to make sure they have the best experience possible while attending our events." explained Randy Kugler, CKI Director of Partner Relationships.
Incentive program details are listed below:
CKI First Time Entrant Program – Ten competitors that have never entered a WSK North American Series or CKI event before will have the opportunity to win a sponsorship package that includes CKI-paid entries back at their home track or series by competing at the WSK North American Series event in Phoenix.
CKI Team Incentive Program - Teams that bring four to seven entries will receive a commission equal to 10% of the total entry fee paid for by their team. Teams that bring eight or more drivers will receive a commission equal to 15% of the total entry fee paid for by their team.
“I feel we are making headway with these programs as we had several first time entrants at the first event earlier in April,” stated CKI Director of Operations Kevin Williams. “We have had several teams that are now offering transportation services and engine rental programs to bring customers to the events which will increase series participation and for that, we are providing a kick back to teams as well as drivers in a form of paid entry fees for their local series.”
Championship Karting International will continue to offer all of the above mentioned incentive programs at each and every WSK North American Series event
In other WSK North American Series news, CKI has offered a local option class for the Grand Prix of Phoenix. KPV1 is available for drivers in the Sportsman age group (8 – 11) to participate in all the activities of the CKI event weekend.
