“First of local option classes starts at round #2”
Tempe, AZ – The Championship Karting International is pleased to announce that the KPV 1 division will be a local option class at the next round of the WSK North American Series by CKI. Being run at the fantastic PKRA facility in Phoenix, Arizona, sportsman competitors competing in the KPV 1 class will be racing in the same event as their karting idols and the stars of our sport.
“Adding the KPV 1 as a local option class in Phoenix is something that we have been looking to do since moving the event to PKRA,” expressed CKI’s Director of Operations Kevin Williams. “KPV 1 is a huge class out here in the western half of the United States and to allow those competitors to come and compete at one of our events is something that we look forward to. The KPV 1 class will be treated like all other classes in the CKI program and receive the same amount of quality track time and exposure as the rest.”
The KPV 1 division is a Komet Piston Port class that runs predominantly in the World Karting Association (WKA) and International Karting Federation (IKF) and is for the 8 – 11 age groups. Providing great racing action and wheel-to-wheel competition, the KPV 1 class rivals the completion of the Comer Cadet Division as up and coming racing drivers look to battle for race wins.
“P1 engines will be at the WSK event in Phoenix and we appreciate CKI including the KPV1 class as a local option,” stated Jesus Vasquez, owner and engine builder of P1 Engines. “We are prepared to supply competitive motor packages for rental to help support the event and series."
The WSK North American Series by CKI continues its six event 2010 National Schedule with the second event May 14-16, 2010 at Phoenix Kart Racing Association track in central Arizona. For entry and more information, visit www.ChampionshipKartRacing.com.
