SIMA to Host 1st Region 6 Gold Cup Event


SIMA is set to host its first Western Washington Region 6 Gold-Cup event this September 16th – 19th. The event will be a double point race (for IAME Cup competitors), raising the stakes as drivers battle it out for the Italian Motors prize of a trip to compete in the SKUSA Supernationals. In addition, all participants of the race gain a better chance of winning the engine giveaway at the end of year banquet. Class structure will be as per past Gold Cup events.

The SuperNationals has become the most prestigious and well known kart event in North America. Since 1997, the Italian Motors team has maintained a strong presence at the SuperNationals and plan to continue their success in 2010. The lucky winners of the trip to compete in the SKUSA Supernationals prize will receive a brand new Italkart Chassis/Parilla Engine Package to use for the event and transportation of the kart. All other costs associated with the trip will be the driver’s responsibility. In order to be eligible for this prize, competitors must participate at the SIMA Gold Cup Event.

Although Italian Motors has spent a great deal of time making its mark on the National scene, the company hasn’t forgotten their roots. Italian Motors continues to play a large role in building and strengthening the sport of karting in Western Canada and throughout Western Washington. In appreciation to those who have supported the Region 6 Gold Cup series IM will be organizing 3 draws for IAME Parilla engine packages; one Gazelle, one Jr. Leopard and one Sr. Leopard. So far every Region 6 Gold Cup attended has granted each driver with an entry for the draw. By entering in the SIMA’s Gold Cup weekend your chances double as an additional entry is granted to each driver.

SIMA, located only 2 minutes from the US/Canadian border crossing opened just over a month ago and since then has received nothing but positive feedback. SIMA’s onsite kart shop, IMUSA, is the North American distributor for major brands such as Italkart, IAME Parilla, TM, MIR Racewear, Arroxx Racewear and Bell Helmets. The showroom is fully stocked with chassis and engine spare parts, fuel, lubricants, racewear as well as full kart and engine packages. SIMA Café is the classy Italian inspired coffee shop situated at the corner of the building with a great view of the track. The café will be open throughout the weekend, offering fresh baked goods, specialty coffee, ice cream, sandwiches and chilled beverages.
