PSL Montreal at Circuit ICAR


The World’s #1 CRG dealer is expanding its empire once again as PSL Montreal is set for Grand Opening Celebrations this coming May 1st. Based at Circuit ICAR, PSL Montreal will be managed by racing veteran Louis-Philippe Gelinas and will offer the extensive product line and expert track support system that has come to be synonymous with PSL Karting.

“Since the opening of ICAR in 2008, one of my responsibilities has been the karting track; its race karts, rental karts, and the karting school,” said Gelinas in announcing the news. “ICAR has offered the PSL line of products since that time, but for 2011 ICAR has shifted its focus to the race car track and bigger motorsports events, offering the opportunity to rent space and manage the karting operations. I had already developed a very strong relationship with the PSL Head Office, so I jumped at the opportunity to open PSL Montreal located at Circuit ICAR!”

Along with Gelinas, race technician Mathieu Demers will be on hand to assist racing customers ranging in age from 8 to 88! PSL Montreal will offer CRG race karts, parts and services, along with an Arrive-and-Drive race kart rental program and transport to the Official PSL paddock tent at all PSL supported race events. There the PSL Montreal customers will join the rest of the PSL racing family, one that continues to grow in size season by season.

“The expansion of the PSL network is part of a new CRG development program we have,” said company president Dominic Labrecque. “Last year we ended up the biggest CRG distributor in the world and we are now working to build upon that. Having a PSL store at ICAR is a big plus for our customers that come from Montreal and a great fit for PSL, as ICAR is right now one of the best motorsport complexes in Canada.”

With Head Offices in Trois-Rivieres, PSL now distributes to the Maritime provinces through PSL Atlantic, Ontario through PSL Ontario located at Mosport, and now Montreal and Western Quebec through PSL Montreal located at ICAR. It is one of the World’s premiere karting operations, and one that continues to find success in record-breaking numbers.

In 2010 PSL captured four Canadian National Championships, two US National Championships, and class championships in the Florida Winter Tour, Eastern Canadian Championship, Western Canadian Championship, Pan American Championship, and at home in Quebec. It sent nine drivers from three different countries to the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals, and is already working on repeating the feats.

In 2011, PSL has already qualified four drivers from three different countries for the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals, and won class championships in the Gatorz Challenge of the Americas and the Florida Winter Tour.
