Tearing up the ranks on the Canadian karting scene, 13-year-old Anthony Martella will be back on track this weekend, but this time in Wisconsin. Set to tackle the Briggs & Stratton Motorplex on the grounds of the famed Road America in beautiful Elkhart Lake, Martella will pilot a Racing Edge Motorsports (REM) prepared and D2 Motors powered Kosmic chassis as he does battle in the X30 Pro Junior category.
“Anthony has been performing well and moving up the grid each and every race in his first year in junior two-cycle racing,” expressed REM’s Kevin Monteith. “Anthony is a Canadian National Champion in the Briggs Junior Light class and is quickly becoming a force across North America. He is putting in the work both on and off the track and his results resume is growing.”
Looking to elevate his game and gain additional national level experience, Martell will race in the remaining United States Pro Kart Series (USPKS) race in Wisconsin before competing at New Castle Motorsports Park later this year in the same series, ROK Cup Promotions ROK Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada and the ROK Cup SuperFinal in Italy.
“I am excited to get back behind the wheel,” added Anthony Martella. “Unfortunately, at our last race, I was involved in an incident and was injured. It was gut-wrenching to sit on the sidelines and watch my peers race. Since then, I have recovered fully and been training hard for what I hear is a difficult and physical layout in Wisconsin.”
Martella continued, “I need to thank NIN Transport for all their help and support to date this season as well as REM and D2 Motors for the best equipment a driver can ask for. I have a great team behind me and great supporters, and I can’t wait to make them all proud in Wisconsin.”
