Continuing to add to their growing driver lineup, PSL Karting and BirelART North America are pleased to welcome John Burke to their program. As a multi-time race winner in 2020, including the United States Pro Kart Series IAME Pro Junior Champion, Burke will join PSL Karting effective immediately as he fills his 2021 calendar with major national championships beginning in March.

“We are pleased to welcome John to our program and look forward to the success we will have together,” explained PSL Karting’s Dominic Labrecque. “John has been a force on the national scene for quite some time, and we feel he will fit in very well with our program and complement our already established team drivers. He is a proven winner and though he has had a little bit of a rough start to the 2021 season, we are aiming to help him find his way back to the top step of the podium and have confidence in his on track abilities.”

Residing in Texas but competing across North America, Burke will join PSL Karting and the BirelART product line for the 2021 United States Pro Kart Series (USPKS) and Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) Pro Tour, both of which commence in March, as well as finish the final round of the ROK Cup USA Florida Winter Tour.

“I am looking forward to my new home at PSL Karting and can’t wait to get started,” added Burke. “The BirelART is one of the most well-known brands in karting, and I know I can assist them in getting them where they want to be. The PSL Karting setup is one of the best in the paddock, and I will wear the BirelART colors proud. I would like to thank Dominic, Kevin and Coy for having the faith and believing in me and I will not let them down.”

“John is a very talented driver, and we believe that his aggression, commitment to success and drive to win fits the mold of our program,” added Kevin King. “Not only will he be a leader in the Senior ranks, he will also step into a role model position for our Junior competitors.”
