Set to present a strong and talented driver lineup to the annual SuperKarts! USA (SKUSA) SuperNationals, IPK North America and Leading Edge Motorsports have confirmed participation of three European factory drivers. Looking to claim SuperNats glory in Las Vegas in November, Jeremy Iglesias, Francesco Celenta and Alex Lloyd will make the international trip to compete on the grandest of stages.
“I am really pleased, and proud, to have such a group of talented drivers in the IPK North America and Leading Edge Motorsports program,” explained Greg Bell. “We are putting the finishing touches on a strong contingent and should have between ten and fifteen drivers fighting for wins across several different SKUSA classes.”
Iglesias and Celenta will enter their talents in the Pro Shifter category with Iglesias aboard a Formula K chassis and Celenta piloting a Praga. Lloyd will throw his hat into the mix in the stout X30 Junior field as he looks to take his Formula K branded chassis to the front. All three drivers are European race winners and multi-time champions in some of the most competitive karting series in the world, but they all want to win the ‘Big One’.
Bell continued, “I am confident that all three drivers can challenge for the victory, or at least podiums, in their respective classes. The IPK line of products is proven around the world, but it is now time to win the biggest race of them all.”
This will be Jeremy Iglesias’ second event in Las Vegas this November and when he is not behind the wheel of his shifter kart, he will be helping the rest of the IPK North America and Leading Edge Motorsports competitors through driver coaching, data analysis and chassis setup and tuning advice.
Stay tuned for future news and driver announcements from IPK North America for all upcoming events in Las Vegas.
