With the 2017 karting season all but complete after next weekend’s Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) SuperNationals, VemmeKart USA is pleased to release their 2018 livery as well as confirm planned participation in multiple national and regional level programs throughout the United States.
“We have had a huge response to the official launch of VemmeKart USA and continue to implement and develop programs for our new business,” explained Andy Gernand. “We have big plans in 2018 including participation in some of the country’s biggest karting series and events, beginning in the winter months.”
Kicking off in January, VemmeKart USA will look to compete at the Superkarts USA! Florida Winter Series program as well as the ROK Cup Promotions Florida Winter Tour. Progressing onwards in the 2018 season, VemmeKart USA will kick off their summer season with the SKUSA Pro Tour program as well as select World Karting Association (WKA) Manufacturers Cup, United States Pro Kart Series (USPKS) and select Route 66 Sprint Series and local Midwest club events.
Gernand continued, “While we look to promote the brand through on track results, we also look to establish and define a dealer network throughout North America. I believe we have top quality equipment and partnered with the right drivers in the Mini, Junior and Senior divisions; our trackside support efforts will produce results in the upcoming season.”
Braden Eves has shown the speed of the VemmeKart in the Senior ranks with victories in SKUSA competition as well as race wins and championships in the WKA program. Chase Gardner has been the man to beat in the Texas Pro Kart Challenge Mini Swift class aboard his VemmeKart. Colin Neal topped the blocks in WKA action and has been a threat in USPKS races throughout 2017. VemmeKart USA will look to build on these results in 2018 as they expand their race program.
To show commitment to their on track efforts, the VemmeKart Italy factory, in conjunction with VemmeKart USA and the Argentinian importer Ruben D’Agostino, will enter nine VemmeKart branded drivers at this coming weekends Superkarts! USA SuperNationals. Taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center adjacent to the Westgate Hotel and Casino, VemmeKart will look to strike gold in Sin City.
