A Daytona for the Record books!

With the 2012 WKA World Championships at Daytona behind us, we sat back to reflect on the results. L.A.D. had some really good results on both the Man Cup side and the Road Race side as we have been really seriously thinking about putting forth an effort to get our engines back on the sharp side of the grid on the Man Cup side, so what better driver to have than Nick Neri!! Nick's dad, Marty, approached us a few weeks before Daytona asking if we can supply him with the engines necessary to compete in the full list of classes they wanted to run and we were happy to do so and was happy to work with them to give Nick a chance to win every class. We prepared him a Komet KPV and a Parilla Leopard MY'09 and right out of the box showed good pace in all his classes. The air was really good (high power) thus we had some carburetion issues as he was building up his speed and ended up seizing the engine, but with the LAD trailer on the Road Race side, we were able to hone the cylinder and get him back up and running...

Nick's Man Cup spoils:
Komet PRO 1- Qual.p2/prefinal p3/final P1
Komet PRO 2- qual. P1/prefinal P2/final P2
TAG 1- qual.P15/prefinal P11/final P1
TAG 2- qual.P12/prefinal P5/final P4
Parilla 1- qual.P15/prefinal DNF (accident)/DNF (accident)
Parilla 2- qual.P7/prefinal 22 (accident)/final P9 (from the back!)

Here's a list of notable finishes our drivers had during the National Road Racing Series event:

Richie Warren
P1-Yamaha pipe medium
P2- Yamaha pipe heavy
P5- Yamaha sportsman medium

Anthony Honeywell
P1- Formula 100 Saturday

Jason Lorang
P4- Formula 100 Saturday

Scott Grenier
P2- 100cc controlled

2011 Evolution of ItalKart and a new Supersonic V
2011 marks Italkart's 16th year of chassis construction. The chassis line will see limited changes (except for the Supersonic V) due to the success of each model in 2010 and customer feedback. The Supersonic V chassis has been completely re-designed and shares many design qualities from the extremely successful Rapido V which will remain unchanged for 2011 after capturing 1st, 3rd, 5th and 6th at the 2011 SKUSA Supernationals!
