Industry News: Praga, Kartwerks and Florida Winter Tour to Sponsor Robo-Pong Sportsman Class

Praga Karts, Kartwerks USA and Florida Winter Tour have joined together to sponsor the Sportsman Class at the 10th Annual Newgy Robo-Pong 200 at New Castle Motor Speedway! The package will afford one Sportsman racer some Serious Fun in the Florida Sun!

“This is a great way to give back to the karter and give their family a fun racing vacation experience in Florida,” noted NCMP’s Mark Dismore.

One of the top finishers in the 30-lap Sportsman race will be awarded an entry in one of the three rounds of the FWT Formula Kart Racing Program! The lucky recipient will be able to choose their event from the 2014 schedule that includes stops in Homestead, Ocala and Orlando. The entry will be in the TAG Cadet class featuring the Mini-Rok powerplant.

The package includes use of a 2014 Praga Piccolo, Mini-Rok engine package, tent space, support, race entry, driver & crewmember credentials, tires, fuel and oil. Travel, food and lodging are not included in the package.

Dan Schlosser (Kartwerks USA): “Kartwerks and Praga Karts have had a fantastic season in the Sportsman ranks since the factory debuted the new Piccolo at SuperNats. As a team we have had tremendous success in just our first year of operation with the Piccolo including local, regional and National wins and Championships. We thought this would be a great way to give back to a class that has been very good to us this season. The chance to partner with Mark Dismore, Bill Wright and the Praga factory is just a tremendous opportunity as well.  We look forward to seeing one of the Midwest’s best racers take on the International field that FWT always attracts!”
