Industry News: Benik Kart Launched in North America
User friendly chassis set to make history in North American karting
Successfully making their international debut at the Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) in Las Vegas, Nevada, Benik Kart is set to take the North American karting community by storm. Developed and distributed by long time karting industry members Nick Mitchell and Ben Cruttenden, the Benik Kart will see a surge in participation at high profile events moving forward in 2014.
“We have been working with several manufacturers for the last five years and we have yet to find a small chassis that caters to our needs,” explained Nick Mitchell. “Ben has been working with drivers in Europe over the past six months testing in various conditions with different size drivers and we are very pleased with the results. We are excited about the future.”
Debuting in Florida earlier this season in the hands of the young champion Lachlan DeFrancesco, Benik Kart could be seen at the front of the field. Claiming pole positions and main event victories throughout the state, Benik Kart made their international debut at the SuperNationals. Showing speed in all conditions, the Benik Kart will definitely be seen at the front of the field.”
Mitchell continued, “Unlike other brands, the Benik Kart is included with all the necessary upgrades. Angled steering wheel hub, Tillett seat and magnesium engine mount is standard on all our chassis providing a complete package for our customers with no additional add-ons.”
Cruttenden added, “One of the main reasons of developing our own brand was because we wanted to build something that is very user friendly and caters to a wide spectrum of drivers from novice to national and international level”
With the 2013 racing season complete, Benik Kart owners will now shift their focus to 2014. With planned competition at several high profile series and events, the new squad will kick their season off at the Formula Kart Productions Florida Winter Tour. With two drivers confirmed for the campaign, Benik Kart is looking to add several more competitors to their line up. Any interested parties are asked to contact Nick Mitchell or Ben Cruttenden for more information.
