F-Series Steps It Up and Gains Big Support in 2014

Gearup Challenge logoThe off season has been a busy one for us, due to bringing the F-Series up to our own expectations. State rulebook approvals, personnel training and overall image improvements have presented a fair amount of challenges but we are happy to report all is well and we will take a huge leap forward. The 2014 Gearup Challenge will also see a number of fantastic aesthetic upgrades that promises to give us a really cool atmosphere!!

We are super excited for 2014 as four very reputable companies have chosen to call the F-Series home. European tent manufacture Gatel Tent Solution has signed on for the coming season and will be the official tent supplier of the F-Series. Known for outfitting the top teams in racing we are honored to have them part of our program.

Adam Petitt of Compressed Air Equipment is very pleased to be the title sponsor for the new Formula R, we share the same vision and look forward to growing together. Compressed Air Equipment is centrally located in the tri-state area and offers not just industrial equipment but also a variety of air products to outfit kart racers.

Kartwerkz Inc. owner Jerry White has made a good name for himself by manufacturing quality karting accessories. We see his involvement in the series a big benefit to our community, not just financially but also by providing quality US build karting products.

Last but not least Phil Pignataro of Custom Art has come forward for 2014 to lend his talents to our champions by commemorating all of them with a fantastic rendering of their valiant championship effort. His artworks will on display at all of our 2014 events.

We have been working very hard on our prize package that will be revealed on 3/20/14. This will be our best prize package to date as our supporters have really given their all to make the F-Series an exciting place to race. We are extremely happy that our long standing partners have decided to continue working with us, to make not just a better series but also grow the sport. Among those partners are Bertil Roos, Contemporary Mercedes Benz, KartingConnect.com, OTKUSA and MG Tires . Of course none of this would be possible without the huge support coming from the shops and distributors working within the series. A huge thank you goes out to Checkered Motorsport, DRT Racing, RTR Engines, Full Tilt Racing, Force One, JD Motorsport, Eurokart, Kompetitive Kartsport and Kart Attack.

As most of our racers already know we try hard to make the series more financially feasible. No exception as we continue to work every angle while trying to bring up the professionalism of our program. One such benefit is in the form of the 2014 season pass as it offers big cost savings while enhancing your experience. New for this season we have negotiated special rates for our customers booking with Holiday Inn Express & Suites. We do believe our biggest savings come from our predominant single engine class structure, that is virtually unchanged from the previous season. As well as offering one of the most durable yet cost effective tires on the market. We hope that our effort and the fierce competition seen in our last season will bring an even more exciting championship to the F-Series. We cannot stress enough that everyone is welcome from pro to novice as we would like to continue with our main objective and that is to provide fun and fierce competition.
