Brian and Cory Milne will head up the new Aluminos Denver operation to service the Rocky Mountain market area
The Aluminos chassis brand has built a solid reputation in less than a year, hitting the United States karting scene by storm. The northern California-based operation is now expanding their efforts east, partnering up with S1 Pro driver Cory Milne and his father/tuner Brian Milne to open a Denver-based shop – Aluminos Denver. The new business officially opened April 1 after a culmination of several months of discussions between Aluminos owner Rob Soares and the Milnes.
“We have been talking with Rob for months on how we could team up with him and his race team to provide top notch race support to the Colorado-based shifter community,” stated Brian Milne of Aluminos Denver. “We have been racing under the Aluminos flag for over five years, as both Cory and I have learned a significant amount working with Rob, George Tavares the engine guru, along with driver coaches Tom Dyer and Fritz Leesmann. Competing under the Aluminos tent has given me a broader understanding of what it takes to be the top karting team in the United States. Make no mistake about it, Rob and his team has shifterkarts down to a science, using state of the art data collection, hours of chassis testing and engine tuning. Our goal is to utilize Rob’s team and expand upon it here in the Denver market. Team members from California will be available to Aluminos Denver for chassis setup, engine tuning and team equipment. We will have access to the extremely competitive Aluminos chassis, driver coaching techniques and the best engine program around. Colorado has some of the best drivers in the country and now will have access to the best karting team in the country.”
When asked about the partnership, Aluminos owner Rob Soares was thrilled about the new venture. “We are excited to team up with Cory and Brian. They are dedicated to our team, understand our culture and techniques, and bottom line is they want to win. We have worked with them both over the years and we have a great working relationship. Our vision is to bring both teams together at all Superkarts! USA Pro Tour events, where the Aluminos Denver squad members will join forces under the Aluminos banner to create an even stronger team for these increasingly competitive races. It makes sense for us to help the Colorado community while bringing our knowledge and race craft to the Rocky Mountain region.”
Aluminos Denver will be present at this weekend’s Rocky Mountain ProKart Challenge at the Grand Junction Motor Speedway in western Colorado.
