PRD Junior 1 Added to the Florida Pro Kart Series

PRD-USA, Vega Tire and the Florida Pro Kart Series are pleased to announce an exciting new class for the series.  Starting with the first race in Homestead, Fl on April 26 & 27, racers will have the opportunity to race a PRD engine for FREE.

The first 5 entries in the PRD Junior 1 class are eligible for a FREE engine rental for the weekend.  Additional entrants are eligible for a discounted rental engine at $200 for the entire weekend.

In addition, all entrants at the first event can save over $400 by purchasing a PRD engine, either before or after the event, for the discounted price of $1450.  This is a complete engine package including engine, exhaust, water and electrical systems.  A payment plan is also available for racers that want to spread out the cost of their purchase for several months.

Florida Pro Kart Series founder Glenn Biggs commented “We are very happy to add the PRD Jr 1 class on Vega FH tires to our series.  The PRD engine gives racers a great TaG package at a price $1500 less than other TaG engines.  The PRD engine racing on Vega FH tires is a proven package and a cost effective way to race.”

The new PRD Junior 1 class is for drivers from 8 to 12 years old.  This class will be part of the PRD national series and utilizes a restricted PRD 125cc TaG engine and Vega FH 4.60 tires.  This one engine will allow racers to start at 8 years old and race the same engine their entire career up through the senior classes with only a minor air cup change.

PRD engines are also eligible to race in the TaG Junior, TaG Senior and TaG Masters classes.

PRD-USA and Vega USA have added over $7500 to the prize package for the series.  Weekend class winners on a PRD engine will receive a $100 gift certificate.  The Junior 1 class point’s champion will win a FREE PRD engine.  The class point’s champion, if racing a PRD engine in all six events, will receive a FREE entry and Vega tires for the PRD/Vega Pro-Am race in California on October 10 -12.
