Adding more drivers to their already star-studded lineup, Birel ART North America and PSL Karting confirms Jake French as an Official Driver. Set to take on the ROK Cup USA ROK the RIO and the Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) SuperNationals, French will race out of the PSL Karting program as he focuses solely on the gearbox categories at the two Las Vegas events. Over the events, the aim of his arrival is also to support and assist younger aspiring PSL Karting professional kart racers into future growth.

“We added Ben Cooper to our lineup yesterday and are happy to confirm Jake French today,” explained Birel ART’s Dominic Labrecque. “Ben is a proven champion and will be a threat in the Senior ranks while Jake brings us another weapon in our arsenal of shifterkart drivers.”

Respected as a perennial frontrunner in the gearbox classes, French brings his natural skills and abilities to the Birel ART North America outfit. Claiming multiple national race wins and championships in his career, French looks to add even more results to his growing resume in Las Vegas and onwards into the 2020 race season.

“PSL Karting’s professionalism is second to none, their preparation is some of the best and they leave no stone unturned in their quest to win,” stated French “We had a great test at the Speedsportz Race Park, and I can’t wait to take my first green flag with the team later this month.”

Labrecque continued, “We completed a test with Jake in Texas a few days ago, and he impressed us with not only his on-track skills, but his feedback and work ethic off the track. We have always had him on our radar, and it is better to have him in our program, rather than racing against him. Welcome to the team Jake!”

Birel ART and Jake French will take on the 2019 ROK Cup USA ROK the RIO event during the week of October 30th until November 2nd before shifting gears and focus to the 23rd annual Superkarts! USA SuperNationals from November 20th-24th. With race team, arrive and drive, tent and transport and product support and sales available, interested parties are asked to contact Dominic Labrecque at Birel ART North America.
