“Brand continues to shine throughout North America”

Ft. Lauderdale, FL – May 12, 2015 – Capping off a successful opening quarter to the 2015 karting season, the BENIK Kart brand shone brightly in California, Florida and Mexico taking several high profile victories. With success in regional, national and international karting events, BENIK kart has quickly become one of the quickest and most successful brands in today’s North American karting scene.

With wins at the Los Angeles Kart Club (LAKC), Homestead Karting Championship and the national championship in Mexico, BENIK Kart has added to their already astounding resume.

In ROK Cup USA competition, BENIK Kart once again flexed their muscles in the Vortex Mini ROK class with Lachlan DeFrancesco and Alessandro Famularo behind the wheel. DeFrancesco would score the fastest lap of the race and lead more than half of the main event before a mechanical failure would relegate him back to the sixth position. Famularo would drive his way to a podium position as he managed to secure a second place result. Tyler Maxson and James Egozi would also pilot the BENIK brand with Maxson showing great speed throughout the weekend and Egozi claiming the checkers in the Vortex Micro ROK division.

Traveling north to the GoPro Motorplex in Mooresville, North Carolina, BENIK Kart claimed a trio of podiums including a third place result on Saturday and a second place finish on Sunday, both in the Vortex Mini ROK division.

“The BENIK kart is proving to be very good in all conditions,” explained BENIK Kart Co-Owner Nick Mitchell. “Our brand has been at the front of the field in wet and dry weather action as well as in the desert heat in very tricky conditions.”

Traveling across the United States to the Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) Fikse Pro Tour, BENIK Kart would place four drivers in the top-six in the opening round with all drivers competing in the IAME TaG Cadet division. UK’s Wesley Mason was the best of the four BENIK drivers crossing the stripe in second. Sunday would see the BENIK brand and DeFrancesco lead the entire main event only to come home second and fourth in the end.
