Well maybe it's not Spring Break but the Racelab will be taking off and closing from February 27 and will be back at it March 11 just in time for some pre season testing and of course round 1 of the WCKC Championship in Chilliwack. If you need to contact the Lab over that period feel free to email
This holiday season brought the Formula K factory a gift in the way of World Cup Champion and Supernationals Champion Bas Lammers. Lammers formerly of Intrepid was looking to get into a different situation for 2014 and looked no further than Cash Van Belle of Formula K. The team started their testing program today in Lonato,Italy. For those interested in reading a great article on Bas joining the FK squad you can download a copy of TKart Magazine here http://www.mag3.it/Numero.aspx?id=59
We were recently on a Canadian Karting site (canadiankartingnews.com) where we came across this video and felt it was a good piece to put out there for those who may be considering the sport of kart racing and looking for a cost effective entry level point. In eastern Canada the Briggs LO206 Racing program has taken off and will continue to do so with it's "bang for the buck" offering. This program allows virtually anyone to get into this sport as it is low cost, and low maintenance but more importantly offers such tight racing that is not found in any other category. It is a fully national recognized category that is deserving of a place at the ASN Canadian National championships every year and is contested by many of the countries top racers.
In BC we are surely going to see a growth in this class as it is already gaining some momentum however we feel that we are not even at the tip of the iceberg with this formula. This is the racing machine most people having been wishing existed for years. It offers strong power delivery, fantastic wheel to wheel racing, stock engine with sealed cases so no "race prepping" can occur. The maintenance on these engines is a little as could even be possible in a racing machine now rivalling that of bicycles. The Racelab will be working to promote this program throughout 2014 with turn-key packages that will be affordably priced and will be top level materials without compromise.
If you are new to karting give this video a good look as you may find this answers the questions as to "how to get started".
Formula K have recently leaked out some images of their new look for 2014. While the Maranello based team makes some major moves in 2014 they felt updating the look and image was an important step. A new Sticker kit is the most obvious of changes, one of which makes the kart look a little more aggressive and definitely updated. The Kit is not the only change as the side pods are now a lighter sleeker style pod as well a new steering wheel has been released. The steering wheel is much thicker and offers superior grip to most other wheels on the market.
