press release

Bronson raced in the United States in October 2006, the highlight being a victory on the Arizona Karting Association dirt speedway, but also included his first racing in a Junior Rotax and at another meeting, in a Junior Leopard, both being in the Junior Tag class.

“We were looking at the possibility of going over and doing more karting in 2009” Bronson said, “when a friend there suggested looking into racing the Legends cars. These cars are very similar to the Aussie Racing Cars and in the process of making enquiries, I was offered the drive in the Spencer Clark Driven Foundation car for CRG Motorsports in Las Vegas, whose operation manages a number of cars in several classes on the short circuit speedways around Las Vegas.”

It came up in a bit of a rush but the opportunity being what it is and the prospect of higher flight prices and the dollar etc. makes it worth the effort to go now. “The whole idea of this trip is quite exciting and I am eagerly looking forward to the experience” said an enthusiastic  Bronson “we will have a day in  the car prior to our first race.”

Next kart meeting for Bronson is the City of Wodonga Titles on June 14 and 15 at Wodonga, which is the biggest meeting of the year in the region and Bronson will be racing in 2 classes, including the Junior National Light class which he won in this event last year. Big fields – including national and international representatives - and sizzling racing, is expected as the top point scoring junior will receive $2000 and top scoring senior $3000.

Couldn’t do it without the following sponsors and supporters, including Kart Equip, HJM Race Engines, Rev Arena Karts, Churchill Transport, Doc Pearson, Back Straight Massage, Kev Mullarvey, Morgiana Beef, Cabonne Honey, Bushranger Kart Team USA and Jayfields Nursery.
