Brendan Nelson will race for Arrow in this years CIK Stars of Karting series. The Queensland based 19-year-old will represent Arrow and premium Arrow retailer Kaos Karting in the KZ2 class of CIK, plus the Rotax Pro Tour and state and national events.

“Brendan has an impressive track record, driving skill, focus to succeed and together we will make a great team,” said Drew Price, managing director of Arrow Racing Karts.
A consistent and versatile performer in the kart, Nelson and his team plan to build on past success which includes wins last year in Rotax Heavy at the NSW State Titles, Queensland Closed Titles and Pro Tour Newcastle, winning the Supercheap series, Queensland Closed Titles and the Southern Star series in Clubman, 3rd place at the Nationals and Vic Open in Leopard.

He will continue his very successful association with Col Watts' Raceprep Team for the Rotax events. They go into 2011 leading the Pro Tour points after having won both Rotax point score meetings so far.
Nelson is excited by the opportunity to join forces with Arrow and forge a long-lasting relationship with its team with support provided by Darren Hossack, Shane Price and Adam Klunyk.
“Since my first days on track from the age of 11, I have hoped to one day secure a factory drive. I am really excited by the prospect of reaching that goal with Australia’s number one race team, Arrow,” said Nelson.
Nelson will debut at the upcoming round 1 of Rotax Pro Tour at Todd Road at the end of January after taking delivery of one of the very first X1E chassis’ available, hot off the production line.
