Pro Juniors To Get Some Smart Devices

press release

Pro Junior (KF3) drivers in the CIK Stars of Karting Series will be vying for more than just victory in the 2012 championship courtesy of a great incentive from the team at SmartDevice.

During each of the five rounds next year, there will be a 16GB BlackBerry PlayBook (RRP $399) presented to a selected driver based on their ‘powerful’ performance.

Built to perform, the BlackBerry PlayBook helps transform the way you work and play by combining the features you need with a powerful, ultra-portable design you want.

Weighing only 400 grams, the BlackBerry PlayBook supports up to 1080p video playback. It also features a 3megapixel front-facing camera for video chatting over Wi-Fi and a rear-facing 5megapixel camera, both of which can record 1080p video.

The SmartDevice Powerful Award is not one that will necessarily go to a driver who has finished on the podium either. It could be a driver who has shown significant improvement from round to round, a driver who has moved through the field or simply someone who showed good speed but was unlucky across the event.

“At SmartDevice we’re always looking at opportunities where we can promote the BlackBerry product and the CIK Stars of Karting Series is a great opportunity for us to do this with,” said SmartDevice’s Brian Harris.

“While everyone wants to win every time they hit the track it’s not always possible, so this is where the SmartDevice Powerful Award comes into play – it rewards the driver who has put in a great performance but might not necessarily have won the round.”

CIK Stars of Karting Series Co-ordinator, Peter Galvin, is looking forward to seeing the Pro Junior competitors battle for the SmartDevice Powerful Award.

“As a series, we’ve worked very hard on providing opportunities for not only our competitors but also businesses such as SmartDevice, we are delighted to announce this new incentive,” said Galvin.

“There’s some great young talent coming through the ranks and I’m really looking forward to the Pro Junior drivers battling it out for the SmartDevice Powerful Award in 2012.”

The 2012 CIK Stars of Karting Series kicks off at the Bolivar Raceway on February 25/26.
