press release

Wellington's Karl Wilson is the latest Kiwi karter to take on a major event overseas, the reigning New Zealand SuperKart champion and Grand Prix winner in the United States this weekend contesting the annual Stars of SuperKarts invitational meeting at the Laguna Seca circuit in northern California.

Over the past two weekends Auckland-based international Daniel Bray has competed at the annual World Cup for KZ2 meeting in Italy, and the biggest contingent so far - eight drivers - contested Australia's annual Rotax National Championship meeting in Dubbo in inland New South Wales.

A field of up to 40 high-powered SuperKarts will compete at the meeting with qualifying today (Friday), a preliminary race on Saturday morning and the main event, the Stars of SuperKarts race, on Sunday afternoon.
