Jake Klarich has returned to Lenzo/Luxor kart and will race the brand in the WA KZ2 series and selected TaG 125 events.
Klarich, from JK Motorsport, will also be a distributor and ambassador for the product in Western Australia, offering Lenzo and Luxor kart product with trackside support, plus driver training across many categories.
"The addition of Jake brings a professional and talented driver to our brand who has had extensive experience racing karts at the top level in Australia and Europe, also branching off last racing season to race cars" Lenzo Kart Australia's Brendan Shugg said in a press release.
“I’m very excited to be working with Lenzo Kart Australia once again" Klarich said.
"In the past we had a great team and had some very good results for the manufacturer. With the first round of the WA KZ Series just around the corner, a lot of time and preparation has been put into getting everything ready for the race and I’m really looking forward to this coming racing season.”
"Jake and I have a history that dates back to 2011 where he first competed for us in the CIK Stars of Karting Series in the Pro Junior KF3 Category" Shugg added.
"Jake went on to finish 3rd in the Championship with two round wins and two State Championships. We are very happy to be forming this collaboration and to be working with Jake once again. Jake has some big plans for his new venture as JK Motorsport."
Those plans include building up a race team through the year with the long-term aim of competing nationaly in the Australian Kart Championship and offering customers the opportunity to race internationally.
