COMPKART Takes On Le Mans!

On the eve of the third round of the CIK-FIA European Championships held at the famed circuit in Le Mans, France the COMPKART team’s final preparations are fully underway.  With three international events already completed in 2017, the staff has been working relentlessly to prepare for this particularly well-attended round.  Not only will the team work with newly developed engine materials, but the team’s core drivers, Dante Yu and Nicholas d’Orlando will be joined by teammate Austin Garrison.  Garrison, no stranger to winning at the highest level will work to further deepen the brands attack in Le Mans.

“Without question we have achieved all the initial goals with our European program to date, most notably when Dante Yu took the fastest time in the heat races in a trick circuit at the Museo y Fernando Alonso circuit proving our materials capability. Now we will look to push our final efforts further and make some solid results, of course with over 90 drivers in the OK category the challenge will be intense.” – J3 Management

COMPKART drivers will continue their attack aboard the successful Covert 3.0-17R model chassis powered by factory TM racing engines and shod with Le Cont tries to complete the stunning and fast combination.  Each driver will be coupled with experienced technicians and lead by the management of J3 Competition with the full disposal of the brands engineered components and tuning solutions.
