2020 SEASON: READY TO START

After defining the starting line up and the races calendar for the 2020 season of the Tony Kart Racing Team, we are ready to get on track for all the main international events of the 60 Mini, OKJ, OK and KZ /KZ2 classes.

Everything is ready for a new, intense karting season. The Tony Kart Racing Team is looking forward to getting on track and entering the challenge in all races for prestigious results. The calendar is full of appointments, with all CIK-FIA and WSK traditional competitions and this year also RGMMC race meetings, besides the classic Winter Cup in Lonato.

Big and competitive the team bearing our colours and relying on the performances of the Tony Kart Racer 401R chassis for the KZ/KZ2, OK, OKJ categories and on the new Tony Kart Rookie 2020 for the 60 Mini CIK-FIA class.
As always, the Vortex engines of the OTK Kart Group will equip our chassis.

Concerning the list of official drivers, Simo Puhakka will be representing us again in the shifter classes. Together with him, in the KZ races of the CIK-FIA calendar, also Pedro Hiltbrand will get on track, joining the Tony Kart Racing Team during the last stage of last season and ready to redouble his engagement taking part in all OK competitions too.
Here, Pedro will meet again his teammates of last year: the current world champion Lorenzo Travisanutto and Joseph Turney, together with the new -entry Diego Contecha, at his debut in the category.

In OKJ we will again be on track with Aiden Neate, racing this year together with the Pole Karol Pasiewicz, the German Maxim Rehm and the Swiss Eron Rexhepi.

The 60 Mini group is also big, where the American Kai Sorensen, back from the recent success at the last SKUSA Supernationals, will join the team together with the confirmed drivers Jimmy Helias, Andreas Cardenas, Jules Caranta and James Egozi.

These are the already confirmed drivers, but other negotiations are being defined and soon we will make further news regarding the official line-up of our team official.
