Superkarts! USA and Alpinestars Announce Strategic Partnership for 2019
Tuesday, 13 November 2018 22:47

Superkarts! USA today announced a new partnership with industry leading racewear brand Alpinestars, which will see the renowned name become the ‘official race gear of SKUSA.’ The move underscores a newfound commitment to the sport of karting by Alpinestars, in addition to their existing motorsports programs.

SKUSA shares the excitement of the collaboration, and more importantly the benefits it will offer racers. The partnership will usher in a renewed focus from Alpinestars’ dealers to activate and service every SKUSA ProTour event with on-site support. Participants have been ill served by companies in the past, with no real means to purchase safety equipment at events. Local Alpinestars dealers will be on-hand at each ProTour race with ample Alpinestars product for sale.

For over 20 years, Superkarts! USA has been part of the sport of karting in the United States, and the organization formed its own Hall of Fame in 2016 to begin honoring those who have played key roles in its history. This year, SKUSA is proud to announce that the late Fausto Vitello will be inducted into the Hall of Fame to honor his tremendous contributions to not only the organization, but to karting as a whole. Vitello, who passed away from a heart attack in 2006, was the founder of Trackmagic Racing Karts, the San Francisco-based chassis manufacturer that pushed the envelope for American kart builders through 100% commitment to innovation and its culture. Vitello will be joined in the Hall of Fame by SKUSA’s own Stan Bryniarski, who has been a cornerstone workhorse and crusader of the organization for 20 years as a Regional Director, Race Director and now, the current National Director of Operations.
