MG Tires Extends Partnership with Superkarts! USA in Conjunction with Release of New Spec Race Tire
Tuesday, 11 January 2011 00:00
Continuing what has been a prosperous partnership for many years, MG Tires and Superkarts! USA would like to jointly announce that they have extended their spec tire relationship for 2011 and beyond. In addition to the Brazilian manufacturer serving once again as the official tire for all SKUSA events, including the second edition of the Pro Tour and the company’s growing number of regional series, the 2011 season will mark the debut of the new specially branded MG-SK ‘SKUSA (white)’ tire, which will be utilized in all official Superkarts! USA events (except for the TaG Cadet class, which will remain on the MG-HZ ‘red’ tires). The new MG-SK tire is based on the proven and popular FZ compound, with only a small compound change put into effect to extend the durability of the tire. The new tire also comes with the official ‘SKUSA’ markings in the mold, further cementing the connection between the two companies.

“Our long relationship with Tom Kutscher and Superkarts! USA is extremely important to us and we’re very happy to have been able to continue our partnership,” offers Wagner Rossi, the owner of WR Motorsports, the North American importer for MG Tires.  “We are excited to see SKUSA’s continuing growth with their Pro Tour and, of course, the SuperNationals in Las Vegas. In working with Tom for 2011, we have made a slight compound adjustment at his request to provide their racers with increased durability in the new MG-SK, and we know that everyone will be very pleased with this year’s race tire.”

MG Tires has been the official tire of SKUSA since 2005, and is utilized in the organization’s regional and national programs, as well as by many clubs and tracks around North America. The new MG-SK ‘SKUSA’ compound is the next step for both the racing organization and the tire manufacturer, as they aim to provide the best product on the market for the racers.  Superkarts! USA will act as the official distributor for the new spec tire and will work closely with the shops, teams and competitors that support SKUSA to make this the best program possible.

“We’re thrilled to have been able to come to a win-win agreement with MG Tires to extend our relationship, as we know that our customers believe in the product,” said Tom Kutscher, Superkarts! USA President. “I wanted to provide more durability in our tire for 2011 in keeping with our goal of being the best value in karting. MG is a great company to work with and we’re really looking forward to the new year with this new ‘SKUSA’ tire.”

Superkarts! USA has now taken delivery of the first shipment of the new MG-SK tire, which will make its official competition debut at the opening round of the ProKart Challenge South series, which will hit the ground running at Adams Kart Track in Riverside, CA on February 4-5, 2011.
