Series News: Canadian SKUSA Pro Tour Announced
 


Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) has added to its rebuilding process a Canadian Region – SKCAN. This series spent the past two years in the development and planning stages. It will provide a place for the Canadian racers wishing to develop their skills, apply their trade, or just have some fun under a karter friendly environment. New SKCAN Pro Tour Director, Paul Fortier heads up the new region.

“With an emphasis on Novice and Junior development and recognition while still providing for the senior levels, we feel the series will offer a well-balanced program,” said Fortier. “It is the series goal to provide a seeding ground for the future of karting. It is my sincerest wish that our children have the place to follow their dreams on their terms. SKUSA has given me the support to offer this to Canada. We’re excited about SKUSA’s new direction and the impact it will have on the racer.”

SKUSA Executive Director, Joe Janowski, expressed his enthusiasm for the new Pro Tour: “This has been a long time in the making. I think it’s great that we’re finally able to expand outside of the United States. SKCAN is a great addition to the SKUSA family. Paul has fresh ideas for this new region. We’re eager to get this started.”

Luckily, the racers in the SKCAN Pro Tour don’t have to wait too long for their first race. While run at the same facility, each event will run a different configuration.
