Praga Karting sees Lammers Victorious in First Race
Karting champion finds success with Praga Kart
30 October 2011, Ortona, Italy —
It was an exciting weekend for karting champion Bas Lammers, who in his first race driving for Praga Karting, finished 1st in the KZ1 class at the WSK Final Cup. Lammers recently switched from the Intrepid chassis to Praga chassis, and this changeover included several factors: a physical move to the Praga tent situated next to its Intrepid partner, use of the newly acquired New Zealand mechanic Josh Hart, and full service and support from the Praga karting team’s equipment and inventory. It seems that these changes yielded positive results all around. Even with strong the competition, the Dutchman pushed through and emerged victorious in this karting race.
Lammers will finish out this season with Praga, competing at the SKUSA SuperNationals this November in Las Vegas, Nevada, as well as participating in the Karters Division of the Red Bull Kart Fight Powered by Rotax, which is the race held in conjunction with the Performance Racing Industry trade show held in Orlando, Florida at the beginning of December. For both of these races, Lammers will drive the new 2012 Praga chassis homologation, which will give the karting world a sneak preview of what Praga has in store for next year.
All this is simply the build up to a thrilling 2012 karting season that will see Lammers head up the soon-to-be-formed Praga Driver Program, which will be created as a complement to the already established Intrepid Driver Program. The Praga Driver Program will support karting drivers at the international level, such as Lammers, but will also be a stepping stone for many of the promising karting drivers Praga already has at the national level on its two Czech teams, Praga Sumako and RF Kart.
