There will be a few more red and white go-karts on the grid in 2017. Trevor Wickens, manager of Maranello North America, has shifted gears for the new year, adopting the BirelART brand for his race team and chassis dealership.

Wickens, who has operated as Maranello North America for much of the last decade, has severed his ties with the Italian chassis manufacturer.

His new venture with BirelART will operate as Prime Powerteam and his race team drivers will race aboard BirelART chassis’ after striking a deal with Ronni Sala and Dominic Labrecque of BirelART and BirelART North America.

The first event for the rebranded Prime Powerteam race team will be the 2017 Florida Winter Tour in Homestead, USA. There are still some Arrive and Drive spots left on the race team. Don’t hesitate to inquire immediately.

Prime Powerteam will also now act as the Ontario distributor for the BirelART chassis line and will work with PSL Karting for the Canadian and North American market.
