Two times Stars of Karting ICC National Champion Alex Speed
comes back to his passion. After temporarily retiring from competitions in 2005 when he won his second consecutive ICC title to pursue his college education, Alex has now decided his come back with MRP-Birel America, the team that helped him take his last crown. He won’t wait for the next season though! He will participate in the Stars of Karting National Finals in Las Vegas on 21st October, and the SKUSA SuperNationals on 18th November. Nick Halen will also join MRP-Birel America from PCH Motorsports, and Mike Speed will watch over the team’s ICC efforts.
‘I won many times with this team and I trust Birel and MRP competence and dedication’ says Alex. ‘I did some tests with the 2007 chassis and I had a good feeling. I also managed to be fast, and now we’ll concentrate on giving 100% in the next two events, but mostly we’ll work on our competitiveness for next season.’
Chris Lobaugh, MRP-Birel America Engineer is confident. “Our budget is modest in comparison to others, but we all worked hard to come to an agreement that works and we hope to continue to work together in 2008 as well.”
