World champion Danilo Rossi brand continues expansion across United States thanks to Northeast-based operation
HUDSON, NEW HAMPSHIRE (January 24, 2013) – The DR Racing Kart has found success in Europe and is taking the United States by storm. Behind the growth of the Italian chassis brand is the exclusive importer for Eastern United States and Canada - DRT Racing. A new force within the karting industry, the operation is finding results in shifterkart and TaG racing in both sprint and road racing disciplines. The latest addition to the expanding dealer network under the DRT Racing banner is Wisconsin’s Andrew Chase Racing.
Andrew Chase Racing (ACR) is owned and operated by former racer Andrew Chase. For a number of years, Chase was a racer himself, until he moved toward working within the industry - getting his start a prominent Wisconsin kart shop. The 30-year old gained about 10 years of experience before creating ACR in early 2010, focused around providing one-on-one customer support for racers within the Wisconsin and Illinois area. His work with drivers of all ages at different tracks throughout the Great Lakes area has equated to strong results, including the WKA Manufacturers Cup Series and the Championship Enduro Series. The new deal is primed for the 2013 season as this weekend at the Mid-State Kart Club Winter Kart Show in Springfield, Illinois, ACR will have on display the DR Racing Kart.
“The new DR Racing Kart deal came about over the past few months as we started looking at options for the 2013,” stated Andrew Chase of ACR. “Lots of research was done over time. After some communication and racers input, I was really impressed with the recent success of the DR Kart. A call was then put into Don (Guilbeault) at DRT Racing, where we reached a mutual agreement. Both Don and Brian (Fisher) from DRT Racing share the same passion for this sport as we do at ACR, and will do anything to help their customers out. The guys were very helpful and knowledgeable about the DR Kart. It's a win, win for both parties involved. We will be at the Winter Kart Show this weekend in Springfield, Illinois. Stop on out and talk to about the new and exciting DR Racing Karts along with show specials going on.”
“We are very happy to have ACR on board with the DR Racing Kart and the DRT Racing family,” commented DRT Racing owner Don Guilbeault. “Andrew is a spirited person with a deep passion for the sport, something we all have here at DRT Racing. The Great Lakes area has a solid foundation for karting, and adding Andrew to the DR Racing Kart banner is another step at spreading the brand. We look forward to working with ACR in 2013 and beyond, with more dealers to be announced in the near future.”
Andrew Chase Racing is planning to work closely with racers at the club and regional level, including Badger Kart Club, the Championship Enduro Series and the Route 66 Sprint Series. Arrive and Drive programs will be available for any series and with travel options also offered. For more about ACR, contact Andrew via email Andrew@ACR-PCR.com and visit www.andrewchaseracing.com
