Sydney’s Daniel Holihan has become one of the first drivers to secure his spot on the grid for the 2011 CIK Stars of Karting Series.
Holihan, who’s step father Geoff Morgan is a former Porsche Cup Champion, will make the step up from the Clubman ranks to the Pro Light (KF1) category with the continued support from Boylan Traffic Solutions.
The former North Shore Kart Club Champion will line up alongside Daniel Baker and Matthew Waters under the Parramatta Kart Warehouse banner with the aim of finishing inside the top ten in the competitive category.
“Next year will definitely be a big challenge but something that I'm really looking forward to, I’ve watched the Pro Light races with interest this year and have got my sights set of finishing inside the top ten in the 2011 championship,” said Holihan.
“Peter Boylan has been a great sponsor for me this year in Clubman Light and I’m delighted to be able to continue the relationship as I make the step into the Pro category next year. He's passionate about motorsport and has been involved in the sport in a variety of ways over many years.”
Boylan has been pleased with Holihan’s continual improvement over the past 12 months and is delighted to be able to provide him with the opportunity to take the next step of his karting career.
"Daniel has been involved around motor racing for many years and I'm pleased to be able to help make his karting dream come true by running in Stars of Karting Series, which is the elite form of the sport, ” said Boylan.
“We will also sponsor Matthew Brabham in Formula Ford and will continue to sponsor Fujitsu Series V8 Supercar driver James Moffatt in 2011. So at the moment all things are looking bright for Boylan Traffic Solutions.”
Holihan will continue to be supported by Linkme.com.au, Parramatta Kart Warehouse, Shayne Piper Race Engines, Galvin Plumbing, Kosmic and Remo Racing throughout 2011.
The 2011 CIK Stars of Karting Series will be held over five rounds, the first of which will be contested in Ipswich, Queensland on February 26/27.
