With the SKUSA Supernationals poised to take place at the Las Vegas Convention center in less than a week many teams are putting the final touches on their campaigns for national glory. The RaceLab Formula K effort is excited to welcome the addition of Jack Hawksworth aboard their program for the event. Hawksworth is currently competing in the Verizon Indy Car Series in the number 41 car for AJ Foyt Racing.|
Jack is no stranger to karting as he was a mainstay at the forefront of European karting for several years and has been spending some time training overseas at several British karting championships where he has been already claiming victories in preparation for the big race in Las Vegas.
Hawksworth will be running a Factory Formula K racing kart out of the RaceLab stable powered by a factory prepared IAME powerplant and couldn't be happier than he is venturing into this event with the FK squad.
"I'm absolutely delighted to be joining the Racelab Formula K team for the 19th edition of the Supernats. I'm looking forward to joining the team and also working with some old friends from IAME who I drove for in the 2010 season when they first debuted there KZ engine. I feel prepared and know that I will have some good material at my disposal. I'm excited to see what we can do!" commented Hawksworth.
Team Principle Steve Rickman was also full of excitement when he learned about Jack joining forces with him and his crew "When I heard Jack was interested in running with us for the big show I was very happy as aside from his current role in the Indy series I remember how strong he was in karts a few years ago" "I am very pleased with the assistance of Formula K, IPK, and IAME we were able to put together something to make this work out for everyone".
The Team will feature a strong lineup of drivers from all over the world including factory drivers: Patrik Hajek, Gary Carlton, Petr Ptacek Jr and the USA's Jake Craig. All of which will be considered to be contenders in their own categories.
