Italkart and Jurca Re-unite for SuperNationals
Italkart is pleased to announce that David Jurca will return to the IM driver line up for the Las Vegas SuperNationals and the 2007 karting season. Jurca will be a factory supported driver for the Italian based Italkart chassis manufacture while Italian Motors will continue to run the North American import and racing operations.
Jurca will be piloting the all new Italkart Supersonic V powered by an IM Tuned TM engine along side current IM driver Tad Funakoshi and guest driver TBA in ICC. �I really need to thank Tonykart for the opportunity they gave me last season. Re-joining Italian Motors is like coming home. I think the great working relationship and the strong Italkart/IM Tuned TM package will give me the best odds of winning in Las Vegas this year�, said Jurca.
Jurca represented Italkart and Italian Motors for nearly nine seasons and worked closely with driver coach and team manager Michael Valiante. �I am glad to welcome David back to our team because he is one of the best drivers I have worked with. Having Funakoshi and Jurca working together will only make our ICC program even stronger. We plan to start testing immediately for the SuperNationals,� said Team manager, Michael Valiante.
