  • 09-10-28-c2Pserra Racing is proud to announce C2 Kart Supply of Smith's Falls, Ontario as the newest dealer of the world-renowned Birel chassis line. Located in the small town just minutes from the Lombardy Kart Track, C2 Kart Supply will begin selling the full line of Birel chassis and Freeline components from their 1,100 square foot shop. C2 Kart Supply is owned and operated by the Lombardy Kart track operators Gord Costello and Rick Clark. The two have a passion for karting and a love of competition, something their customers can thrive on.

    "I am proud to announce C2 Kart Supply as the latest dealer of the Birel chassis line," comments Peter Serravalle, owner of Pserra Racing, the exclusive distributor of the Birel chassis line in Canada. "Rick and Gord have built a great track and now adding a kart shop stocked with Birel product will be great for everyone in the 613 area code."

    The eastern province duo is also very excited about the new venture. C2 Kart Supply is currently working on the final touches for the warehouse and showroom at the Smith's Falls location. C2 Kart Supply is a Rotax distributor and service centre stocking all the latest Rotax parts and accessories along with engine building support from the Pserra Racing engine shop. Along with supporting two-cycle programs, C2 Kart Supply will be supporting local four-cycle racers with the supplies and equipment they need. As the 2010 season kicks into gear in the spring, C2 Kart Supply will be providing trackside support at all Lombardy Kart Track events.

    "We are very excited about taking on the Birel line. Gord (Costello) has been running one for the last six years and really likes the product," comments C2 Kart Supply partner Rick Clark. "It is great that Peter (Serravalle) has resurrected the Birel line here in Canada."

    Kart Lombardy is a track worth visiting for everyone from family oriented racers to experienced professionals. Costello and Clark have done an excellent job from start to finish and have been rewarded with a facility that will be respected by many. Just a couple hours outside the GTA, this beautiful facility should play host to regional competition in the near future. Being planted right in the middle of Kingston and Ottawa, it could also play host to an Ontario-Quebec battleground. So if you're ever in the area, or have an odd race weekend off, travel to Kart Lombardy and check out Ontario's newest karting facility.

    new showroom at Pserra RacingAlong with a new dealership in Ontario, Pserra Racing is putting the finishing touches on a new dealership in Quebec and news releases should follow shortly. Also, Pserra Racing has worked with the Birel Factory in Italy to bring back the very popular AM29 chassis. This chassis is a proven race winner in four-cycle Honda competition, and many requests have come in looking for this model that is for sale now and is on the way from the factory in Italy.

    "Our plan is to continue to build out the Birel chassis line in Ontario and Quebec," comments Peter Serravalle, team principal of Pserra Racing. "The Birel chassis works amazing here in North America and with having great drivers we can really test our equipment for set-ups and engine tuning."

    The Pserra Racing engines department performed well in 2009, helping pace a number of drivers to top results in 2009. Pserra engine power would help Darren White take the 2009 BSRKC Rotax DD2 championship. Garret Grist would use Pserra power take the 2009 ASN Canada FIA Rotax Junior National Championship and the 2009 BSRKC Rotax Junior title. All Pserra Racing engines are built in house, prepped and then dyno tuned for quality and performance.

    The next on track event for the Pserra Racing crew will be the SuperKarts! USA SuperNationals, being held in Las Vegas, Nevada in mid November. Drivers listed so far include Federico Montoya, brother of NASCAR drive Juan Pablo Montoya, Michael Vincec, Christopher Ernst and Spencer Todd. Also the team is currently putting the final touches on their Florida Winter Tour program and interested drivers from across North America are encouraged to contact Pserra Racing for more details.
