A new customer service-focused karting company is primed and ready to join the Texas karting community in 2018. Formed during the off-season by business associates Diego Iorio, Alexis Costa and Garrick Pina, KartOne is a new shop located in Rosenberg, Texas that will stock chassis, components, tires and engine parts to support their valued customers. The shop is excited to announce that they will become the first Italkart dealer in the state, and will work closely with the Valiante family to promote and support the quality Italian-made chassis line that they design and market. KartOne has also confirmed dealer status for both IAME engines and parts, and Evinco tires, which will position them to effectively support Texas karting.
Using their successful customer service and business experience from the LED lighting industry, Iorio and Pena are extremely excited to feed their passion for karting with this new venture. The operation’s brick-and-mortar storefront kart shop is located just miles from the karting facility in Katy, Texas and is also close to the beautiful Speedsportz Racing Park in New Caney. Karting is booming these days in Houston. KartOne has a diverse trackside schedule planned for the 2018 season, as the shop team will support their customers at all four events on the Texas ProKart Challenge and the entire Speedsportz Racing Park club series. Event attendance is also planned for the Gulf Coast Karters club in Katy.
The new operation is currently developing dealer relationships with many of the sport’s top brands to service the needs of the Texas karting community. To that end, KartOne has secured a dealer program to sell and support Italkart chassis, which have a long and successful history in North America. The Italkart has found success from coast-to-coast, winning in the Pacific Northwest in IKF Gold Cup competition, as well as in the Northeast on the growing F Series Gearup Challenge. Italkart has stood atop the podium at the Florida Winter Tour and they have also won at the highest level of racing in the United States – the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals. KartOne is dedicated to winning races for Italkart in Texas as well.
Racers will be able to find KartOne at various highly prestigious local, regional, and national racing events that the team will be attending this coming 2018 racing season. They are also looking for new drivers as well, and in order to efficiently dedicate the appropriate time and attention to the team, limited driver spots are currently open.
