Phil Giebler Racing, one of the most renown kart racing teams and Ricciardo Kart distributor on the West Coast, put on a star-studded event for their customers at CalSpeed Karting and celebrated the birthday of Formula One Champion driver, Jenson Button. Jenson invited his good friend and Red Bull Racing driver, Daniel Ricciardo as the duo spent the afternoon lapping, discussing the old days of karting with PGR drivers, and demonstrating the 2018 Ricciardo karts to the 90+ people at this very private event.

Drivers were able to get on track and race the IAME powered karts for some laps to get a feel of the Birel ART developed Ricciardo Kart, featuring the new wind-tunnel inspired body work and 2018 graphic kit.

Daniel Ricciardo, passionate about Motorsports, came together with Birel ART a few years ago to collaborate on a Ricciardo branded kart, a machine that had immediate success on a global scale earning Championships on National karting circuits everywhere.  Phil Giebler, a veteran kart racer, driver coach and team owner and his father Everett, have taken charge of the brand management and Ricciardo distribution for West Coast America, making use of their name and experience to grow the Ricciardo brand for maximum success.

Phil Giebler, President PGR: ÃƒÆ’¢â‚¬Å“It was an honor to host Jenson's birthday and for the PGR Kickoff (#pgrkickoff) event for teams and drivers with Daniel Ricciardo.  Having iconic drivers present to inspire our drivers was a great experience for all.”
