Jurca Moves to Newly Formed Tony Kart USA
December 19th, 2005:
Tony Kart S.R.L. is proud to announce the development of their own
support organization in the United States that places the already
established dealer network in direct connection with the Italian
Factory. Kart shops expressing continued interest in Tony Kart Racing
Chassis and OTK Kart Components have been contacted and informed
of the new system so they can place orders and begin to fill the
demand for product.
This new system will give Tony Kart an increased focus by having
direct access to demands from the US market, which will also support
a continuous development of products. Last year, Tony Kart put forth
efforts in developing the business in the US. These efforts included
a European Support Team participating and giving support at race
The front figures in the new Tony Kart USA organization are Johnny
Mislijevic and Cliff Kujala. Johnny, a former Formula Super A World
Champion for Tony Kart with a background in engineering and business
administration, has been focusing on the development of Tony Kart
business in the US from the beginning of 2005.
Cliff Kujala has worked with the importing and distribution of
Tony Kart since 2003 and will be a USA coordinator and daily contact
for all dealers to assist them in ordering product, as well as provide
a direct technical support relationship with the team in Europe.
This direct technical support will help the technical information
find its way to the karting public.
Tony Kart will also keep a US Race Team going with plans to contend
both the East and West Stars of Karting series, as well as the CIK-FIA
North American Championships. Responsible person for managing and
coordinating the Race Team will be Kujala, whom has extended previous
experience in this role.
While currently in the process of finalizing the USA team roster
for 2006, the official announcement of the newest member of Tony
Kart USA is ready. David Jurca will compete in the 2006 Stars of
Karting ICC category aboard a Vortex RVS powered Tony Kart Racer
Tony Kart is proud to have David join its US Race Team, after having
had the eyes on him for some time. He has the ability to elevate
the performance of his team as a whole, which is the type of team
atmosphere Tony Kart wants to encourage and promote.
Tony Kart US will soon announce the complete team roster in an
