Jurca Moves to Newly Formed Tony Kart USA

December 19th, 2005:

Cliff Kujala standing ready for the challenge in 2006 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 events.

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 EVS.

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 official release.
