Thanks to the new co-operation between Praga and Formula K, the Praga élite KZ driver Patrik Hájek is going to change color of his racing suit and starting the next race in the black and green. CIK FIA European Championship in Genk will therefore offer a fight between Patrik Hájek on Formula K and Jonathan Thonon on Praga.
Praga, Formula K and OK1 are three karting brands produced in the innovative kart factory IPK which wants to offer a range of diversified high quality products, but at the same time wants to keep the racing rivalry between professional teams of these brands.
As Daniel Sliva the chairman of the Board of IPKarting s.r.l. says:
“In motorsport it is the passion, human effort and innovation that are a base of progress, and because journey to success is our goal, we believe that the healthy rivalry between our brands helps to bring innovation and offer higher quality products and great race results.”
Here is what Patrik Hájek has to say about this challenging team change:
“My co-operation with Praga is full of great chances for me as well as for whole IPK factory Group ; I won’t only get more driving opportunities but I will also play on the awesome possibility to cross-test, compare and fine tune both Praga and FK chassis in racing conditions.“
Another new member of Formula K Factory Team is young American driver Gary Carlton, whose first race on the FK chassis will be CIK FIA World Cup Championship in Le Mans on 9thof September 2015.
From 1st of July he will also work as a Sales Director of Formula K and one of his biggest responsibilities will be preparation of the future Formula K Rotax Team.
We hope that this news bring lot of success, great results and benefit to quality of both Praga and Formula K chassis.
