Big news out of St-Hilaire, Quebec this week as a new kart-racing team has been formed. Sacha Gagnon, Luc Lussier and Alex Vincent have joined forces to form the new SH Racing Team, to be called SHR. The team has also announced it will race aboard FA Karts, a popular brand from the OTK family.
The team will operate out of the SH Karting facility in St-Hilaire, but will operate separately from the current SH Karting operation. The team will also be strictly racing, with plans to compete in events across North America.
“We have decided that the best way to operate the race team at SH was to separate it from the track and facility,” explains Sacha Gagnon of SHR. “We will be a full force race team focusing our support on younger drivers to help them perform at their best as they move up the karting ladder.”
The crew is currently confirming and setting their schedule for 2014, with plans to kick it off at the Florida Winter Tour when it opens up in Homestead, Florida in January. A full season of racing is planned for both Ontario and Quebec when the Canadian karting season begins in April with plans to focus on the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship, Coupe du Quebec and Canadian National Championships.
“We are very excited to be on the grid aboard FA Karts in 2014,” continued Gagnon. “The OTK product line is very impressive right now and I feel that is our best opportunity to win races.”
With Alex Vincent of AV Performance on their roster, Vincent will be managing the engine department for the race team.
