With arguably the largest and most prestigious karting event set to take place in one months time, one Canadian driver is doing some serious preparation as he looks forward to the SKUSA SuperNationals in Las Vegas, USA. Nico Fattore of King City, Ontario has travelled across the Atlantic to do some serious preparation for SuperNationals 17, landing at the GP Karts factory in Italy.
Fattore enjoyed his time at last years SuperNationals, but quickly realized he needed to up his game before he returned this year to Sin City.
“Last year really opened my eyes at the SuperNationals,” explained Fattore when contacted by CKN. “There is so much talent in the KZ class, plus the track and event are so gruelling. As much as we can, we prepare in Canada, but without a doubt, heading to Italy to work with the GP Racing guys was the best direction we could go in before heading back to Las Vegas.”
After working with the GP Karts team and specifically Gianpiero Cavaciuti, Fattore has entered in two events with the GP Racing squad, this weekend in an Italian Winter Cup event in Ottobiano, and next weekends CSAI Italian Championships in Laghi, Italy.
Fattore thanks Joe Launi, Curtis Fox and the GP Canada Racing Team for their support and guidance.
Following his first two International starts, we will follow up with Nico before he heads to Las Vegas.
