Karts & Parts, a long time company in the Canadian karting industry, has recently joined forces with PSL Karting to provide support and sales to the CRG product line. Located in central Ontario less than an hour from two of Canada’s premiere tracks, Karts & Parts will be a major player in the development and increase in CRG branded drivers in the heart of Canada.
Based in a premier location and set to have a presence at the Goodwood Kartway’s TRAK Championship and Mosport International Karting (MIKA) championship series by supporting CRG branded drivers with trackside advice, sales and service, Karts & Parts will be a valuable asset to the Ontario karting market. While Karts & Parts will continue to sell and service the LH product line, a subsidiary of CRG, company officials will help build and establish a strong CRG following. Owned and operated by longtime karting family, the Herders, Lon and Kyle Herder will continue to front the Karts & Parts program.
“When I drove for PSL in 2010, I won the Canadian and Eastern Canadian Karting Championships in the DD2 category,” expressed Kyle Herder. “These were the first DD2 championships to PSL’s name and I feel as if I helped kick start their world class DD2 program.”
Herder continued, “Karts & Parts and PSL have worked together for many years and we are thrilled to take this partnership to a new level, with K&P now becoming a CRG dealer, we hope to give the product the recognition it deserves. I’m proud and excited to work with such an elite brand, such as CRG. I’m hoping over the next few months I can secure a strong lineup of drivers to take on 2014 as K&P has high expectations for results.”
“After working with Kyle for the last four years, he has become one of the most knowledgeable CRG/LH representatives in Ontario,” explained Andrew Campbell, Director of Race Development for PSL Karting. “His professionalism, and dedication to the brand is of the highest we have seen in our CRG network. Karts & Parts will serve as an authorized PSL/CRG dealer for Ontario, and will work to build brand recognition of the CRG as the product continues to progress forward. With our most recent results proving the chassis is capable of winning in Rotax, Kyle will be there to support the client’s needs.”
With previous PSL Karting/CRG dealers taking on additional karting brands for retail sales, it was a natural fit for Herder, given his knowledge and success aboard CRG branded chassis. Also, with CRG making a strong effort in the Rotax market, PSL Karting and Karts & Parts are looking forward to a very successful 2014 racing season.
PSL Karting’s Dominic Labrecque added, “Kyle has been a loyal dealer of PSL for quite some time, and the decision seemed natural to make him an authorized Ontario PSL/CRG dealer. Karts & Parts has a 20-year legacy, and the proper tools and materials to run a professional racing team and service support at the Ontario legacy tracks. He will be a complimenting addition to PSL’s existing dealers in Ontario.”
PSL Karting will continue to offer full arrive and drive opportunities, part sales and service for the CRG product line, technical support, data and track debriefs as well as an elite national level race team that will travel to all major events throughout North America.
