Taking advantage of his growing reputation, Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc has launched his own brand of kart.
Partnering with renowned manufacturer Birel ART, the CL chassis will carry all the usual quality and Freeline components synonymous with the Italian brand.
The karts come in the same black-red-white colours as Leclerc’s crash helmet in Formula One, including his signature number 16 branding.
The Charles Leclerc chassis line will consist of a complete range from Baby and Mini karts to OK / Junior, KZ, Rotax and even rental karts.
“You must always remember where you come from,” said the Monegasque driver.
“I know what I owe to karting: everything! It was there that my passion for motorsports was established, it was there that I learned the basics that allowed me to progress to the top of the pyramid and it was also there that I met some of the important people who supported me afterwards.”
“I had been determined to do something for karting for a long time, and I think now is the right time,” Charles continued.
“BirelART’s skills were recently confirmed by a magnificent double at the KZ World Championship. I wanted the chassis bearing my name to be able to perform very well in a wide range of conditions. Only a major factory like BirelART can guarantee such a high quality of production on a large scale.”
The Leclerc karts will be available in Australia on request via Birel ART importer Patrizicorse – contact HERE.
