AMP Kart Racing is proud to announce a new partnership with BirelART Karting. AMP will be an exclusive supplier of BirelART karts and partner with PSL Karting to help successful drivers in the AMP Karting Series reach the national level. 

BirelART has been extremely successful at the national level and they most recently clinched the 2021 SKUSA Supernational title in Las Vegas. BirelART had over fifty drivers in Vegas for the SKUSA event last year and in the Pro Shifter class, they claimed four of the top-six positions in Super Sunday’s main event.

In addition to their support at the national level, BirelART will also be providing technical support in the form of training for AMP mechanics over 12 weeks which will allow for unprecedented trackside support. They will bring their on-track knowledge to AMP in the form of a revamped Kart School curriculum to help drivers of any skill level improve their lap times. 

The AMP kart track is one of the most extreme in the world and features 43 feet of elevation change, the most in the world. The elevation and technical nature of the track makes it one of the best places to improve as a driver and make the transition from karts to cars.
