"This is a program that we hope picks up a lot of steam for this year as Darrell is a wealth of knowledge and an amazing resource on Rotax and their entire product line." said Garry Lobaugh, President of MRP Motorsport. "We want to thank SRA Karting for partnering up with us in bringing Darrell here for this event and to Rotax for all they do to increase support for our dealer network and customer base."
Darrell will be on-hand for the duration of the Florida Winter Tour Rotax event this weekend at Palm Beach International Raceway spanning Thursday, February 18 through Sunday, February 21, providing technical and tuning support alongside both the MRP/GoRotax.com and SRA Karting technical teams. He will also be available for additional events for future events if consumer demand warrants.
