Former kart superstar James Courtney launches kart brand

Holden V8 Supercars star, James Courtney is set to pass on the experience of his youth and support the next generation of racers by launching his own line of go-karts under the JC Kart banner. Courtney is a two-time CIK-FIA World Karting Champion, having won the 1995 World Junior Karting Championship held at Braga in Portugal, and the Senior title in Salbris, France, just two years later. He is the only Australian to have won a world karting title at any level.

The first JC Kart to be unveiled next month. Manufactured in Italy, JC Karts will offer a line of models covering the entire range of go-karting categories, from Cadet to the CIK-FIA classes. “I cannot explain how excited and proud I am launching JC Karts. I have many great memories of my time karting, and for the past few years have been kicking around the idea of how I could again become involved and give something back to it – and JC Karts is the results.”
