“I’m really looking forward to doing some races in the RHPK series this year with the Karting magazine team.

Piers Prior – Kart development and driver coach

“I am really excited to be teaming up with Karting Magazine, Biz karts and RHPK for 2016 to help develop and promote the new Biz Pro kart chassis. I’ve known both Chris and Lee for a while now and I am honored they have asked me for their help. I’ll be at the first two rounds at least to help in any way I can with the kart set up wise, as well as to help my team mates get the most from the kart. I’ve raced in this championship the last couple of years so I’m hoping I’ll be able to bring something to the team.  I’m excited to get going at the first round of the championship in March.”
