|As an integral part of it's long-term vision for 4-Cycle racing, GSKA and Luttrell Racing are proud to announce the addition of the WKA Senior LO206 Briggs and Stratton class to our line up. Kyle Luttrell of Luttrell Racing (manufacturer of the Ionic Edge chassis) has stepped forward to sponsor this new-to-GSKA class.
The LO206 is a spec engine package manufactured to exacting tolerances and then sealed by Briggs & Stratton racing. The package has proven to be truly race-ready and competitive right out of the box. The package features a recoil starter and very tight class controls to keep costs as low as possible.
Luttrell Racing will be offering this engine race ready (less clutch) for under $700, or for those wanting to try before they buy, as a rental at $150 per race.
GSKA and Luttrell Racing believe that the addition of this class will bring new racers to GSKA events without necessarily drawing entries away from existing classes. In addition, this class is a key part of the GSKA transition plan away from "Clone" engines. Another exciting benefit of the LO206 class is the opportunity to compete in WKA Gold Cup National events at a very affordable price. With annual events in nearby Jacksville, FL and Kershaw, SC, WKA Gold Cup events would offer GSKA regulars a new challenge with their existing equipment.
We welcome Kyle Luttrell and Luttrell Racing back to GSKA racing and sponsorship after being absent for the 2013 season!
