Percat kart team forges European pathway

JND Racing, the karting team co-founded by Supercars driver Nick Percat, has established a pathway to the ultra-competitive European scene.

Having already struck up a relationship with FA Kart, JND is now working with Fernando Alonso’s A14 Management and Spanish karting team DPK Racing to give Aussie young guns a platform to explore opportunities abroad.

“From the JND side it’s very exciting,” said Percat.

“We want to give kids the opportunity to be in contact with the right people in Europe.

“It’s a passion of mine, that side of the business. For us, it’s not all about the karting – it’s about providing the guidance they need to get to Supercars, IndyCar, F1, whatever they want to do.

“To be able to link up with A14 and Fernando and his management team is crucial to that.

“We now have friends in Europe that can help guide the parents as much as the kids about how to make that move. And on the DPK side, its a world-class karting team and back-to-back world champions so there’s an opportunity for us to help send a driver over to compete at top events, even the world championships.

“It can be difficult to find an opening in a big team like that without the right support.

“It’s great to have this link. And if we can put together the right program we’d love to bring some of their star drivers over to do a couple of rounds of the Australian Karting Championship. That would amazing.”

JND is set to field nine drivers in this year’s AKC.
