GFC Karting Wins At National Debut

 Swedetech doesn't normally highlight one specific team or chassis supplier in our own drafted press releases because we have strived to be an engine provider and servicer for all karters, not just specific drivers under a certain tent or brand.  With that being said, this is not a normal PR for a team.  

Gary Carlton is SwedeTech family, working in our shop and even living with the owner.  The relationship goes back many, many years.  It is not often you are presented with a chance to be apart of something special, something different, something new.  

We have watched GFC, Gary F......N Carlton, grow up from a teen to a man, and now to a business owner and team director.  We were able to watch his dedication to his craft, both afar and in our own shop.  Cutting and welding frames, throughing them into the back of a pickup, and heading out to a local Norcal kart track for testing.

Fast forward to November 3, 2018.  GFC team driver, Mathias Ramirez-Barrero, aboard his GFC GT14 shifter chassis, powered by a SwedeTech Vortex Rok engine, won the main event at the Vortex Rok Cup USA, Rok the Rio.

This was the national coming out for the brand new GFC Team, and it was capped off with a huge win.

Congratulations Gary and to your team of hard workers.  

"Our National debut could not have gone any better. With the amount of work and testing we have done developing the chassis and working closely with Swedetech Racing Engines it was great seeing all the drivers preforming well on track. I would like to thank all of our mechanics and drivers for all their hard work this past weekend.

A big thank you to our sponsors Hammer Nutrition, Molecule, New Line, and Minus 273. Last but not least a massive thank you to Swedetech Racing Engines for giving us the best power in the business in every single category we entered." - Gary Carlton
